About

2023 MacBook Pro M3 Max

This test is a real-world task relevant to Adobe Photoshop and Lightroom: batch convert raw files to JPEG.

Disk I/O is not a significant factor, the files being small relative to the workload, and on the fast internal SSD.

Raw file conversion to JPEG — 150-megapixel PhaseOne IQ4 raw

The 2023 Mac Pro M2 Ultra outperforms everything else.

The 16-inch 2023 MacBook Pro M3 Max takes 25% longer than the Mac Pro. The 14-inch takes longer, perhaps this is related to its maniacal fan noise during this test (eg thermal throttling).

*** See test notes discussing 2019 Mac Pro and 2022 MacBook Pro M2 Max results.
