How Much is the GPU used for Raw File Conversion in Adobe Camera Raw?

See my recommended Macs for photographers and similar higher-end users. Contact Lloyd for consulting on choosing and configuring a system, backup and fault tolerance, etc.

Adobe Camera Raw raw conversion is a pure CPU operation for all six digital camera raw file types I tried and therefore presumably all raw file types.

In other words, a faster GPU has zero benefit for raw file conversion in Adobe Camera Raw (Photoshop and Lightroom).

Get the Mac Lloyd recommends for most photographers, then adding 64GB or 128GB OWC memory.
