B&H Photo loaned MPG the latest top-end MacBook with 1.3 GHz processor, 8GB memory, 512GB PCIe flash drive along with a USB-C to USB adapter (even better: Apple USB-C Digital AV Multiport Adapter and most users will want both).

This test is as real world as it gets, one that your author does day in and day out for generating lens rendering aperture series.

Such a test is of great practical value to ask just how much difference the combination of faster SSD, faster CPU and/or faster GPU makes—benchmarks are of modest merit in the context of a particular workflow, which can be influenced by many factors.

Remarkably, for this real-world task, the 2015 MacBook takes only 1.9X as long as the top of the line MacBook Pro Retina. But in truth that is mostly because Photoshop CC 2015 does a poor job of using all the CPU cores. Still, that’s the point—how a real world task actually runs in the real world.

Photoshop CC 2015 Performance Preferences at Memory Usage = 70%, Graphics Processor = Advanced, History=30/Cache Levels=4/Tile size = 1024K.

Real-world (daily task) in Photoshop: creating a dozen size variants from twenty-eight 36 megapixel images
