2019 Mac Pro

Discussion

This set of tests with these Photoshop filters gives a general view of performance across a variety of tasks.

Results: Photoshop Filters

Tests performed on a 51-megapixel 16-bit image.

The 2019 Mac Pro with the AMD Radeon Pro 580X is generally slower than the 2019 iMac 5K with the AMD Radeon Pro Vega 48..

Since some of these tasks use the GPU and the AMD Radeon Pro 580X GPU in the 2019 Mac Pro always underperforms the AMD Radeon Pro Vega 48 in the 2019 iMac 5K, it is no surprise that the iMac 5K wins out.

  • Lens Corrections uses the GPU
  • Pixellate (all items in the Pixellate menu) uses the CPU.
  • Noise uses CPU only.
  • Blur Gallery uses the CPU.
  • Various {Oil Paint, Emboss, Liquify} uses the GPU for Oil Paint, CPU for Liquify, CPU for Emboss.
  • Distort uses uses the CPU.
  • Smart Sharpen {Sharpen Edges, Smart Sharpen, Unsharp Mask} uses the GPU for Smart Sharpen, CPU for Sharpen Edges and Unsharp Mask.
