I ordered a new Alienware Area-51 R5. I had to order a dell product because of corporate.
Intel i9 7980xe (18core)
GTX 1080ti 11gb
64GB 2933mz ram
1TB M.2 PCI SSD
1TB sata SSD
I did a 2,000 photo project last week no problem. I have not been paying to close attention to times as I start them at the end of the day when crews get back in the office. I did a 120 photo project in about 30m when I first got the tower just to test.
I’m running my largest project ever on it right now, to soon to tell how it will turn out but step 1 just finished. 4300 photos from a phantom 4 pro 20mp images.
I found the 2 links below super helpful when choosing specs. I’m not sure who to thanks on the forum for doing all that A/B testing but it was very helpful.
