Re: Photoshop speed test

Imac 2.4 Core 2 Duo Extreme, 4gb ram. I done this based on 8 inches by 10 inches because no actual measurements were given and the result was 4.00 minutes.

Just run it again at 8-cm by 10-cm and it was rapid 19 seconds.

Re: Photoshop speed test

I just did the test again but with 8cm X 10cm. In my previous tests I always used inches (funny I am Spanish, we use cm). Anyway these are the results:


macbook pro core 2 duo 2.2Ghz. 4GB RAM, GeForce 8600GT 128MB.


apple os x 10.5.1
photoshop cs3 10.0

test 8 cm X 10 cm -

8 bit: 5.1 secs.
16 bit: 6.4 secs.

test 8 in X 8 in -

8 bit: 40.7 secs
16 bit: 55.5 secs

I can't wait for my 8 core (Mac Pro...)

Re: Photoshop speed test

I can't believe that this thread has been dormant for exactly 3 years to the day. By coincidence I just happen to bring up a new machine with Intel's 2nd generation i7 Core Processor (i7-2600 Quad Core 8 Thread 3.4 Ghz) running Window 7. The test completed in just under 7 secs. It is amazing to see how technology has advanced in the short years since this thread was started.
In case anyone is interested, there is a more demanding and meaningful test developed and published orininally at, now The multiple steps were incorporated into an action which is accompanied by a test image. I seem to recall when I first ran the test, the time was somewhere close to 10 minutes. I just ran it on the new machine and the run time was 12 secs! If anyone wants the action and test file, it can be found at
Regards, Murray
