A big thanks to Other World Computing for loaning MPG the upgraded 2013 Mac Pro! Ditto for B&H Photo for loaning the 6-core Mac Pro. 64GB memory kit for 2013 Mac Pro provided by OWC.

Introduction

This test assembles a large panorama in Photoshop using the Auto Align Layers and Auto Blend Layers commands, followed by image resizing to 75% of original.

Results

See the test machine configurations.

The 8-core 2013 Mac Pro completes the job in ~22% less time than the 12 core 2010 Mac Pro and also beats out its two siblings. The combination of high turbo boost matched to the optimal number of cores wins out.
