Re: Photoshop speed test

New Computer, hardly bleeding edge though.
Pentium D 805 - Dual Core, 64 bit, 2.66 GHz
Asus P5B Deluxe motherboard
2GB Corsair DDR2 6400 C4
Windows XP64 bit
OS installed on an 80GB IDE HDD, Photoshop on a 500GB SATA drive, PsCS3 beta - all settings/options default.
Noise->Radial Blur test:
1:08 - 8 bit
1:22 - 16 bit
1:26 - 32 bit
CS2, all settings default, everything else the same:
1:08 - 8 bit
1:15 - 16 bit
7, defaults, everything else the same:
1:26 - 8 bit

There are too many variables IMO to do a proper, honest grid. If everyone would do the test with Photoshop using all default settings that would be a start at being a more fair/accurate comparison chart. I went through and wrote down alot of the results from this thread a few weeks ago and once I was done immediately something jumped out at me: A Pentium 4 @ 2.66 GHz will do the test in either 2:50 or 2:06 depending on the other variables... I'd love to make a grid but it's a bit of a daunting task to keep all the variables in line.

I used a digital clock to time mine - clicked 'ok' when the seconds reached 00 to make things easier

Radial Zoom+ Retouch Artists full test Photoshop speed test

1. using theeeeese directions:

In Photoshop, make a new RGB white bg 8x10 300ppi document. Open Add Noise and set to Uniform, Monochromatic, 400% and click OK. Then open Radial Blur, set to Amount 100, Method Zoom, Quality Best.

Core 2 Duo 6300 1.86Ghz@3.29Ghz (OC) 2GB RAM, Windows XP Pro SP2 on a custom PC with high quality components (800$ US total only)
(overclock is totally stable and gives low temp with silent air cooling)
Used a 15GB partition on a 500GB Seagate 16MB Barracuda NS for scratch.
with no scratch same results (test uses not much of memory)

Photoshop CS3 beta: 21sec
Photoshop CS2: 37sec
Photoshop CS: 30sec

2. Using the "Retoutch Artists Speed test" action:

(In all photoshop versions Gaussian Blur starts at around 25secs and delivers lags in the beginning and midtime of the filter)

Photoshop CS3 beta: 52sec with one LAG (of 14sec in the start of g.blur)
38sec without the g.blur LAG

Photoshop CS2: 56sec with one LAG (of 15sec in the start of g.blur)
42sec without the g.blur LAG

Photoshop CS: 1min 27sec with two LAGS (19sec+30sec g.blur start+middle)
0min 37 sec without the LAGS decscribed below

The Gaussian Blur STALLS for 14-50 secs on our configuration, probably Core 2 Duo is not well supported on Windows Xp platform. As in the past, ADOBE photoshop LAGS ARE PROBABLY DUE TO BAD windows XP COMPILING, because in any other aspect the machine is super fast (including renders, encodings etc in other programmes)

keeping on working and testing, our greetings to all the digital community

Re: Photoshop speed test

Interesting test

17" Macbook Pro - Dualcore 2.16ghz processor, 2gb ram

Done in CS3 - 0:45

I imagine it'll get a bit faster once my new external drive arrives and I have more than 400mb free on the drive.. photoshop is not happy with me right now.
