2013 Mac Pro: Photoshop CC Performance (diglloydSpeed1, diglloydMedium)
Related: 2013 Mac Pro, gear, Mac Pro, Macs, memory, Photoshop
The diglloydSpeed1 benchmark measures core Photoshop operations, the stuff your author uses every day for professional photography: sharpening, resizing, inverting, etc. It is an in-memory benchmark, so memory limitations or scratch disk speed are not a factor for any reasonably configured machine.
See the test machine configurations.
With four fewer cores and the same base clock speed, the 8-core 2013 Mac Pro shows a consistent ~37% reduction in run time versus the 12-core 2010 Mac Pro Westmere.
Wow! This is core functionality with a very nice speed boost sure to please anyone who spend hours working in Photoshop.
The 6-core 3.5 GHz Mac Pro is only ~7% / 10% slower here than the 8-core 3.33 GHz. This represents a really excellent price performance, and note that— a 3.0 GHz 8 core would likely be beaten by the 6-core.
The 12-core 2013 Mac Pro with D700 GPUs fares respectably well here, but lags both the 6 and 8 core machines.
It’s unclear if the MacBook Pro suffered from its 16GB maximum memory.
High capacity, high-performance fault-tolerant storage for photography and video.
