Adobe Lightroom Parallel Processing Speeds Up JPEG Export by 50%
Mar 5, 2013

Seeing is believing. Just sharing the results I got from testing Lightroom's Parallel Processing capability.

Details of test and machine specs:

I exported 1634 RAW files to JPEG in batches of 400 images per operation in 4 operations (indicated in pic below) and timed how long it would take to complete. Note that this is purely an export with no adjustments made to the images. Estimating the time it took me to separate 4 batches of 400 images each to be 1 minute in total, the entire export processes completed in under 15 minutes. Exporting the same number of images in one go took twice as long.

Machine Specs: ASUS Republic of Gamers Maximus V GENE, unlocked Intel Core i7-3770K 4.6GHz liquid cooled by Corsair H80 cooler, Corsair Vengeanceā„¢ DDR3 OC Edition 1866MHz 16GB RAM, Nvidia GeForce GTX 660 2GB, Crucial M4 128GB + 256GB SSDs housed in a SilverStone Fortress FT03 chassis

Samsung i7
