    The following are results from a pc that I just finished building...


    Retouch Artist Pro:( at stock cpu speeds)
    19.71 seconds

    Fred Miranda Test:
    With CPU at stock 2.66Ghz clock speed:
    8 bit=10.0 seconds
    16bit=12.62 seconds
    32bit=11.29 seconds

    With CPU at 3.6Ghz clock speed:
    8 bit= 7.83 seconds
    16 bit= 9.62 seconds
    32 bit = 8.43 seconds

    I am not sure at all why it is faster with 32bit than 16bit tests.

    Other info:
    Adobe PSCS3
    Intel Core i7 920
    DDR3-1600- 12 gigabytes total
    Vista Ultimate 64bit

    That beats my times even with a 3.6 GHz overclock on my i7. It demonstrates the difference in speed between CS3 and 4 for sure.

    Closing all open programs and setting your preferences in PS to use the maximum amount of memory available helps a bit. Having 12gb of tri-channel memory doesn't hurt either.

    Im running 12 gigs triple channel DDR3 1600 on a i7 920...but still on CS3...a tad less resourceful at utilizing all that RAM....and doesn't really make use of my dual processor video card like CS4 would. Its still plenty quick though...and Lightroom especially is buttery smooth quick....a plus for me since most of my work is done in Lightroom.

    For twice as much money the 950 is a little faster than the 920.

    Retouch Pro test, 8bit: 33 seconds
    Retouch Pro test, 16bit: 42 seconds

    So, with no disk activity, this Macbook Air is actually faster than the 13" Macbook Pro, with faster CPU and more RAM. Makes sense, since the L2 cache is better and the GPU is better, and then add in the SSD to the equation.

    I should also add, that Photoshop starts up in about 4seconds flat. Not kidding. RAW files open up at lightning speed, too. Kinda cool.

    Retouch Pro done at 16 bit.

    9.5 seconds.

    AMD 1090T at 3.5 Ghz
    4 Gb G.Skill ram DDR3 1333
    2 x WD Cav Black 640GB hard drives RAID 0
    2 x Nvidia GTX 470 video cards in SLI
    Windows 7 Home 64 bit
    PS CS5 64 bit

    Same as above but went from 4 Gb G.Skill RAM to 16 Gb Corsair DDR3 1333 memory

    Same test same time at 9.5 seconds. Guess the increased RAM did not help there...

    Looking good Andy. That must seem awfully fast by comparison, especially the smaller files. thumb.gifthumbclap.gif

    I almost bought 512Gb SSDs for this machine. But I really want at least 1Tb in Bay 1 & 2, raided. So I'm hopeful in <12 months to upgrade to that. Right now the SSD prices are crazy. But I love how fast my Macbook Air is at everything.

    Just go the new 2011 Mac Min - 2.5 GHz i5 dual core with stock 4 gigs RAM and 5400rpm drive.
    Retouch pro:
    8 bit - 19 sec
    16 bit - 23 sec

    FM photo seems to be missing/broken so can't run that test.
    Smoking for a mini!! Going to upgrade RAM to 8 gigs in a few days. Have read that SSD doesn't help LR at all...

    Broken links
    The OP has a broken link in his post...making it unusable. Time to retire this sticky. It's 5 years old...

    Fred's link doesn't work.

    Thanks, Ed
