    Bit of a long shot but is anyone using a 2017 MBP with DXOptics Pro?

    Geekbench, etc scores are pointless to me, real world numbers matter more - and this is the biggest drain of my existing kit.
    A 5 year old i7, 8GB RAM Win10PC and my 3 year old rMBP i5, 8GB ram (both SSD) are comparable in that it roughly takes a minute to export a photo with Prime on. Scale this to 60-100 photos on a regular basis and it's getting on my nerves.
    The question is, is one of the high end stock i7/16 15" providing a big enough speed increase for me to stump up a lot of cash? I'd be looking to get 60 photos exported down from an hour to under 10 minutes, if not less.

    One 6000x4000 RAW photo conversion to full res JPEG takes under 10 seconds in Canon DPP, if I had to hazard a guess, it would be 6-7. This is on 2016 13" MBP with Touch Bar - the 2.9 GHz i5 model. Do not know about 2017 and DXO since I am just a hobbyist using DPP to export some photos to JPEG after correction, but sensitive to time taken for the fact.

    I'd love to know as well. I use DXO, Lightroom and Hasselblad Phocus to convert Nikon, Leica and Hasselblad raw files to JPEG or TIFF depending on the camera in use and the clients needs and export times are always the area I want to see improved most, thumbnail render times second.

    In fact, I see so little real world improvements in this regard that I tend to not upgrade hardware as frequent as I used to, I'm using a late 2013 Retina 13" 2.8ghz and a built 2012 MacPro 3.46ghz.

    I am considering going with the new 15" maxed out but need more than tech-head centric bench scores, they really have never told me much.

    Anyone out there in the real world?

    I just timed a RAW to full-sized JPEG export in Lightroom using a 5472 x 3648 Canon 1DX Mark II RAW file. It took 3.8 seconds on my 2017 13" TB i7 with 16 GB RAM. I don't use DXO, but I know that Lightroom isn't particularly optimized to use the GPU on the MBP; I think the program uses it only in the Develop module.

    Interesting. I just did my 24MP D750 and it took 5.5 seconds on my 2013 Retina 13" using lightroom, 16GB of ram. If I can find a 1DX-2 CR2 file online I might see what that yields but by the looks of it, not much has changed since 2013.
