A high performance system for the professional photographer

Updated 11/12/2023.  To return to the old SKU, click this link – 2022 Version Professional Photography PC

 

Our professional photography system has been designed to offer the ultimate in performance, tuned for use in Photoshop, Lightroom, On1 and Topaz AI, but also able to handle video editing and many other productivity and content creation tasks. Each component has been chosen to offer the best performance; we use our many years’ experience to choose the very best performing specification.

 

The Intel Core i9-14900KF CPU is one of the fastest available processors on the market today.  It powers through just about any task you can throw at it and really excels in content creation.  With a high 6GHz turbo clock speed, it offers the best performance in Photoshop and Lightroom whilst its 24 cores and 32 threads help it power through demanding multi-tasking workloads such as video editing too.

 

The Gigabyte Z790 AERO G DDR5 is one of the very best motherboards available and includes just about every possible feature you could ask for.  This motherboard offers better audio quality, higher performance memory and far superior USB connectivity with the inclusion of 2 x USB Type-C ports, one of which supports the super high speed Gen 2×2 standard.  There are also 2 x Thunderbolt 4 and a further 2 Type-A gen 2 ports as well as 9 USB 3.2 Gen 1 ports.  In total, this PC has a staggering 19 USB ports!

 

The inclusion of dual Thunderbolt 4 ports enables the connection of high speed external storage devices.  If you record and store large volumes of data on an external shoot, Thunderbolt 4 storage devices are an ideal storage medium.  The high performance of Thunderbolt 4 has made it a favourite of Apple MAC users so the inclusion of the Thunderbolt connectivity also allows easy transfer of content between camera, MAC and PC.

 

The included NVidia RTX 3060 12GB graphics card helps enable superb GPU acceleration in a growing number of effects. The 12GB video memory is able to cope with large images and offer superb performance.  It also has support for 10-bit colour for high levels of detail and colour precision. Couple this with a 10-bit capable photography monitor for superb colour accuracy and image quality.

 

The system includes the highest performance SSD drives on the market today.  The primary SSD drive is the WD Black SN850X 1TB.  The secondary SSD drive is where you will keep most of your work in progress images so its important to have a high performing drive.  This system also uses this best drive available on the market today for the second SSD, the WD Black SN850X 2TB.  These are the new generation PCIe 4.0 interface NVMe drives with the highest of transfer speeds. The storage drive is the 10TB Seagate Ironwolf Pro offering incredible performance – (24/7 rated, 5 years warranty, 300TB/year workload rating) – Register for 2yrs FREE Data Recovery on www.seagate.com/register.

 

The immensely impressive chassis with huge scope for future expansion of the system is also notable.  Its built using high quality materials and offers excellent cooling for high performance equipment.  Fans are low noise yet extremely efficient.  An excellent choice for the professional photography studio. The Be Quiet! Dark Base 900 chassis provides a professional grade workstation chassis that is clean and uncluttered. Its a true pro chassis made from the best materials and is designed to house the highest performance components and keep them cool. The inside of the chassis side panels are lined with noise isolating materials to reduce noise and vibration. We also equip this chassis with 3 x 140mm SilentWings 3 cooling fans which ensure your PC components are adequately cooled while their low noise design ensures the system remains quiet.
