In terms of editing power, which throttles computers the most, RAM or the processor?

An inadequate RAM will bottleneck the work of the processor
but enough will support its speed and power.

The processor is the driving force and the RAW its tool.

Thank you for your question. Actually, If you are a photographer and confuse which is works so much. I will say Processor but you should buy 8th Gen Intel® Core™ processors with Intel® Optane™. Then Get it a good performance.

Do you work for Intel?

Actually, bang for the buck, you want an AMD Ryzen 7 or 9, recent generation, or a Threadripper. If your application can take advantage of threads, then more is better. Lightroom, for example, is very threaded. And you want enough memory to avoid paging to disk, and failing that, you want to use an NVMe drive for best performance (because it's PCIe-connected).

That said, the processor is often the bottleneck. Not always, but it depends upon the application and the use case.

I am agreed at your point. AMD Ryzen 9 Generation is really good. In fact, high power PC is mandatory to use Lightroom software, that's why I bought Core I 8 generation. I find your advice helpful. That is why I would request my PC provider for AMD Ryzen. Thank you, @Garyhook.
