Insurrection Art photographer Russell Millner uses the Performance Plus Photography Computer

High performance for the professional photographer

Updated 16/01/2022 to the new Intel 12 th Generation platform.  To return to the old SKU, click this link – 2021 Version Performance Plus Photography Computer



The performance plus system adds a little extra storage performance and capacity over and above that available on the standard ‘Performance’ system.  Storage is one of the most important aspects of a photography PC. As a professional photographer, your time is money.  A PC that’s faster at editing your images will enable you to achieve more during the working day and spend more time doing the vital editing rather than waiting for your PC to catch up.  If you work in the highest quality settings with high-resolution images, especially if working with high-resolution shots in RAW format to achieve the highest quality; you will appreciate the benefits this system offers.


All our photography PC systems are tuned to the requirements of post-processing large image files.  The Samsung 1TB M.2 970 EVO drive is blisteringly fast, use this for your Lightroom catalogue and work in progress / scratch files.  The system offers excellent performance in Adobe Photoshop CC and Adobe Photoshop Lightroom CC applications.  The 970 EVO drive is one of the fastest SSD drives on the market.


We have also fitted a larger capacity hard drive.  The Seagate Barracuda 6TB storage drive is ideal for storing your image catalogue long term.  For best performance, keep all frequently accessed work and your current ‘work in progress’ on the 1TB SSD.  Use the hard drive to archive away all your completed jobs.  The primary 500GB WD Blue SN570 is also a high performance drive and should be used for your operating system and application files.


The 32GB of RAM is enough for most photographers.  It is best suited to images of 1024MB and under when loaded and in memory.  This gives plenty of scope for additional layers and effects and will allow more than one image to be loaded into memory and worked on at once.


Graphics is courtesy of the NVidia Quadro T1000 professional workstation GPU.  This card has a superb 10-bit colour output with excellent visual quality.  The 4GB of VRAM is plenty for the majority of photography demands.


The Be Quiet! Pure Base 600 chassis offers excellent potential for installing additional drives while keeping your high performance PC components cool and silent.  The system can accept a total of 4 SATA drives by providing capacity for 4 in any combination of 3.5″ drives 2.5″ drives. Also, the motherboard we use can support 2 x M.2 high-performance SSDs so in total you can use six storage drives in this system.  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.


Take a look at our blogs to find out more about how your choice of PC components affects your overall system performance in Photoshop and Lightroom.
