2016 MacBook Pro: Photoshop Filters

Mac wish list all 2016 MacBook pro models at B&H Photoall 15" Apple MacBook Pro 2016 models • all 13" Apple MacBook Pro 2016 models. MPG gets credit if you buy through those links.

MPG tested a fully-loaded 2016 MacBook Pro with 2TB SSD.

Following up on the other Photoshop and Lightroom tests, this set of tests with these Photoshop filters offers a detailed look as to how the 2016 MacBook Pro fares with respect to its desktop peers and the 2013 MacBook Pro when there are no memory constraints.

The late 2015 iMac 5K and 2013 Mac Pro are leaps and bounds ahead of the laptops.

The 2016 MacBook Pro is unremarkable with most of the tests in comparison to its 2013 and 2015 predecessors, but it does show one worthwhile and substantial improvement: sharpening. The dual core 13" 2.4 GHz 2016 MBP offers feisty performance for many of the tasks, presumably due to its 3.4 GHz turbo boost.

The uninspiring results confirm the mixed results with the diglloyd Photoshop Benchmarks, and the failure of the 2016 MBP to make any meaningful improvement in Adobe Lightroom.

The ability of these laptops to maintain performance under load means that the relative speeds are highly-dependent on workload. The times shown are in some case notably faster for only a few iterations. But each of the laptops begins to slow with more than 20 to 30 seconds of use, the 13" 2016 MacBook Pro being least affected, and taking longer to begin to slow down.

NOTE: Lens Filters test could not be completed on 2 of the 4 machines, and a 3rd crashed several times before completing the test. These are GPU related bugs.

2016 MacBook Pro vs other Macs: Photoshop filters

Test machine notes

All systems are/were the fastest available in their category excepting the 13" 2016 MBP.

Unfortunate twist due to machine availability: the 2015 MacBook Pro and 13" 2016 MacBook Pro were run with macOS 10.12.2. All other Macs with 10.12.1. Retesting the mac Pro did not suggest that the system version matters, but it cannot be ruled out.
