The bottleneck is in two places – the sheer amount of data, as in 4 x HD, but also the video processing. Premiere, that I use has a list of approved video cards, and the better ones have their own processor to take the strain away. With a proper video intensive card, with it's own graphics engine – multiple streams of 4K can be managed – although I find it helps to have clips spread across two drives too. It's not good to have your computer OS on the same drive you have the clips on.
