2020 iMac 5K: Convert RAW Files to JPEG With Adobe Camera Raw (Nikon D850)

re: recommended Macs for photographers and videographers
re: 2020 iMac 5K: Recommended Models and Accessories.

MPG tested the 2020 iMac 5K 3.6 GHz Intel Core i9 10-core / 128GB / 2TB / Radeon 5700. Smart move: buy with 8GB memory, then add 64GB or 128GB OWC memory to save a ton on memory cost (same memory as 2019 iMac 5K).

Please buy your gear at B&H Photo and OWC/MacSales.com using any link from this site.

About

2020 iMac 5K

This test is a real-world task relevant to Adobe Photoshop and Lightroom: batch convert raw files to JPEG.

Disk I/O is not a significant factor, the files being small relative to the workload, and on the fast internal SSD.

Nikon D850 raw files are compressed, and may reduce parallelism.

CPU cores rock on the 2019 Mac Pro.

The 2020 iMac 5K is slower than the 2019 iMac 5K! The difference in Photoshop version and macOS version might account for it.
