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 uses a newer generation core.  In terms of raw compute performance, its around 15% ahead of the AMD 4600G system. It’s still a value focused system, but with the 16GB RAM and 1TB 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 DS3H motherboard.  Its higher performance than the A520M 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 a higher performance model than used on the entry model.  It uses the high performance M.2 NVMe technology and with 1TB of storage capacity.

 

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.
