another mac

G4 Single 1.25Ghz Mac, 768 Ram, Photoshop CS
3 minutes 15 seconds

G4 Single 1.25Ghz Mac, 768 Ram, Photoshop 7
3 minutes 20 seconds
(proof that PS-CS only feels crappy and slow compared to PS7)

G5 Dual 1.8Ghz Mac, 1 gig Ram, Photoshop CS
(just to check and show off)
1 minutes 17 seconds

I dont understand the fuss of defragmenting the hard drive for this task, as its CPU intensive...must be a PC thing

1min 51 sec

I was curious as to how my machine compares so I did the test. It took 1min 51 sec. Got P4 2.8 3G Ram (1.4G PShop, 700M Ramdisk for scratch).

wow... those dual G5's are fast.

2:20 on an iMac 1.8Ghz G5 1gig RAM .. some of the PS filters are 64 bit enabled but Im not sure if Radial blur is one of them. Anyone using 64bit AMD processors?

Importance of throughput!

I have an AMD Athlon XP 2.4ghz machine (single processor) with 768mb of ram. ran the test 3 times.

Ready for this?

DaDaDAAAAAA 41, 42, and 39 seconds!!!!!!!!!

Take that mac users!

Just kidding...when I was building my system I optimized it for high drain applications. WHEN WILL THEY START REPORTING COMPUTER SPEED IN FLOPS????

Michael

For the record flops are floating-point operations per second and are the measurements computer designers and builders use when testing systems. Man I feel like a geek for knowing that...

wow... liked this test.

I recently built my first white box (salty already).. I wanted a computer that I would be able to upgrade as my H/P offered no chance..

so as I read and gathered info there seemed to be several new items that I really wanted to include but my budget only allowed me to get my foot in the door.
But I have what I hope is a machine with a future...

my honest time was 1min 57sec. 2min .. 2nd time.. and I do have a stopwatch.

I have
Intel Pentium 4 520 2.8Ghz Processor

Intel D915PBLL Socket 775 ATX Motherboard ..
this was and still is one of the few MoBo's that allows the new Ram ..512mb of DDR2.. might be worth reading about for anyone interested http://www.overclockercafe.com/Articles/DDR_vs_DDR2/

this was one of the places my budget cut in... it's expensive RAM for now and while it would have worked better had I bought 2 x 256mb modules I opted for a single 512mb.. my hopes are to soon buy another.
this is also why I liked the results of this test.

other things that may have had a hand is that it's all Serial ATA (SATA) ... except for my old cd/cdrw.. for those who might not know it replaces the old ribbon cables with faster round ones.... very thin cables too which was a surprise.

I guess the hard drive didn't play into the results but that motherboard allows RAID configurations.. I bought a single (SATA) 80gig spinning at 7200rpm ...

again for anyone who is interested RAID is the only answer they have for speeding up writing and reading from hard drives... they couldn't make them faster so they developed a way to split the info between more than one hard drives....

that Socket775 motherboard effects the speed a lot I suspect.. the p4 is 800mhertz and I guess it just loves that socket. big Buss

I am going to post this then reboot and run that test again... i've got a few things running and it's been awhile since a reboot..

No faster

1:59 with the reboot.

I think the speed would improve a lot with another RAM module.. the board supports up to 4gb.

Sorry to bend everyone's ear... but a couple of years ago there was a contest here about how quickly photoshop re-opened and all the big white boxes kicked sand in my face... i feel somewhat redeemed for the moment.

oh and don't ask me about the fans (7)
