LrC on AMD EPYC (Milan) performance

Aug 10, 2019
Lightroom Experience
Lightroom Version
Lightroom Version
Lightroom Classic 10.4
Operating System
  1. Other (please note in thread)
Just because when I searched for any info on using Lightroom (Classic) on EPYC and couldn't find anything, I share my experience with you here.

Server: vmware esxi 7.0 host
EPYC 7313P: 16 cores, 32 threads, 3.0 GHz base, 3.7 GHz boost

VM: Windows Server 2022 eval
8 cores
200 GB SSD, also catalog location

Lightroom Classic 10.4
Pictures on TrueNAS VM SMB share (HDD) on same physical server

Performance in LrC is really good. Browsing library, sorting pictures, development module. I do like the fast 100% view when browsing pictures - not used to that speed.
Installation on Windows server proved to be somewhat troublesome: you have to adjust the Internet Explorer(!) security settings even though your default browser is something else and you never use IE. Adobe should really quit using IE for their installer - feels so 1995... After that is sorted though, Lightroom works just fine and really fast.

Further thoughts:
Adding a GPU is planned, but not at current retail prices. If I was to name one, it's be the Radeon W6600 which was just released.
