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.

RAW-file Processing Speed — Save as 16-bit TIF

Marginal CPU core usage, very “spiky”, so a fast CPU clock speed is most important.
