      Oooohhhh please overclock something like a pentium three maybe a pentium four. Try it on windows 10, or a really fun challenge a normal os from that era like Windows 2000 or maybe windows XP. Honestly I don’t even know if it can be done , but fun.

                                  Let's clear something out Linus, I like your videos but you're mistaken twice ina row. The main reason for the problem in Premiere Pro with 8k footage is not CPU.
                                  It's your reading speed. (*.*)

                                  You are running an SSD over Sata2 connection with 250mb/s at "max".
                                  You can't even play an 8k (red) footage realtime with this bandwidth.
                                  How do i know? I'm running a x5460 with sata2 SSD...
