The Core i5-11600K processor and the GeForce RTX 3060 graphics makes this Creative workstation suitable for professional work with popular audio and photo editing tools. It’s also good for medium complexity video editing and content creation using 3D and CAD software.
This PC meets recommended system requirements of the common audio editing and music production software so you can easily edit and even produce your own music using FL Studio, Ableton Live, Reason, Cubase, SOUND FORGE, Adobe Audition, Audacity and other DAW tools. Variety of internal and external connections allows you to expand your system with professional grade sound card, MIDI controller or music instrument.
Photo editing software developers are slowly implementing GPU accelerated effects into their products but still most of the tasks are done by the CPU. That’s why we have installed a 6-core Core i5-11600K processor on the B560 motherboard with 12 MB of cache and a 3.90 GHz base clock which can be automatically increased up to 4.90 GHz in boost mode when you need extra horsepower. That makes this workstation an optimal choice for Adobe Lightroom, Photoshop and Illustrator as the benchmarks show that the software previously mentioned can effectively utiliae no more than 8 CPU cores.
If you need a computer just for photo editing in Adobe CC you should look no further than this system. It will work without any lags even while editing big media assets. An upgrade to Core i9, Ryzen 9 or Threadripper processor won’t give improvement proportional to the high increase in price unless you’re planning to do high resolution video editing and 3D content creation where CPU core count has a much bigger influence on rendering speeds and overall performance.
Video editing and post-processing
Most of the work during video exporting (rendering) process is done by the CPU, but live preview and some effect with enabled hardware acceleration lies on the back of the GPU, so it’s essential to have a good graphics card with enough VRAM (video memory). The optimal VRAM amount depends on the media resolution you work with:
|Recommended VRAM amount||4GB||6GB||8GB||10GB|
This systems in configured with a Core i5-11600K processor and 12 GB GeForce RTX 3060 graphics card which ensures that this affordable computer performs well in Adobe Premiere Pro, After Effects, Magix Vegas, DaVinci Resolve and other video editing and post-processing tools
Not only are the processor and graphics card important in video editing but also the amount and speed of RAM. We have installed 3200 MHz 16GB (2x8) DDR4 memory in this computer which is enough to work with 1080p and simple 4K video sequences. For more complex projects in 4K or higher resolution we recommend to double the amount of memory or choose a higher tier Intel Core i7/i9 or AMD Ryzen 7/9 workstation with 32GB or more RAM.
Some of you may ask why we are offering gaming class GeForce RTX 3060 graphics card in our Creative series PC instead of a professional solution like NVIDIA Quadro or AMD FirePro. The answer is simple – our experience shows that gaming cards are more affordable and delivers the same or even better performance than Quadro or FirePro. In addition to that, GeForce RTX 3060 allows you to play latest computer games in your spare time which is almost impossible on Quadro models cause their drivers aren’t optimized for games.
CAD and 3D software
Currently, most popular 3D tools like Autodesk 3ds Max, Maya, Revit and Cinema 4D can utilize only one processor core during the modelling process. That’s the main reason why these applications benefit more from higher clock speed rather than the core count. The same phenomenon applies to AutoCAD, Inventor and Revit.
The situation is quite different while rendering (Arnold, Mental Ray, V-Ray, Keyshot etc.) where processor core and thread count has a vital role on reducing the time spent exporting. That’s why many big corporations choose to do the rendering process not on production computers but separate multi-processor machines often referred to as render farms.
This Creative series PC utilizes a Core i5-11600K processor. Its clock can reach speed up to 4.90 GHz which ensures smooth 3D modelling and animation process while 6 cores & 12 threads allows to efficiently render simple 3D models. To display 3D content hassle-free a good graphics card is needed and the GeForce RTX 3060 12 GB is very effective at this.
The 3D software mentioned above suggest 8 to 16GB of RAM so with 16GB (2x8) DDR4 3200 MHz included in this configuration is enough to complete necessary tasks quickly and pleasantly.
