I recently sold my Dell XPS 9550 laptop for a less powerful but more mobile Lenovo X1 Carbon. I am also building a new AMD Ryzen desktop at home for photo editing.
I received the last part of my build from Newegg yesterday, and I hope to plug things together tonight. I haven't owned a proper desktop in a few years, so I'm very interested to see how fast technology is nowadays. Here are the specs for my upcoming AMD Ryzen desktop:
- AMD Ryzen 5 1600X CPU
- ASUS ROG Strix B350-F Motherboard
- Samsung 960 EVO M.2 256GB SSD
- G.Skill TridentZ 16GB DDR4-3200 RAM (CL14-14-14-34)
- NZXT Kraken X61 CPU cooler
- EVGA Geforce GTX 1060 FTW 6GB GPU
- EVGA G3 650W PSU
- NZXT S340 Elite enclosure
- Windows 10 Professional
I use Capture One Pro 10 as my RAW processor and library manager. I use Affinity Photo when I need to make detailed adjustments to individual photos. Both Capture One Pro 10 and Affinity Photo are heavily optimized for multi-core CPUs, and both feature some degree of OpenCL GPU acceleration. I imagine they'll run quite well on this new setup!
