not enough posts at the moment... if I get enough posts, I shall come back... of course, that means that I will have to clean my desk up... just imagine a trash can, next to a TV... and a UPS under the desk... (yes... Chroma... lights wasted under the desk... I know!)
I don't think that I could write a better article myself... but if anyone wants me to re-write/re-phrase his post, I am more than happy to re-live the trauma (warning: lots of coffee was consumed in the finding of his post!!).
Will update with benchmarks when I can... right now I need to let the bruising heal from bouncing my head off my desk heal a little before I can run anything on this new-found beast! lol
From the minimal testing I have performed so far... CaptureOne is MUCH more responsive now, which is great for those editing moments that you think it has applied the curves... so you tweak it some more, and then discover that you have tweaked it too far... not enough... too far... ugh... no more! Will also be testing PhotoShop, so hopefully that will be seeing a marked improvement, especially for panoramic stitches or focus stacks.