For more complex projects and increased rendering performance please take a look at our Intel Core i9, AMD Ryzen 9 and Threadripper multi-core workstations.

The included Intel Core i5-11600K processor has 6 cores and 12 MB cache. It has a base frequency of 3.90 GHz, which can be increased to 4.90 GHz for more demanding tasks thanks to Turbo technology.Intel Core i5-11600K CPU offers an excellent price/performance ratio. Thanks to its 6 cores, 12 MB of cache and 4.90 GHz boost clock it’s score exceeds 14500+ points mark at the PassMark test which is an obvious indication of its capabilities to cope with any task you can possibly throw at it. The latest computer games, photo editing, medium complexity video editing and basic 3D content creation are just some of the works Core i5-11600K will run with ease. But if you think it’s still not powerful enough – we’re also offering Intel Core i9, AMD Ryzen 9 and Threadripper systems.
The table below shows Intel Core i5-11600K performance in the popular CineBench R20 test, which gives a very objective picture of the overall performance of the processor, as the test can efficiently use all 6 processor cores.
In PC games, Core i5-11600K also demonstrates top-notch performance. We have attached a table showing the average performance of this and other current processors in 10 PC games. Tests were performed with the powerful NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090 video card at 1080p resolution on the highest (ULTRA) quality settings.
RAM 16GB (2x8) DDR4
One of the mandatory computer components is dynamic memory also called RAM (random access memory). This parameter is quite easy to understand – the more RAM the computer has the faster and more responsive it is. In this Creative series PC we have included 16GB (2x8) DDR4 RAM which runs at 3200 MHz clock and has CL 16 latency which is optimal for this configuration.
SSD 480GB NVMe
This Creative series PC is configured with a 480GB NVMe SSD which reaches 3500 MB/s read speed and up to 2300 MB/s while writing data.

Nowadays we spend more and more of our time at the computer, so ergonomics should be a serious consideration when choosing a computer. There is a very strong relationship between proper ergonomics and optimal health. Laptops are not suitable for prolonged use due to their relatively small screen which is located too close to the keyboard. Therefore, only one of these elements can be positioned correctly at the ideal distance from the user. Continuous use and an unnatural sitting position can result in neck and back pain and even lead to deformed posture. Plus, the small screen increases strain on the eyes which can make your vision deteriorate over time.
By choosing a desktop computer equipped with keyboard, mouse and a large monitor (or two) it is much easier to set up the workplace that suits your body to avoid fatigue and pain in muscles and joints and eliminate the possibility of serious problems in the long run.
Remember to take a small 3 to 5 minute break after every hour on the computer! No matter how ergonomically your workplace is arranged you should stand up, walk around, flex your muscles, joints and eyes by alternately looking to close and far objects so the eye muscles don’t adapt to unwanted focusing at a certain distance.
Advantages of a desktop computer
Mobile processors and graphics cards have become more powerful in the last couple of years but the difference between the performance of a laptop and a desktop PC is still marginal. Of course you can run modern games and even professional photo and video editing software on a laptop but at the same price point a desktop computer will offer more performance than a laptop at almost any task.
In our experience insufficient cooling is also a serious problem in laptops and there’s an easy explanation – users want their devices to be powerful yet thin and light which is almost an impossible combination to achieve. Most consumers and manufacturers prefer design and mobility over performance, which results in a visually attractive product that heats up rapidly after just few minutes or even seconds after putting an increased load on the main components. Laptop fans start spinning faster to cope with the excessive heat. This increases the noise and is very often not effective enough, so the CPU and/or GPU reaches its temperature limit and the thermal throttling (self-preservation by significantly lowering the clock speed) kicks in. That results in a big loss of performance.
You don’t have to worry about overheating when you purchase our Creative series desktop PC. We have installed optimal Advanced Air Cooler which will make sure that the Core i5-11600K processor delivers its advertised performance without overheating. The temperature and noise levels will remain at a comfortable level all the time.
