Photoshop faster on Intel-based Macs

updated 09:45 am EDT, Thu April 6, 2006

WinMac vs. WinPC

Apple's Intel-based Macs are faster than their PC counterparts, according to new benchmarks. Substantiating previous results that showed that the MacBook Pro ran Photoshop faster than other Windows laptops, CNET News.com reports that running Photoshop was more than twice as fast as its Mac OS X on the same Intel-based Mac and that it beat out PCs from both Dell and Gateway: "With Windows XP Pro running on a 2.0GHz iMac Core Duo, we ran our Photoshop test in less than half the time it took with the same system running OS X 10.4.5: 2 minutes, 49 seconds vs. 6 minutes, 30 seconds to be exact, or a difference of 57 percent. It's also worth noting that the iMac Core Duo with Windows beat Pentium D 830-based PCs from Dell and Gateway on Photoshop as well. Come back tomorrow, when we'll have Windows-based iMac Core Duo results for the rest of our benchmark tests."
