Product Description

A very high performance PC for the professional photographer

This system has been designed from the ground up to offer outstanding performance in Adobe Photoshop CC and Adobe Photoshop Lightroom CC applications and also perform very well in video editing tasks too. We’ve taken the already blistering performance of the Professional Photography PC and added more storage and a higher performance graphics card.  This configuration helps the computer cope better with some GPU acceleration of effects on enormous image sizes. Little else can be gained regarding raw system performance as the components used in this build represent the pinnacle of current technology.

 

The PC retains the Be Quiet Dark Base 900 chassis from the Professional system as it offers excellent potential for installing additional drives and is exceptionally well built. The system can accept a total of 6 SATA drives (your optical drive counts as one) by providing capacity for 6 in any combination of 3.5″ or 2.5″ drives. We also retain the superb Gigabyte Z390 AORUS Master motherboard as it supports 3 x M.2 high-performance SSDs and offers excellent connectivity. In total, you can use six storage drives in this system including the optical drive. This computer is installed with a 512GB Samsung 970 PRO M.2 NVMe SSD as the primary drive for your OS and program files. The second 2TB Samsung 960 PRO M.2 NVMe SSD is ideal for use as your Lightroom catalogue and the working ‘scratch’ area to boost performance for your ‘work in progress files’.  Finally, 2 x SEAGATE BarraCud Pro 12TB hard drives can house your full image catalogue: (24/7 rated, 5 years warranty, 300TB/year workload rating) – Register for 2yrs FREE Data Recovery on www.seagate.com/register. It is also possible to configure a further two 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.

 

This system uses the Intel Core i9-9900K which is an 9th Generation Intel processor. These processors offer a leap in performance over the 7th and 8th generation processors by providing more processor cores and higher clock speed. The i9-9900K is as good as it gets for Photoshop and Lightroom use. Video editing also benefits from the inclusion of the i9-9900K due to its 8 six physical processor cores and 16 threads, so this will be a welcome benefit to those undertaking some video work as well.

 

This system keeps the 64GB of memory from our professional photography system. This is currently the maximum we can install on an 8th/9th generation system motherboard. 64GB is ideal for handling the largest images with multiple layers. The 64GB of memory also enables high-resolution 4K video editing to be undertaken on this system.
