    Hey all
    Well i was working on designing a scene on my PC, but found out that it sometimes becomes slow,or it takes quite some minutes to apply a Blur(especially the Radial blur), so i decided to test it on my uncles iMac and surprisingly it loaded the application faster and also i found that it took less time to apply this blur. and overall i found it faster.
    So is CS5 overall faster on OS X ? or i was experiencing a bug maybe on the windows ?This is the first time i tested it on both OS's so I'm sorry if its been asked before

    I don't think the performance differences between Mac and PCs has come up as a topic before....maybe I missed it. Maybe another forum? :)

    I think it is safe to say exactly what you tested: The load and blur functions in CS5 worked faster on your Mac.

    Does the iMac have "Enable OpenGL Drawing" checked?
