Photoshop CS6 Performance — diglloydSpeed1

Last updated November 03, 2012 - Send Feedback

2012 Mac Mini 2.3 GHz quad-core, 16GB OWC memory, 240GB OWC Extreme Pro 6G SSD.

The diglloydSpeed1 benchmark is an in-memory test that easily fits in 8GB, so it’s a pure speed test which does not involve disk I/O.

Estimated 2.6 GHz time is computed as the ratio of clock speeds of 2.3 / 2.6 = ~13%; the 2.6 GHz MacMini will be faster by some amount than the 2.3 GHz model, but perhaps not the full 13%.

These are revised results from the first post— Apple’s infuriating Spotlight indexing screwed up the very first test (the OWC 240GB 6G SSD results). All retested and reverified here with Spotlight disabled.
