    Do another video as a "test" with the newer AMD and Ram at their new clock potentials. Also... swap out the 980? I believe you should be able to trim down a few more seconds with a slightly newer GPU. And if it's compute you need. Try an AMD GPU with compute on and off and lets see the difference there also!! Cmon linus!! DO IT!!!

    With all your water spills you think you'd remove the line that is higher first.. not lower, to reduce the amount of water to spill out. I mean it's just physics.

    Jeez. This hurts. i went from an i5 -4520 to an i7 -6800 and ddr3 to ddr4 and my render time dropped from 6 hrs to 1 hr. (1080p understandably) but still JEEEEEESUS. 1 minute? That isnt worth

    The way Linus treats the hardware makes it obvious that he doesnt have to pay for it.

    why not use an epyc with virtualization, to have just the right amount of cores needed for the job?

    so you didnt get intel to sponsor this so why why didnt you go with ryzen dot tell me because it doesnt support thunderbolt there are work arounds and its a better chip

    You guys should start using ffmpeg, maybe with prores_amcdx....

    Would love to see you guys run some tests with Resolve using your workflow. I think it would do a much better job taking advantage of this hardware. Adobe needs to focus on optimising it's software vs adding useless features and pushing updates that crash your system.
