High end performance for the professional photographer

Updated 15/01/2022 to the new Intel 12 th Generation platform.  To return to the old SKU, click this link – 2021 Version High End Photography PC


Users of high end photography systems demand a lot of performance from their PC. This system steps up the performance by including the Intel Core i7-12700KF processor which offers a high clock speed and 12 processor cores for high performance in multi-thread applications or when running multiple applications at once. The system also includes a step up in graphics performance to the Quadro T1000 professional workstation graphics card.  Supports 10-bit colour for high level of detail and colour precision. The 500GB Samsung 980 primary SSD offers better performance than the 240GB and 256GB models as well as offering increased capacity. We also upgraded to an 8TB storage drive.


The CPU cooler used with this system is the high performance Corsair H100x liquid cooler.  This cooler allows your CPU to run at its maximum performance for extended periods of time. Noise is also kept to a low level as the fans spin at a relatively slow speed and are an excellent low noise design.


The Be Quiet! Pure Base 600 chassis offers excellent quality and upgradability in a professional workstation product with low noise fans designed to keep your high performance PC cool. The system can accept a total of 6 SATA drives by providing capacity for 3 x 3.5″ drives and 3 x 2.5″ drives. Also, the motherboard we use can support 3 x M.2 high-performance SSDs, in total you can use six storage drives in this system. We have specified the system with a 500GB M.2 NVMe SSD as the primary drive for your OS and program files, a 1TB M.2 NVMe secondary SSD which is ideal for use as your Lightroom catalogue and working ‘scratch’ area to boost performance for your ‘work in progress files’ and also an 8TB hard drive for your full image catalogue. It is also possible to configure a further three 3.5″ or 2.5″ storage drives. To add further storage drives to your PC in the configurator, hit the ‘Add Another’ button to the right-hand side of the primary storage drive header. Alternatively, contact us for a quote with additional storage options.


The system also includes a high performance memory card reader which is compatible with Memory Stick, Compact Flash and SD cards including the latest SDXC and SDHC cards.  Data transfer speed is high and the device also increases the quantity of available USB ports to the front of the PC as it provides an additional 4 x USB 3.0 ports and a further 2 x USB charging ports.


We have designed the system around the new 12th Generation Intel processor. These processors offer a leap in performance per clock over the previous generation by improving efficiency across the entire range. Performance increases will depend on the software you are using, but there will be greater benefits in more complex tasks. Video editing also benefits hugely as processor core count increases, so this will be a welcome benefit to those undertaking some video work as well.


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 system has 32GB of memory which is ideal for handling large images with multiple layers. The 32GB of memory also enables high-resolution video editing to be undertaken on this system.


Applications like Photoshop don’t continue to perform better and better with additional cores, so we don’t recommend installing processors with more than 6 cores solely for Photoshop use but when running other background applications such as email and web browsers, additional cores can be useful. It is essential to choose a processor with a high clock frequency as the processor frequency has more of an impact on performance than the core count. We have chosen the i7-12700KF processor for this system, it’s a twelve-core processor with a 3.6GHz base frequency but with a turbo clock speed of 5.0GHz and is capable of running all day under heavy workloads. Processor turbo speeds come into effect for a limited number of the cores when the system is under heavy load. As Adobe Photoshop CC and Adobe Lightroom CC can be particularly heavy on just 1 or 2 cores, the system will benefit from the higher turbo frequency.
