View Full Version : Photoshop Speed Test

8th December 2007, 05:59 PM

Whilst Browsing macrumors i saw this real world photoshop speed test that seemed to have overwhelming popularity on Macrumors. As i understand it, this test is essentially testing how fast your mac can edit a default picture in a certain way.

As i am unfortunately Mac-less at the moment (yes, i am using a windows at this point)
I am unable to participate as my windows does not have photoshop i do not have a time, but if people want to look into this and post their scores i think it should provide an interesting idea at who has the 'ultimate' photoshop machine.

Cheers in advance

When I did this test a year or so ago on an eMac 1.42 with 1.5gb of ram it took 4 mins 15seconds.

On my new/old G5 1.9GHz iMac with 2.5GB of RAM the time was...

1 minute 55 seconds and I've gotta be pleased with that especially since that's not a million miles away from a 2.7 quad core g5.

Note having memory set to 70% or 100% made no difference, same with cache level or if I used an external scratch disk but History States made a big difference.

1 history state 1:55"
20 history states 2:55"
