Meets Adobe reccomendation for low end (8 GB also supported, but poorly). Eventually this may be too low. If you have a desktop, consider increasing.

Graphics Processor Info:
DirectX: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 6GB (27.21.14.5671)

So v456.72, this is old, approaching 3-1/2 years old, current at NVIDIA is v551.23, consider updating, when you do, select Studio driver, and select custom install type as to force a clean install. This can effect develop module performance.

So:

  • catalog and photos on D drive, 1TB capacity, 522GB free (so much better than 20% and room for and it an for images) and it is a NVME (fast)
  • Camera RAW CACHE on C drive, and set to 30GB (not the awful 5GB default) also a NVME

 

Only consideration on that would (for a Windows computer) to relocate the camera RAW CACHE to a drive not containing the Windows Paging file, typically on C (Camera RAW CACHE and Paging file could be competing in terms of read/wrights). This may present a small performance

NVIDIA 1060, getting very old. may or may not support newer LrC features. Would expect AI Denoise to be very slow.

 

6GB VRAM, Ok, but if you get a new GPU look for at least 8GB, higher is better.

 

Summary, update that GPU driver.

I can upvote that. I've just installed Capture One, and oh boy, how fast that thing works! Switching photos - instantenous. Sliding any slider - instant smooth visual update.

I've editing small RAW files - 22 mb.

Having very powerful Ryzen 5800X3D with GeForce 4070 Ti and 32 GB ram and NVME drive, Lightroom works more or less the same as on 5 years old machine. From what I see Lightroom Classic never speeds up, no matter what hardware update I made. It's even worse - after updating to Windows 11 LRC got much slower.

What is slow?

* Switching photos in Develop mode (takes 1 - 2 seconds to update the UI after selecting other photo, more when the photo has adjustments and masks. Try clicking few photos in sequence fast, UI will just go berserk for many seconds)

* adjusting any slider - picture update is sloppy, both on GPU and CPU (lately CPU only is much smoother than GPU)

* applying masks

I'm really surprised why LRC slider adjusting is not really 60 fps smooth - on such powerful machines as we have now, changing exposure of 22 mb photo should have no problem with updating even 144 fps. Yet, LRC just likes to be choppy.
