While the Standard system will be faster for most Lightroom tasks, this system will be a bit faster for generating 1:1 previews and about 15% faster for exporting images. While Lightroom doesn't need a large amount of system RAM, if your workflow also involves working with very large images (larger than 1GB) in Photoshop you will need a system with plenty of system RAM. This system starts at 64GB of RAM but is upgradeable all the way to 256GB to ensure you will have all the system memory you require.It also supports NVIDIA GeForce video cards and multiple storage options.
For connectivity, this system has 12 USB 3.0 ports (10 rear, 2 front) and 4 USB 2.0 ports (2 rear, 2 front) for a total of 16 native USB ports. A USB 3.1 card can also be added to provide support for the very latest (and fastest) external storage options.
This system is based on our Genesis I certified system and includes all of the features that come with that system including free 1-year Next Business Day Onsite Service + 24hr Help Desk.
