iMac 5K 4.0 GHz, 32GB, 1TB SSD, AMD Radeon R9 M295X 4GB GDDR5 -versus-
2013 Mac Pro 3.3 GHz 8-core, 64GB, 1TB SSD, D700

The two machines tested here are the fastest possible models for this type of work (as of late 2014).

Photoshop CC: assemble panorama

This test assembles a large panorama in Photoshop using the Auto Align Layers and Auto Blend Layers 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.
