As much as I love Lightoom, I prefer to produce my DNG's in DxO. Now that I'm shooting with a 24mp camera, it is painfully slow in processing DNG's. Time to upgrade the old PC I think.
I know that Photoshop is a memory hog and I understand that Lightroom is processor intensive, anyone know where the bottleneck is with DxO?
I want to make sure I spec my new machine for best performance in all three apps. Thanks.
When you hit the process button in DxO, you'll see a progress bar for each picture/processor combo. In other words, if you have a quad core system, you'll see four pictures processing simultaneously, one for each of four pictures in your run, if you have that many selected. When one finishes, that processor will pick up a new pic, if you have more remaining to process. That suggests to me that you need as many processors as you can afford. And as much ram as you can afford as well.
