Dont feel bad because this benchmark creates an image of about 500mb I believe so during operations it may need in excess of 2.5gigs of memory so if anyone has less than that, it will grind to a halt as it its your page file.

For example, if a dual G5 with 4 gig did the test in 1 minute and a G4 with 1.5 gigs did it in 10 minutes, I would be willing to bet that a G4 with 4 gigs of RAM would get it done in about 3 minutes.... This can be tested by modifying the action file to resize the image to one thats about 1/2 the size and see what the percentage speed increase is for teh machines that have a ton of ram and ones that have less than a ton of ram.

That is true, I'm really slowing myself down though by using the internal drive for the speed test. I'm running OSX, Photoshop's speed test, and then "virtual memory" all on one drive.

8min 30sec (all on internal hd)
Macbook Pro (with the damn whine!):
2.16ghz
1gb ram
100gb 7200rpm hd
Photoshop CS2

Pretty slow, but compared to my old 2ghz AMD pc, which took 16mins, it's pretty speedy.

I'll have to try connecting my external hd and see if it improves it much.

Speed tests on a 2.0 GHz MacBook with a variety of memory configurations (dual channel and single) plus Windows results on the same box.

Read about it here.

4:20 - MBP 2.16GHz, 2GB RAM, 7200RPM 100GB Hard Drive, Photoshop CS, 20 History States
4:57 - PB G4 1.33GHz, 2GB RAM, 5400RPM 80GB Hard Drive, Photoshop CS, 20 History States
3:15 - MBP 2.16GHz, 2GB RAM, 7200RPM 100GB Hard Drive, Photoshop CS, 1 History State.

The 7200 RPM drive really helped my MBP vs my old G4. I've been a bit underwhelmed by the MBP's speed, but everything I use for work is going through Rosetta, so it's not too surprising.

yeah the other macbooks were in the 5-minute range.

what were your history states set at? and was your macbook hitting any page-outs?

this is great...

thanks for this easy test for my newly acquired tower. it was really cheap, and allowed me to graduate from my slower imac g5. but the test i took from cinebench, and others wasn't telling me much. at least i thought i had problems with my new pride. i use photoshop extensively for my living, and this test tested the speed of my computer in an often used program. how clever!! and my results are on par with other forum users.
powermac g5/ dp 1.8 ghz/ 3 gigram/ geforce5200-64mb/ new seagate 160gbsata platter 7200rpm/ and asd 17"/ and a plug to the wall... my time.......2 minutes and 18 seconds.

thanks for this forum, and the test.

I decided to do this test on my iMac G5 rev. B (2GHz G5, 1.5 GB RAM, 160 GB HD - 10 gigs free, 10.4.6, PS CS2)

1) This is strange... I ran this test 4 times: first two after I downloaded it (with Safari taking ~ 80 MB of RAM) and 2 other times after restart.

So during the very 1st run I got 3:43
2nd time AND 3rd time I got 4:17 (it seemed to stall at guassuan blur, the CPU was idle, I assume it was writing to disk heavily). I restarted the computer before 3rd run.

2) This time I reduced history states from 200 to 1 (!). I did not restart the computer itself. So... time I got was impressing 2:03 , more than two times as fast as with 200 history states.

All four tests were performed after restarting Photoshop. If you're interested, I got 41751 pageout and 3.4 gigs were written to HD during 3rd test and after each run Photoshop was using 980-1000 MB RAM.

avg between two tests: 9mins 16 seconds

Powermac G4 Dual 500mhz "Gigabit Ethernet"
1 GB SDRAM
Tiger
CS 1

What was interesting to note is that the processors averaged around 80% load, and I did have iTunes running in the background playing podcasts, as well as iChat.

I think it's kind of funny/sad for all of you guys running Rosetta and getting results that are as slow as mine.

the DC 2.3GHz is capable of a much faster time than that. it should be right up there with my DP 2.7GHz

My old iMac took about 12 minutes, then it just stopped working. Let's see how the new one handles it.

1.8 Ghz iMac Core Duo with 1 gigabyte of RAM, using CS2...

6:00:92... nice. That's six minutes, by the way.
