    viewing, and especially editing HEVC videos (1080p 30fps) don't run smoothly on the following specs:

    windows 10
    intel 6th gen i7 6700
    512gb 850 evo
    8gb ram
    gtx 960 2gb dedicated ram
    viewing via VLC (it runs at 30fps, but panning is very slow)
    editing via tmpgenc video editor (claims support for hevc editing)

    even with a processor that has dedicated HEVC video encoding/decoding, editing videos is horribly slow.

    anyone know what hardware would work smoothly? if the 6700 is this bad, i doubt the kaby lake 7700 would do much better.

    editing on a mac may even be worse on almost all products (macbooks, imac) as they use lower end graphics cards on most models.

    oh and forget about 4k editing, that runs at literally 0-1 fps.

    What software are you using to edit your videos? If it's not Adobe Premiere or some well known software, that could be the reason. I have a feeling you wouldn't have these problems if you had a mac and used iMovie (which just recently started supporting HEVC)

    just edited that in while u were typing.

    Apple didn't invent HEVC, so i doubt they can optimize editing any better than windows can. i think the hardware required may be significantly higher than what most people expect.
