I am trying to get an idea of what is the best configuration to batch process raw images faster. It would be an enormous help if DXO creates and external utility to benchmark your computer using a default raw file from any digital camera using default configuration that can be run on every computer. Then you could test your computer and see how is compared to other systems. AMD vs Intel or PC vs MAC. Or even which graphic card is the best for RAW.

Benchmarks are always a mixed bag. In order to compare the same kind of fruit, we’d have to exactly specify what is going on during the test, which make benchmark somehow indifferent to real-life situations, where you might have other processes running in the background, distorting the results.

Best thing you can do is have an ssd for processing images. The OS has to write to disk, no matter how much ram you have so a platter will degrade your speed. I use an ssd for working on images and then once done transfer them to the disc for storage.
Plenty of ram on multiple channels. e.g. a PC with 4 sticks instead of 2 or 1 which allows the OS to address multiple sticks at the same time.
Have the next processor up from specs and the graphics card. Make sure they have good cache ram on board as that is the first port of call for process storage and data handling.
Bench marking is a bit of a crap shoot when it comes to results, but the above will help with most tasks, not just raw processing.
