I would like to know which platform is best for Photoshop & Lightroom [mainly] - Premiere & AfterEffect [also].

Common configuration:

32gb of RAM 1600MHz

2x SSD in RAID 0 - Samsung 830 256gb

Nvidia GTX 670

What will work best:

LGA 2011 X79 with 3930 as the processor

or

LGA 1155 Z77 with 3770 as the processor

Best frequency but 2 core less is better???

 

Lightroom:

speed of import / export is not the most important to me!

what matters the most to me is the speed at which:

  • photos will be rendered in 1:1
  • changes/ajustement apply on photos

Photoshop:

performance for :

  • Panorama
  • HDR

I work with Logitech G13, should I apply changes very quickly.

Only working with RAW files from Nikon D3s D700 & Soon D800 (70mo)

 

 

Thankyou

Hello Sylvain,

The same question is actual for myself.

From all that I saw published in the Internet it seems LR is optimized to use a large amount of middle range PC and not professional workstations.

If you find more positive information, please, share it.
