A Mac Pro is not be best choice for Photoshop (even among Apple’s offerings), but there are a number of users who use Photoshop as a secondary application in their workflow. In this article we will be examining how the top-end Mac Pro (late 2013) compares to two of our workstations.
Whenever there is a new generation of CPUs launched, the main question everyone wants to know is how fast they are. In the case of AMD’s Ryzen, there are also a lot of questions surrounding how they compare to the offerings available from Intel. For quite a while now, Intel has held a dominant position in nearly every computing market but there is a lot of hype around Ryzen due to the fact that you can get eight CPUs cores for half the cost of an eight core Intel CPU.
Video cards often get a lot of press and reviews, but unfortunately the professional cards such as the NVIDIA Quadro cards often get overlooked. In this article we will be looking at the current Quadro lineup to see how they perform in Photoshop.
Video cards often get a lot of press and reviews, but unfortunately for content creators (and other professionals), it is almost impossible to find any relevant non-gaming benchmarks to help you decide what card to purchase. In this article we will be looking at the GTX 1000 series cards and the Pascal Titan X to see how they perform in Photoshop.
There is no doubt that a modern workstations are incredibly fast, but it can be difficult to determine how much of a performance gain you might see if you were to replace your 2,3,4, or 5 year old workstation. To try to answer this question as objectively as we can, we decided to benchmark five workstations using the highest end components over the past 6 years to see how they compare in Photoshop 2017
With the new Kaby Lake CPUs from Intel, the main question everyone wants to know is how much faster they are compared to the old CPUs. In this article, we will be tackling this question in terms of Photoshop performance by examining how the new Intel Core i7 7700K and the Intel Core i5 7600K perform compared to the previous generation Intel Core i7 6700K and Intel Core i5 6600K. In addition, we will also look at a number of “High-End” Core i7 CPUs including the i7 6850K, i7 6900K, and i7 6950X.
With hundreds of CPU models available, it can be a daunting task to determine which CPU will give you the best performance in Photoshop. In this article we will be examining the multi-threading capabilities of Photoshop CC to determine whether a CPU with a high frequency or a CPU with a high core count will give you the best possible performance.
Photoshop CS6 utilizes the Mercury Graphics Engine to take advantage of the video card to vastly improve the performance of certain features, but there is currently very little information available regarding the performance of different video cards. In addition, the list of compatible cards from Adobe has not been updated to include the current NVIDIA 600-series video cards, which is further adding to the confusion of deciding which video card you should use for Photoshop CS6.
In this article, we will be benchmarking a variety of video cards to find out if Photoshop is actually compatible with the NVIDIA 600-series, and exactly how much performance difference there is between a wide spectrum of video cards.
