Recommended Systems for Adobe Lightroom



Lightroom Workstation


High-powered, quiet system


About this System

There are so many different models, brands, and revisions of hardware that choosing the right components for your system can be a huge challenge. We've taken the time to perform in-depth analysis of Lightroom to determine exactly what kind of hardware is needed for the CPU, RAM, and video card. This ensures that you will be getting a system that has all the capabilities you need without spending money on components that will not be beneficial.

Lightroom Workstation

We have found that most aspects of Lightroom are only moderately efficient at using multiple CPU cores. Because of this, our Lightroom Workstation uses a high frequency Quad core Intel Core i7 processor in order to provide the best overall performance in Lightroom. It also comes default with a mid-range NVIDIA video card which provides performance gains in Lightroom CC and Lightroom 6 when performing image editing actions in the Develop module.

This system is built around our popular Serenity certified system and includes all the optimizations for quiet operations that are found on that system.
