Mac Speed Test - instructions attached

Discussion in 'Apple/Mac' started by JerseyJay, Jul 1, 2008.

  1. I did this long time ago on another forum but testing PCs. I'm curious if the same has been posted in this section or even this forum. In any event, I'm curious to see new iMac 2.8 vs. 3.06 performance stats with obviously the same RAM. I also would be more than welcome to see other Mac stats.

    Let's play ... ;) 

    ---------------------

    1.) Download Image from HERE

    2.) Save it to computer and then open it up in Photoshop

    3.) From there please apply a 'radial blur' with the settings at:

    Amount = 100
    Blur Method = Spin
    Quality = Best

    Using a stop watch / ps timer see how long it takes to apply this filter.

    Please list your system, cpu, amount of ram and the time it took for the test.

    Who says you need a lot of RAM? All you really need is a lot of processors. :biggrin:

    My MacPro is bone stock, BTW. I got it at the local Apple Store, took it out of the box, and hooked it up. I made the switch from a PC back in February. And a good switch it was!
