p.1 #1 · OT: Help my LR 4.2 fly - whats in your box?


***this is not a 'I deleted my preferences file and its all better' thread. This is purely about the hardware platform on your PC if you have a copy of LR that has no/little slider lag in the develop module.

Do you have an installation of Lightroom 4.2 on your PC that in your opinion is well fast and has excellent responses in the develop module.

If so please post (privately if you want) your MB model & socket, RAM model and CPU. I am particularly interested in single-die quad-core solutions on gigabyte boards but I will take what I can get.

TIA
Ben

I'm running
- Asus P8Z77-M Pro motherboard
Intel i7 2700k @ 3.5gh
Crucial Ballistix Sport DDR3-1600 (PC3-12800) dual channel memory (4x4GB modules)
OS, LR, some programs installed on SSD #1
SSD #2 scratch disk with LR/windows cache

LR 4.2 flies on my machine. Almost no delay when changing images in develop pane.

Im running..

i5 2500K @3.6ghz (I think, could be 3.8)
16gb ram
2 ssd drives

I would NOT say that it flies, and unfortunately upgrades from where I am get pricey fast.

(I do use a custom built nas for files, but the cache is on the second ssd and my delays are mostly cpu based it seems)

How do you define "good"? When looking at an image at 100%, what's acceptable lag for display of a noise-reduction change?

Noise sliders are great. I can move it back & forth and see the change happen almost instantly

I know my specs are beyond what you inquired on, but I thought you may be able to compare to others.

Intel i7-980X Extreme Gulftown 3.33GHz Six-Core Processor Overclocked to 4.0GHz
ASUS Rampage III Extreme 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Motherboard
Corsair Dominator-GT 12GB (6 x 2GB) DDR3 SDRAM 1866 RAM with Airflow Fan
(2) Intel X25-M Mainstream 2.5" 160GB SATA II Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) in RAID0
Microsoft Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit

I didn't list my storage drive because I typically run everything from the OS drive and manually backup to the internal drive sporadically. Regardless, it plays no role in the performance.

As I've mentioned in the past, I've tried the SSDs as JBOD and RAID0. There was no difference. I was just too lazy to swap back to JBOD after I setup the RAID. Obviously, newer SSDs would be able to improve that area.

The machine is obviously scorching fast. During LR4.1 I deleted the preference file and purged all memory. That was the main thing that fixed LR. LR4.2 has retained the speed without a hiccup. My mobo also allows me to do all the BIOS-side tweaks mentioned across the web. I did similar adjustments when I built the machine a year ago. Running tests against others with similar spec levels has shown that the only bottleneck is now the processor. Since it's Intel's 3rd fastest processor (at one year old), I have no desire to upgrade for at least another year or two. (knocking on wood)

With regard to your inquiry, I have no delays in development at all. No sliders delay for me at any time. They did on the initial release of LR4.0. The only thing that will slightly slug for me personally is the brush if I have it set to auto-mask. Of course, this is where I'm my own worst enemy. I do my healing and cropping on my last pass. Swapping back and forth between these two tools is probably the hardest thing on the system. However, I still get through a wedding (cropping & cloning) in about an hour. That's cropping an average of 500 images and cloning probably 20-25% of them.

LR still exhibits the few seconds delay upon the first load of the develop module. Apparently, this is something Adobe cannot fix as it's done this for the entire LR4 release so far. It started that with the new process in 4.0. However, that is the only delay I experience. Moving image to image is practically instant.

Hope that helps in some way.

The one slider that takes a second to show the difference is my luminance slider in the noise reduction. I sometimes bump that to about 20 on very high ISOs. That takes about 1.5 seconds to show.

Mine too. Similar specs except it's not a "k" processor(which I guess you can overclock?) mine is just an off the shelf Dell XPS 8500 I7 with 16 gigs of ram. No SSD to speak of as of yet and I pulled some images up zoomed to 100% and went to town with the sliders and changes happen real time.

lol I just checked and found my problem. If you type in numbers in the luminance, it takes longer. My sliders actually do work almost instant. I'd say it updates in less than half a second. I gotta get a hold on my OCD and number typing.

I cleaned up my catalog and preferences and my system does a bit better.

I may start culling and editing on the ssd before I push files out to the nas.
