MPG tested the Apple 16.2" MacBook Pro with M2 Max Chip Z1740017Z, maxed-out excepting 4TB SSD.
Consult with Lloyd to design a complete system for photography or similar including backup and data safety.
This test is as real world as it gets, one that I (Lloyd) do frequently for generating lens rendering aperture series, such as for this lens comparison. It is a time-consuming and work-stopping task, so performance gains are very welcome. It is a workflow that might have limited significance for the workflow of others. Still, if workflow is scripted in Photoshop, it likely applies.
The M1 Max takes 22% longer than the M2 Max.
This being my (Lloyd’s) single most important task in Photoshop, the one that slows my work the most, it’s a bummer for the M2 Max platform, and it was equally poor a year prior.
