2013 Mac Pro 3.3 GHz 8-core, 64GB, 1TB SSD, D700

Photoshop CC: assemble panorama
This test assembles a large panorama in Photoshop using theand commands, followed by image resizing to 75% of original.
The 2013 Mac Pro easily outperforms due both to its eight CPU cores and its 64GB memory: the iMac with its 4 cores and 32GB memory limit is forced to spend time swapping to disk.
