Adobe to finally release a major Lightroom Classic performance update

Dpreview reports that Adobe is going to release a major Lightroom Classic performance update soon:

Late last week, Adobe told DPReview that it has a significant Lightroom Classic performance update in the works. The update—which is "coming soon"—is supposed to improve performance across the board for anybody using a multi-core machine with at least 12GB of RAM. Or, in Adobe's own words:

In this upcoming Lightroom Classic 7.2 release, we were able to make significant strides with our partners at Intel on addressing key performance issues. We have optimized CPU and memory usage so that performance will scale better across multiple cores on computers with at least 12 GB of RAM.

Adobe claims the update will result in:

  • Faster import and preview generation

  • Faster walking of images in the Loupe View

  • Faster rendering of adjustments in Develop

  • Faster batch merge operations of HDR/Panos

  • Faster export
