Since launching her Nerdy & Quirky YouTube channel in 2012, Sabrina Cruz5 has improved her creative expressions with the help of new computer technology. The University of Toronto student produces entertaining and informational Cool History videos covering topics such as Why We Kiss Under the Mistletoe and 3 Interesting Idiom Origins.
Cruz uses Adobe Premier* Pro to compile all assets and create animation, then adds audio and special effects. Her creative magic happens on an All-in-One (AiO) 4K touchscreen computer powered by Intel® technology. She said her PC is the most important component in her creative process.
“I really hate long file export times and Intel® processor-based PCs really speed things up,” Cruz said.
New 8th Generation Intel® Core™ processors combined with Intel® Optane™ memory give creators like Cruz performance they need from desktop and notebook computers. Intel® Optane™ memory adapts to a creator’s needs by preloading and accelerating access to frequently used documents, pictures, videos, and application files. Intel® Optane™ memory helps systems remember those things even after the system is turned off, so when the system is turned back on they load faster.
The performance of Intel® technology is critical to producing her successful videos quickly, easily, and comfortably.
Better Performance for Creation
Cruz often creates using the touchscreens on her laptop and AiO. She said it’s a very natural way of interacting with her computer.
“I can scroll down pages of research with my finger…like using a giant tablet,” she said.
She feels more productive working on a larger screen.
“With my AiO, I have the equivalent of two solidly-sized monitors in one unit, and I don’t need to angle my head or pivot,” she said. “I can look at one screen, and everything I need is there.”
Her creativity excels when her computer responds in an instant. New 8th Generation Intel® Core™ processors and Intel® Optane™ memory give computers additional responsiveness beyond performance improvements that come from adding more standard system memory. By accelerating access to data, including large media files, an 8th Gen Intel® Core™ processors combined with Intel® Optane™ memory brings smoother workflow and leads to more creative output. It speeds video editing and rendering, and high-resolution image manipulation, and delivers smooth video. Desktops powered by 8th Generation Intel® Core™ processors can load large media files up to 2.6x faster2 3 than those without Intel® Optane™ memory.
Notebooks powered by 8th Gen Intel® Core™ i7+ processors with Intel® Optane™ memory can load large media files up to 1.6x faster.2 4
The ability to boot up, launch applications, and do virtually everything faster, smoother, and easier are critical to creators like Cruz. Advanced technologies from Intel continue to help creators improve the way they work and bring their ideas to life.
