A value system for the amateur photographer

This system offers a good upgrade over our entry photography system. This system uses the six core AMD Ryzen 5 5600G processor which is the latest generation AMD processor.  In terms of raw compute performance, its around 25% ahead of the AMD 4350G system. It’s still a value focused system, but with the 16GB RAM and 500GB M.2 NVMe SSD and the 2TB HDD, it now leaves a regular desktop PC system for dust.

 

One of the key upgrades in this PC system is the inclusion of the Gigabyte B550M Aorus Elite motherboard.  Its higher performance than the B450M in the entry system and it is far better able to handle large volumes of data processing as it utilises the latest chipset and provides high power delivery via its 5 + 3 phase pure digital VRM.

 

The SSD drive is also a higher performance model as it uses the much higher performance M.2 NVMe technology and with 500GB of storage capacity, its over twice the size of the drive used in our Entry Photography PC.

 

The money has been carefully spent on the components which offer the biggest performance boost and bang for buck for the amateur photographer. Anyone undertaking more heavy duty image processing tasks would be better off looking at our higher end models.

 

This system is perfectly capable of running Adobe Photoshop CC and Adobe Photoshop Lightroom CC applications but the image file sizes should be kept to a small size, ideally below 200MB when in memory. Users should avoid complex transformations and multiple layers.

 

Modern commercial image processing software requires a minimum of 16GB of memory, and you will need plenty of fast storage to hold your image catalogue. This is a budget system which has 16GB of memory.

 

The processor is an AMD Ryzen 5 5600G offering six cores and a 3.9GHz frequency with 4.4GHz Turbo. The performance isn’t at all bad given the low price point as Photoshop benefits mainly from increases in processor frequency rather than multiple processor cores.  The performance is very similar to the Intel i7-9700k which was the fastest CPU for photo editing only 18 months ago.
