Results: Photoshop Filters
The 2019 MacBook Pro takes from 29% for 'Varius' to 9% longer for 'Noise', depending on the filter. Some of the filters use mostly CPU cores, others use the GPU.
In general, the 2019 MacBook Pro lags only by about 15%, with the Smart Sharpen filter taking only 12% longer.
On balance, the perceived difference will be just noticeable—not particularly significant for most users.
