One of the core values of Puget Systems is transparencyWe detest hype in the midst of an industry that is full of it. Our mission is to provide the highest quality hardware and consultation services to our customers, and to back up our decisions by freely sharing what we've learned along the way. To earn a place in our product line, a computer component undergoes rigorous testing. We apply the results of our testing, along with our years of experience in learning reliability trends and manufacturer characteristics, to make prudent decisions about what we can put our name behind, whether that's an individual part or an entire computer. With the following articles, we are writing up the results of these internal processes and discussions, and taking them public. We feel we can take this on with a unique perspective as we evaluate each topic with the experience, resources, and objectivity of a system builder. If there is a topic you'd like us to write about, email us at !
The initial release of Lightroom Classic CC gave us some great performance gains, but the Lightroom team is not done yet. With the new 7.2 update, we once again get some terrific performance improvements, this time with an emphasis on improved multi-core performance using high core count CPUs in a number of tasks.
With Lightroom Classic CC, Adobe is advertising performance improvements for a number of tasks including importing, generating smart previews, scrolling through images, and much more. In this article we will be running our Lightroom benchmark suite to see if Classic CC is actually faster than CC 2015.
Lightroom contains a few tasks that can utilize a higher number of CPU cores, but much of the application can only take advantage of a couple of cores. With the new Coffee Lake 8th Gen CPUs seeing an increase in core count, will Lightroom see a significant benefit?
Lightroom contains a number of tasks that can utilize a decent number of CPU cores, but with Intel's new CPUs you can now have up to 18 physical cores on a single consumer CPU. Can Lightroom actually make use of all these additional cores?
In this article we will be examining how the new Skylake-X and Kaby Lake-X CPUs on X299 compare to the previous generation Intel CPUs and AMD's Ryzen CPUs in Lightroom.
CPUs often get a lot of press and reviews, but unfortunately for content creators (and other professionals), it is almost impossible to find relevant non-gaming benchmarks to help you decide what CPU to purchase. In this article we will be looking at the new AMD Ryzen CPUs to see how they perform compared to their Intel counterparts.
There is no doubt that a modern workstations are incredibly fast, but it can be difficult to determine how much of a performance gain you might see if you were to replace your 2,3,4, or 5 year old workstation. To try to answer this question as objectively as we can, we decided to benchmark five workstations using the highest end components over the past 6 years to see how they compare in Lightroom 2015.8
With the new Kaby Lake CPUs from Intel, the main question everyone wants to know is how much faster they are compared to the old CPUs. In this article, we will be tackling this question in terms of Lightroom performance by examining how the new Intel Core i7 7700K and the Intel Core i5 7600K perform compared to the previous generation Intel Core i7 6700K and Intel Core i5 6600K. In addition, we will also look at a number of "High-End" Core i7 CPUs including the i7 6850K, i7 6900K, and i7 6950X.
While what CPU or video card you should purchase tends to be at the forefront of any workstation hardware discussion, storage is often just as important. While there is little existing evidence that Lightroom benefits from particularly fast storage drives for your project files, considering how fast modern hardware has become we felt the need to look into it in more detail.
With hundreds of CPU models available, it can be a daunting task to determine which CPU will give you the best performance in Lightroom. In this article we will be examining the multi-threading capabilities of Lightroom CC and Lightroom 6 to determine whether a CPU with a high frequency or a CPU with a high core count will give you the best possible performance.
