  • I'm looking at getting one, as the prices continue to go lower and lower it becomes easier to justify it as an even more portable option VS my EM10 mkII. Do you have a small case for it? The one ...
  • The Sigma 30 is a very sharp and bright lens, the only issues I've found with it is that it'll just got focus compared to the Olympus 25 f1.8 or Panasonic 25 f1.7 I used to own, and it's much, ...
  • On mobile the i5's have had HT since 8th gen on all chips.  And the dual cores had it going back further.
  • Thanks for the info, and for Tom_N I use everymac to get the info but looks like they take a little time to update the database.  The new Air's are up but not the MBP 13's https://everymac.com/syst ...
  • Have the CPU model numbers come out yet? I haven't been able to find them, but the other big thing here is the GPU and which i5 are they using? All fall under "IRIS Plus" but the higher end "G7" ...
  • I don't know about passmark but it's matching Intel chips running overclocked at double the power consumption or more. So in terms of cooling you'll need some but nothing too crazy. There are ...
  • A few additional things. The air actually loses on the 10th gen vs 8th gen i5 in terms of the CPU. There are 2 ways that this happens, in terms of single threaded performance for short bursts they ...
  • Replied in Deja Vu
    If you bought it I mean a new computer is a new computer and will last you longer but a lot of people are running all those programs on systems a good bit slower than your current one so I would ...
  • And if you think the power supply is the issue you could run stress tests. https://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/stress-test-cpu-pc-guide,5461.html Those synthetic loads will hit your CPU/GPU harder ...
  • I wouldn't worry about 32GB of RAM not being available on laptops stock. I'd just YouTube whatever model you're looking at because it's very easy on some usually taking just a few screws and it's ...
  • I've been using the Surface Pro 6 i5 and do some editing on it. One of the big differences is the i5 is passively cooled VS the i7 which has a fan and you definitely can tell it if you process a ...
  • It actually does pretty well for today's games, especially with just a GTX 1660 Super as long as you're only trying for 60 FPS. And it can do a lot higher on older/e-sports ones. https://www.youtub ...
  • That's a lot of money to get it looked at. I would try a fresh install of Windows in case there's something wrong with the OS causing all the issues. And your 7200 RPM hard drive is a bottleneck ...
  • Multiple CPUs is the big thing but even that is only for some Xeons. I had a Woodcrest like the original MacPro's but didn't get too into the CPU's back then. I know by the time of my next ...
  • Yup, and it'll be an even worse value proposition when you can get the new Ryzen 3 3000 series/10th gen i3 both for 100-150 with a quad core that'll be faster than that 8 core Xeon CPU which will ...
  • It used to be a solid bet 4 years ago when consumer chips topped out at a quad core. But for context I bought an HP Z420 with a E5-1650 V2 which is only slightly slower than that computer for 350. ...
  • Oh I meant the new AMD laptop processors.  I was just bringing up the Desktop link because they are the same architectures so while not an apples to apples comparison it gives an idea of what LR ...
  • I wouldn't worry too much about the i9 in this case. It's when your importing thousands of photos that the power of that really comes through. Or if you can wait a bit the i7's that were just ...
  • This.  Also I'd look to see if there's any bottlenecking if you used a SATA SSD for data.  You'd still want a 250-500GB NVME for the OS/scratch disk but this could give you more storage and also ...
  • Minus the sensor stabilization which is one thing that I wish it had.  Plus having those features available in the viewfinder can be a big help for certain types of shooting. But the big question ...
