Hmmm... maybe I didn't do it right, but it only took four seconds for me.

AMD Athlon 64 3500+
1GB PC3200 RAM

edit: ahhhhh..... i see what I didn't do correctly. Let me try it again.

AMD Athlon 3000
1.5gb RAM
Scratch on RAID 0 partition C (100gb free from 120gb), then hard drive E (80gb free from 160gb), then RAID 0 partition D (60gb free from 120gb), set at 50% and 80% returned the same results.

= 2 mins 50 secs

Centrino 1.4ghz Laptop
768mb RAM
Scratch on hard drive (only 4200rpm - 25gb free from 40gb), set at 50% and 80% returned the same results.

= 2 mins 45 secs

So having sat and studied the results (yes, I know that's sad), the dual G5's come out top, with the P4 HT processors closely following, all at just below the 2 minute mark. But I was reading that the new HT processors actually only really speed things up on certain PS filters, and don't (as yet) make a huge difference in most people's workflows. Any suggestions as to some kind of measurable real-world test?

I hate to say this, but if you want to really speed up your workflow with todays technology, you really need to overclock your machine. Motherboards are still the bottleneck on most systems, you can have a 8 GHz processor and ram that can flip a bit in .0001 nanoseconds (such equipment does not exist), and if you have an 800 MHz bus, your system will only work as well as an 800 MHz bus can get the information from one to the other.

So you take a 2.4 GHz processor with an 800 MHz bus and nice fast ram, say .01 nanoseconds. Then you overclock it to turn it into a 4.8 GHz processor with a bus of 1.6 GHz bus. Make sure you keep it cool (lots of heat sinks and fans won't work if you do something this drastic) like with a water cooling system or a freon system. (or if we really want to keep it cool spring for a liquid nitrogen system.)

*WARNING* this is an activity for hardware ubergeeks. I got a friend to help me set up mine in exchange for shooting his wedding. Don't do this yourself unless you really know what you are doing because you run the risk of destorying every piece of hardware in your system.

PS Don't trust my numbers, I know he doubled the flops, but I have no idea where everything is actually set.

Hmmm, seeing as the business owns my main graphics machines, I think there'd be some complaints if I fried it!!!! Maybe I'd better just find low tech ways of speeding it up for now!

I know how you feel, I have a machine at home I can do whatever I want to, but with my machine at work I get nasty emails if I change the desktop image. (slight overstatement, but I'm sure you know the feeling.)

LOL Yeah, I know what you mean. It's a family business, and I run the network of pc's (no one else knows how), so I can pretty much do what I like, and I'm always fiddling with them (I have a choice of 8 to mess up!), but it still wouldn't go down well if they had to buy a new pc because I'd killed it. On the other hand, if you've got any ideas that don't risk destruction, I'd love to hear them!

Mac speed test

iMac G5 1.8ghz (my email computer)
1gb DDR ram (2x512mb)

2min 55 sec (pshop cs)

I will test it on my work machine later this morning (dual G5 2.5ghz 2gb mem) I'm currently using it to batch process raws.

I hope the Dual G5 blows away anyone else's results! (Especially you P4 dual PC users out there!!) It'll make me feel like it was worth the $$ anyway!

Later,
Greg
