Generally, yes. PS is fastest when working exclusively in RAM, and you need RAM equal to about 5x the file size to achieve that. However, it makes efficient use of scratch disk space, which helps a lot on larger images.

Sorry it's a vague answer, but it was a vague question! Much depends on your system, PS version & set-up, & what you're trying to do in PS. Sorry I can't offer any comparison with PSP, as I've never used it.
