Last updated 2010-05-13 - Send Feedback
Related: Macs, software, Mac Pro, Photoshop

These are diglloyd benchmarks testing the speed of Photoshop on various jobs of various sizes.

Analysis

diglloydSpeed1 takes 8% longer with the 8-core. Both machines has 24GB.

diglloydMedium takes 14% longer with the 8-core. Both machines has 24GB.

diglloydHuge is a “best possible”: the huge advantage of the 8-core is due to having 64GB of memory, versus 32GB for the quad-core. It shows clearly that for really huge jobs, the 8 core machine is far preferable, simply because up to 64GB of memory can be installed.

Time in seconds, lower is faster.
