Photoshop Performance

My 7-year old laptop finally kicked the bucket and I’ve been looking into Framework for a while. Now that I’m actually in need of a laptop, I’ve ordered one.

As a professional photographer, I use photoshop a LOT, usually dealing with raw format images of 45 megapixels. My friend who is also a photographer told me that he’s worked on other laptops with similar specs and said that it was very sluggish.

I was wondering if there’s anyone here with experience or insight as to how Framework would handle Photoshop in regular use, or if I should just try for something else? Important note: I travel a LOT and an external GPU is not really an option for me. I’m limited on space when I’m on the road.

Maybe unhelpful since I’m using the ancient Photoshop CS6 with 18MP raw files, but editing is smooth. Brushes, clone stamping, filters, adjustments, edit previewing etc. all work fine.
