    iMac pro Upgrade?

    Jason Cole

      I am using Lightroom CC Classic (7.1) and my camera is a 5DS. I have shot at 28MP normally (Medium RAW).

       

      My current iMac is a 5K retina, 4ghz processor, 32gb 1600hmz ram, 3tb fusion drive, 4gb AMD Radeon R9 M395X (not a bad spec).

       

      When using Lightroom though I am constantly waiting for the computer. I build the smart previews and the 1/1 previews but still very slow. i clikc next and its a second delay then the image comes up.

       

      Magnify this by 1500 shots at a wedding and the delays are very very time consuming. What should take me 2-3 hours takes me 5 to 6 hours.

       

      So my question is...

       

      Will the new iMac pro vastly speed up Lightroom or does Lightroom just run at a set speed? Considering the 10K investment but only if the iMac will really speed things up. I would be very upset to spend that money and get little performance increase. Even if you don't know the answer, who would I talk to to find out? Apple? Adobe? Thoughts please.

       

      Thanks
