Adobe Lightroom 3.4
We have now introduced photo processing by lot to our protocol. We started by exporting a lot of 96 RAW photos from a 5D Mark II as JPEGs in Lightroom, applying various effects such as colour and lens correction or noise processing.
As we saw previously, Lightroom is fully able to benefit from the surplus bandwidth on offer in LGA 2011. The 3960X is therefore 25.6% faster than the i7-990X, and the gap to the 2600K is 35.6%.
In Bibble we processed a lot of 48 RAW photos. Note that Bibble is slower than Lightroom but, as with the rendering engines, we didn’t carry out this test to compare the applications with each other - this would imply comparing the quality of results as a slower export may also be of higher quality.
In Bibble the difference between LGA 1366 and LGA 2011 is lower with an advantage of just 10.7% for the new arrival. All six cores are however put to work and photos are processed 53.4% faster than with the 2600K.
