Yeah Ed...

Gary and Leah got me thinking too....

AMD Athlon XP 1.68 MHz (2000+), 768 MB RAM - 5:13
for a 2400x3000 pixels document.... (8x10 at 300ppi).

I did vaguely think I had more than 1.29 GHz, but that's what the PC claims I have...

Switch off some of the many superfluous background tasks that run in XP and it will speed things up. It did for me. Try this site for info. www.fixyourwindows.com/optimizewindows.htm

Hi, after looking at some other peoples specs and times, I wondered if I'd done anything wrong, so I ran the test again and came out with exactly the same time 3' 35".

Thank you Gary for the link, I'll have a look at the steps later on. T'was a tad strange, since the other results seem to show a linear dependance between the MHz and the time (I've corrected the diagram above again).

I do have MemTurbo running, which does something clever with system resources (although precisely what it is goes over my head). That might be a factor.

P4 1.4 Ghz, IGB RAM, Windows 2000, Photoshop 7.01

Test 1 - PS memory allocation: 50% - 5 min 56 sec
Test 2 - PS memory allocation: 80% - 5 min 50 sec

Interesting to note that elapsed times in this highly compute bound task reflect the benefits of additional horsepower and perhaps slightly better resourse managing by XP.

Would the RAM type (DDR or not) have much impact?

Are there any other Mac users reading this that might be willing to run the test?

Yes, me.
The document is 2400 wide, 3000 tall
933MHz single G4, 768MB RAM MacOS X 10.2.8
4:32 with everything else running (quite a lot)
Quitting everything except Photoshop and this browser
4:45!
Perhaps Photoshop likes a little competition?
Is it time for me to upgrade to a dual 2.5GHz G5?

Why didn't you do it once and then copy? Because you didn't do exactly the same each time?
