Computer upgrade for LR and possibly Topaz


Senior Member
I've had the RAM upgrade for over a month now. It has not substantially increased the speed of LR, but it has cured the issue with the intermittent running extremely slowly and locking up. I think I can live with it at this point, but when I next have to replace this computer, I will probably upgrade to at least an i7 and look at the graphics as well.
I have an i7, 16GB RAM, integrated Intel UHD graphics 630, and I can run multiple programs at the same time eg Lightroom, Topaz Denoise, Skylum Luminar all at the same time without any issues and performs tasks in a couple of seconds. Prior to upgrading my pc I had similar issues as yourself with running slowly and locking up in LR.
