  • Replied in 7500 vs 7600
    Yes. You are correct.
  • These observations have been replicated by others in internet land, and they make sense because PC reviews of the 7700K vs the 7600K and 7600 have confirmed the 7700K runs very hot and the 7600 ...
  • First got the iMac Core i7-7700K. Fast, but I noticed the temps would spike high really quickly under any sort of heavy load. For surfing and stuff like that it was fine, and light image editing ...
  • No it doesn't most likely. If you had High Sierra 10.13, you'd know, because High Sierra is not even out yet. It's only in beta, and a very early beta at that so not recommended at this time. You ...
  • As mentioned by others, Photos in High Sierra adds quite a few features, so I wouldn't make a final decision until High Sierra is out.
  • Interesting. It almost makes me wonder if Apple is buying him out for Photos in HIgh Sierra. https://petapixel.com/2017/06/06/apple-adds-advanced-editing-features-photos-app-macos-high-sierra/
  • The hurry in my case is that I won't be able to load any of my iOS 11 iPhone pictures or videos onto the Mac and view them with the usual Apple software. Live photos when imported through Image ...
  • I just installed iOS 11 on my iPhone 7 Plus, and now my recorded videos are h.265 HEVC and my photos are HEIC images, with Live Photos getting paired with 1080p h.265 HEVC. The HEIC images are ...
  • Nah, no Ryzen any time soon. Ryzen has no hardware HEVC decode support. Also, Intel is going 6-core for mainstream desktop CPUs next year. Expect to see 6-core iMacs (non-Pro) at the next refresh. ...
  • Replied in Multi-threading?
    Interesting. I note that with Lightroom performance reviews, they say that Lightroom doesn't have the greatest multi-threading for most actions. On my iMac i7-7700K however, I notice in Photos that ...
  • Sierra seems to need some more RAM than Yosemite. 4 GB on Sierra is a bit tight, even with RAM compression. That said, I'd still do the upgrade, because of everything else. It should be noted that ...
  • Single-thread speeds of the i7-7700K are about 25% faster than the i5-7500. There is about a 20% clock speed increase, but the 7700K also has a larger cache. Multi-thread speeds of the i7-7700K are ...
  • 8 GB is kind of limiting. I would suggest 16 GB from a third party. That's what I did. And definitely get the SSD. I went with a 1 TB SSD myself. I figure 1 TB will last me a few years, and then I ...
  • Photos user here. I have Lightroom 5, but I just never got around to learning it. Photos seems so easy. The photo management is very well suited for individuals and their families, with facial ...
  • You don't want to use the LG 5K display with your iMac?
  • Errr... OWC themselves confirmed 32 GB works. You need to be running 64-bit OS X though. http://blog.macsales.com/17059-late-2009-core-i5-i7-imacs-owc-maxram-certified-to-32gb-of-memory They even ...
  • Yes, it's moving in the right direction, but it's not there yet IMO. I have two iPad Air 2s, but ordered a new MacBook m3. It arrives tomorrow, yay! :) I just wish it had an wide colour gamut ...
