2018 Mac mini: diglloyd Adobe Photoshop Benchmarks

MPG tested the 2018 Mac mini 15-inch 3.2 GHz 64GB 1TB UHD630.

2018 Mac mini

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 where 32GB in a laptop shines—see the results. By comparison, the late 2017 MacBook Pro was a performance disappointment, turning in inferior numbers to its predecessor and was also limited to 16GB—a major inhibitor of performance.

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 2018 Mac mini handily beats the 2017 iMac 5K, the latter taking 22% longer.

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.

The 2018 Mac mini handily beats the 2017 iMac 5K, the latter taking 23% longer.

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.

The 2018 Mac mini handily beats the 2017 iMac 5K, the latter taking 18% longer.

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.

The 2018 Mac mini handily beats the 2017 iMac 5K, the latter taking 24% longer. This might involve improved SSD speed, since disk I/O comes into play as memory becomes insufficient. Repeated tests all show a consistently high superiority for the 2018 Mac mini.
