Is anyone out there using Lightroom with i9 or Ryzen CPUs? How is the performance?
The reason I ask is because there are many reports of Lightroom not performing well if the CPU has more than 4 physical cores. 4-core CPUs are becoming hard to find (but not yet impossible), and I would certainly like to upgrade my computer to take advantage of the i9 or Ryzen power in all my applications, not just LR. However, I don't want to get an i9 or Ryzen if it would mean that Lightroom performance drops.
We are aware of the CPU core scalability issue. The team is actively working on a solution that we will roll out over time. Shorter term, Lightroom would have code in place to scale back the CPU core uses on these very high core count machines.
