cuz my system is so new, i feel a little unfair doing this test. but here goes

A pair of Opteron 254, 2.8Ghz each.
8x1Gb ECC = 8Gb ram

a couple of SCSI drives.

test 1: 25 secs
test 2: 23 secs
test 3 : 22 secs

the first time i saw my photoshop having to wait for more than 3 secs to get anything done.

PSCS2 can use the whole 3.5Gb of ram. my scratch disk is a 15k 73Gb raid0 drive. which holds my XP's swap file also.

(I wonder how much benefit I'd get from a 64bit OS?)

A lot, same for me.

One of the better results.

All these times seem legit to me. I posted about a year ago on my Dell 8400 P4 3.2gHz 1mb L2 Cache "Prescott". That computer with 768 mb's of ram did the test in 1:54. Not too bad.

Since summer I've been on a Dell 9100 Pentium D 840 Dual Core "Smithfield". I can't believe the difference!!! The Dell 9100 Does the test in 54 Seconds consistently, (IRREGUARDLESS, of how many programs i have running at the same time). This computer has a 74gb raptor HD (a huge benefit for video editing, rendering, looking at tons of thumbnails in bridge) 1.5 GB's of 533mhz pc4200 Ram, 2 dell Widescreen 20" LCD Displays. I don't miss my macs at all really, Photoshop and other Adobe Apps are 150 Times more stable on my Intel WinXP box. NO unexpectedly quits. I have used OS Ten, I'm not just comparing it to os8 and os9 days. when the 'Ish was Really unstable...
What I think is the amazing part about this is that dell sells a slightly newer model than mine, the 9150, fully decked out with a 20" UltraSharp LCD display(2005fpw),160gb hd,1.0GB or ram, win xp, home etc.... for $1399 and you get free shipping. Compare to the $3300 the quad 2.5 costs. And 'The Quad' comes pretty stripped down for $3300. You really need to spend 4200 for a well equipped system.

Just wait till Apple releases its "High End Multi Core" x86 Intel based machine. If my 840 can do the test in 54. 2 840 dual core chips should be able to beat 4 2.5 G5's. By the time apple is ready for these chips im am sure that they will be 3.8ghz or 3.6 and cache sizes keep increasing.




DON'T get me wrong, the quad is the fastest computer I have ever used.

I've ran this test in the Apple Store in CS2 and It always finishes in 23 seconds, no more, no less ever. Thats unreal. You can run the test on a new 2.1ghz Imac and it takes more than 3 minutes. I would love to try rendering some video in after effects on that thing.

ONE very important thing to remember is that the performance increase Dual Core users are seeing is most noticable in photoshop filters. For atleast the past 8 years Photoshop has been multiprocessor aware. The filters take the most advantage of this. Once our OS and Programs are all multi-threaded our multi-core machines will be working even better.



I got my own apple when I was 5 years old, a IIgs special woz edition. So i've seen them all, Even those "Mac Clone" days of power computing,umax,daystar,motorola Circa 1997. I remember in 1997 the Power Computer Power Tower Pro 225mhz 604e was BY FAR the fastest photoshop machine available. It could even take 1 gig of ram back then, now we have an effective 10 ghz (10,000 ghz on our desk, while back in 1997 the bleeding edge of technology,just like the quad, was only 225mhz) Thats 44.44 TIMES more clock cycle power. And those 10,000 clock cycles are better clock cycles than the old ones.

considering quad are 4x 2.5Ghz. and mine is 2x2.8Ghz.

How many seconds does your system take? The 2.8 in the AMD's is a really quality 2.8. I'm waiting for all the 'dothan' based Pentium M chips to make it to the desktop. They are a really nice processor. My laptop has about the slowest pentium M you can get right now at 1.6ghz and Its equal to about a 2.6 or 2.8 p4 desktop. Its a great chip considering how watered down laptop hardware is compared to what I run in my desktop. The chip only has a 11 or 13 stage pipeline where as the p4 desktop has over 30 stages. When one quation has a error many others get fouled up when you have that many stages.

let your nerdy flurry,

nay, my 1.73 centrino is slower than P2.6 that i have compared againsted with. dothans is about x1.3-1.4 of the desktop equilvalent.

my best was 22 secs. 2x single opteron cores. i havent got the cash to get 2x dual opteron cores yet.
