Redo for Photoshop CC 14.2 (CC 14.2 Unstable on 2013 Mac Pro)

Bad timing — this morning I woke up to find that Adobe Photoshop CC has been updated to version 14.2. So total redo on all Photoshop benchmarks to be sure the number reflect the current version. Version number in graphs should read “v14.2” for the latest results.

The good news is it might address some Filter menu bugs (dimmed, unavailable). The bad news it now crashes in the Shake Reduction and Lens Correction filter 100% of the time (which is good news in that a fix should be easy). But it means that I have to drop it out of my sharpening test suite.

Update: crashes seemed to be confined to the 2013 Mac Pro and do not occur on the 2010 Mac Pro; maybe it is a GPU support code issue.

Could it be related to the new D500 GPUs with 3GB VRAM each?

Update 2: also crashes in Lens Correction filter (maybe others too). Photoshop CC 14.2 appears to be an unstable release to be avoided by 2013 Mac Pro users.

Update 3: CONFIRMED—this is a GPU-related bug specific to the 2013 Mac Pro. With the GPU disabled on the 2013 Mac pro there are no crashes. No crashes either way with 2010 Mac Pro.

Update 4: all benchmarks now updated to Photoshop CC 14.2. A few things had to be removed due to the crashes.
