MPG tested the Apple Mac Pro with M2 Ultra #Z171000US 192GB/4TB/60GPU. 76 GPU/8TB SSD are options.
Consult with Lloyd to design a complete system for photography or similar including backup and data safety.
This test is as real world as it gets, one that I (Lloyd) do frequently for generating lens rendering aperture series, such as for this lens comparison. It is a time-consuming and work-stopping task, so performance gains are very welcome. It is a workflow that might have limited significance for the workflow of others. Still, if workflow is scripted in Photoshop, it likely applies.
This being my (Lloyd’s) single most important task in Photoshop, the one that slows my work the most, it’s a bummer for the M1 Max and M2 Ultra platforms, and it was equally poor a year prior.
