2019 MacBook Pro 16-inch

Introduction

These four benchmarks test the speed of Photoshop with different size workloads.

The amount of memory has a major influence on the diglloydLarge and diglloydHuge tests, and that is why 64GB in the 2019 MacBook Pro is such a breakthrough compared to prior models.

No sign of thermal throttling was observed in the 2019 MacBook Pro in these tests, unlike prior models. That keeps the 2019 MBP performing like a fast desktop computer.

2019 Apple MacBook Pro with 16" Display: the Single Computer Solution At Last

Fast and cost effective way to backup!

Results: diglloydSpeed1

The diglloyd Speed1 benchmark uses a mix of the most commonly used Photoshop operations with a file size that allows everything to stay in memory. Hence it accurately represents what one might expect in everyday use of Adobe Photoshop CC. Specialty operations such as Liquify and other GPU-intensive tasks are just that—specialty, and are not included in this suite.

The 2019 MacBook Pro kicks impresses here, taking only 15% longer than the top-end maxed-out 2019 iMac 5K.

Results: diglloydMedium

The diglloyd Medium benchmark uses a mix of the core Photoshop operations with a moderately larger file size that exceeds what most users are likely to use, taking about 15GB of memory usage in Photoshop. This puts it right on the edge of what a Mac with 16GB of memory can manage, which is no sweat for a 64GB laptop.

Again, the 2019 MacBook Pro takes only 15% longer than top-end maxed-out 2019 iMac 5K .

diglloydMedium Photoshop benchmark for 2019 MacBook Pro vs 2019 iMac 5K

Results: diglloydLarge

The diglloyd Large Photoshop benchmark uses a mix of the core Photoshop operations with a large file size that exceeds what most users are likely to use, using about 30GB of memory in Photoshop.

Again, the 2019 MacBook Pro takes only 16% longer than top-end maxed-out 2019 iMac 5K.

diglloydLarge Photoshop benchmark for 2019 MacBook Pro vs 2019 iMac 5K

Results: diglloydHuge

The diglloyd Huge benchmark uses a mix of the core Photoshop operations with a file size that requires about 56GB of memory usage in Photoshop, far beyond what most users are likely to encounter.

Here, the 2019 MacBook Pro suffers versus the top-end maxed-out 2019 iMac 5K with 128GB in that the 64GB memory of the MBP is not quite enough. Still, the MBP acquits itself admirably given that disadvantage, taking only 33% longer.

Most users will never deal with files this large, so unless you do, this benchmark is immaterial.
