Hi boys and girls.
I got myself a new Notebook a while ago and i installed Lightroom CC.
It takes a long time to fire up lightroom, it takes ages to switch to the development tool, and it takes forever to load a file till its sharp. All this happens despite the SSD in which lightroom is installed on and the photos are stored.
I fired up the Taskmanager and GPU-Shark to monitor the hardware usage. When im in developer module and edit something i get the following stats:
CPU usage: max 20%
RAM usage: ~4 GB
GPU usage: up to 10% but it never goes above idle-clockspeeds
Notebook Specs: i7 Quadcore+ Hyperthreading (8 logical Cores) 2.7 GHz (3.5 Ghz boost), 8 GB RAM, 500 GB SSD (Samsung), GTX 960M 2GB (Driver: 361.75 which is most recent)
Installed version of Lightroom: CC 2015.4 [ 1060496 ] (latest)
I've set windows energy management to max performance. I've set the Nvidia GPU to be used for lightroom within the Nvidia control panel. I'm on wall power...
I dont know what to do anymore... Why do i buy a high speced notebook if it runs lightroom slower than my 6 year old desktop??? everything else runs like hell on this machine, exept lightroom.
i got a photoshoot on saturday and wanna use the laptop for on location editing... im hoping anybody can help me
Turn off the GPU acceleration (go to Preferences, then click on the Performance Tab and then uncheck the box)
Make sure all symchronizing with Lightroom Mobile is turned off, and also be sure that facial recognition is turned off.
took your advice but it doesnt change anything...
