Mac Pro Westmere RAW-file Processing with Nikon Capture NX2
Nikon Capture NX2 2.2.4 — convert to 16-bit uncompressed TIF
The perennial performance sluggard in the RAW-file conversion space, Nikon Capture NX2 2.2.4 is unbearable slow. Version 2.2.5 is not any better.
The 12-core model is slower than the 6-core model, no surprise given the thread-contention problems in Capture NX2.
Marginal CPU core usage, very “spiky”, so a fast CPU clock speed is most important.
