GEFORCE GT 1030 slows down lighroom.

I Run lightroom Classic on a Dell XPS 8500. always latest updates of all software and operating system. I never noticed a problem with the following configuration until the 9 update when everything noticeably slowed down. I discovered that my Nvidia 620 GPU was more than likely the cause of the problem as it did not support DirectX12. Disabling it was better but still not up to previous speed when making adjustments or especially cropping where the boarders lagged the mouse just enough to make it very annoying. I replaced the GPU with  GEFORCE GT1030, not a blazing fast card by any means but with 2 GB of 2GDDR5 memory & DirectX12 support it appears to exceed Lightroom Classic 9 minimum requirements. Lightroom does recognize the GPU and with "use graphics processor" set to "auto" Lightroom says "your system supports basic acceleration" and identifies the card correctly but slows down editing and especially cropping just like the 620. Setting it to "off" restores some speed. I ran benchmark tests on the GPU and it is working exactly up to spec. so what is the truth about GPU cards and Lightroom Classic? Do you really need a high-end gaming card to make a difference? Are budget cards that do meet requirements a waste of money? Running “Enhance Details” on a single NEF file took about 35 seconds set to "Auto”, "Custom" or “off.” 

Here is the configuration of my computer.

Thank you

You're better off leaving the GPU off for Lightroom. The graphics acceleration seems to make a bigger difference if you're using a 4K monitor or higher resolution. For standard 1080p it seems to be better with the graphics acceleration off.

As you have seen for yourself.

Budget cards are not a waste of money - you get what you pay for. Unless you do a lot of video editing then the card you have chosen is fine! Video editing does require a high performance card though - especially if you do a lot.

Thanks for the quick response. I suspected as much. Thing is, I will probably replace this PC within 2 years so would not have replaced the GPU except that I wanted to be LR compliant to speed things up a bit. Adobe needs to be clearer about GPU recommendations and possible performance gains.

Lots of good info on the System Information, unfortunately a few things missing or hiding in plane site. OS version/build, GPU driver version. Catalog path. Plug-ins.

 

Please share the info over again, this  time as Lightroom reports it. In Lightroom click on Help, then System Information, then Copy, and paste into a reply.

 

Please share that info from first line down to just past plug-in info, The stuff after plug-in info a bit too techno for most of us.

When you installed your new GPU driver, did you do a clean install? This involves the install utility, it involves allowing it to completly remove the old driver, and install a new one.

 

As you are going from NVIDIA to NVIDIA this can be accomplished during the install (via custom install and options)

Thanks David,

I tried multiple clean installs with drivers from both NVIDIA and from GIGABIT ( AORUS ENGINE) Even reinstalled the physicial card and replaced the HDMI cable. Always the same results.

HDMI? no Display Port? Ok.

 

Might not help performance, but see: https://fstoppers.com/education/one-driver-option-could-be-ruining-your-monitors-accuracy-340911

Odd, thought that card had DP 1.42, HDMI 2.0b, and Single Link-DVI. Mind you, if your Monitor does not have Display port, then the display port connection on the card is of no use.

 

Would think HDMI would work better than DVI

Perhaps a sub set of the card.
