AuthorSubject: Photoshop use of Dual Processors   [Go to Bottom of Page]
Adriel Heisey
Posted on Sat Nov 8, 2003 7:25 PM

Question:

Is Photoshop 7 designed to make effective use of dual processors?

Background:

I want to get more speed out of my Power Mac G4 (Sawtooth 400 Mhz). I can't afford a G5, but I can afford to upgrade my current machine (as in the upgrade article in the current issue of Macworld). My main concern is with Photoshop performance because I am working with large numbers of large (200 to 350 MB) image files.

I already have the maximum RAM, and I realize that the bus speed is a limit I can't change. But looking at the extra cost of dual processors, I wonder if PS can take advantage of them, i.e. is it worth it?

Also, is the OS a factor in PS performance? I've been reluctant to upgrade to OSX because of taxing an already slow computer. With the processor upgrade, I'm willing to revisit this decision--should I? (Again, Photoshop performance is the overarching concern.)

Thanks,

Adriel Heisey
