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.
Lightroom enjoys a big performance gain with Ivy Bridge (11.6% with the Core i5s and 10.8% with the Core i7s). The Core i7-3770K thus outperforms the Core i7-990X (LGA 1366 six-core) but the LGA 2011 six-cores are still untouchable. The i5-3570K extends its lead over the FX-8150.
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 gains are even more significant with an 11.7% improvement from the Core i5-2500K to the Core i5-3570K and 12.3% from the Core i7-2600K to the Core i7-3770K. Here however, the LGA 1366 six-cores are out of reach and the FX-8150 is once again down on the i5-3570K.
