This rig will let you add a GPU later which photoshop can use to accelerate certain things.
I have a laptop with i7 and 512GB Samsung (didn't check which one) and it's very nice. Nicest machine I've ever had.
I'm working on gigantic images in photoshop with pbs format.
Pixels size are around 160.000 X 300.000 and when saved on hard disk is 4.7Gb.
But my laptop takes more than 20 hours to save it on hard disk.
The images also contains a lot of layers, and when i give a command in photoshop it takes 2, 3 even 5 minutes to esecute it.
I stopped to work on it as I decided I need a new desktop for it. But when I will resume my work, i estimateed the images size may increase over 10 Gb.
The Laptop I'm using at the moment is a DELL INSPIRION 15-3521 (Pentium 2127U 1.9 GHz / RAM 4GB / HD 500GB / Win 8.1 64 bit)
This is the new build I decided to buy for working on my project:
Asus X99 STRIX
Corsair Vengeance DDR4 128GB 3000GHz
EVGA GeForce GTX 1060
Noctua NH-D15S Cooler
Samsung 950 Pro NVMe SSD M.2 512 GB
Seagate Barracuda 7200RPM 2 TB
Phanteks Eclipse P400S Midi-Tower Window and Soundproof
Corsair CX750M PSU Modular - 750 Watt
Budget is around 2.800 Euro.
I will use this Desktop only to work on Photoshop Large PBS files (No Gaming / No Cad / No Video / No 3D)
Do you think is a well balanced machine? Would you change something? Can I change something to keep same performance and saving some money?
My goal is to reduce drastically the file saving time which at the moment is more than 20 hours...
Thanks a lot for your suggestions,
