2013 Mac Pro: Image Sizing with Photozoom Pro
Photozoom Pro offers near perfect CPU core scalability, so it is an intriguing test to pit the 12-core 2010 Mac Pro against the 2013 mode.
Version 5 also has GPU support, and it's important to use the optimization function in the PZP preferences dialog. This dropped the run time by about 20% for the 2013 Mac Pro.
See the test machine configurations.
The 8-core 2013 Mac Pro beats out the 12 core 2010 model by about 25%. Even the 6-core 3.5 GHz beats that 12-core Mac Pro: this is due to the use of the GPUs.
The 2013 12-core Mac Pro shows the best performance, but given the big cost jump to the D700 GPUs and 12 CPU cores, a ~6% reduction in runtime is a marginal gain as compared to the 8-core 3.3 GHz with D500 GPUs.
