2020 iMac 5K: Convert RAW Files to JPEG With Adobe Camera Raw (Sony A7R IV)

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.

Raw file conversion to JPEG — 60-megapixel Sony A7R IV raw files

CPU cores rock on the 2019 Mac Pro.

There is no meaningful difference between the 2020 iMac 5K and the 2019 iMac 5K, but the 2020 iMac 5K is slower. The difference in Photoshop version and macOS version might account for it.
