Re: i7 3770 vs 3930 for Lightroom 4

There was a recent thread on FM that talked about LR performance relative to current hardware. The takeaway for you might be this quote:

There is nothing in my tests that suggest a 6 core chip is worth buying unless you do really big batch processing and exports.

FWIW, I'm running a 3770K and it's quite sufficient. The frustrating thing is that other users with similar hardware are seeing unacceptable lags. I wouldn't count on help from Adobe; if they had a clue they would have patched it by now.
