ADOBE AFTER EFFECTS PERFORMANCE
The CPU is the most important part of an After Effects workstation. Adobe is working on adding in better support for graphics cards, but as of right now, your CPU will make the biggest impact on performance. After Effects performance won't scale with CPU's with high core counts because of the removal of the 'render multiple frames' function. We chose the Ryzen 7 5800x due to it's incredible price to performance. With 8 Cores, 16 Threads, and the wide feature set of the X570 platform, this system is future proof!
It's important to have a video card that is supported by After Effects, but the performance of said card will not make a major difference in performance. For example a GTX 1060 is only 6% slower than the RTX 2080ti, which is 5 times the price. Keeping this in mind, we chose to include a mid-tier video card in this system, however you can change this to any card you want by clicking customize and changing the GPU selection in the configurator.
Adobe recommends a minimum of 16GB of RAM for 15 frame files, 32GB for 35 frame files, and 64GB+ for larger files
