Having the CPU on 5 plus hours working in CS2 and Premiere I ran the test twice (both times with only CS2 open - bridge closed)

1st - 3.25
2nd - 3.20

Then I did a cold reboot and redid the test 2 more times (both times with only CS2 open - bridge closed).

1st - 3.45
2nd - 3.28

Homemade box a couple of years old P4 3.2 with 2 gig 3200 DDR on an intel board and XP Pro.

C drive only programs 60 GBs with (35 GBs free)
G 120GB WD 7200 drive mainly used for data storage before burning (25GB free)
Q 160GB SATA 7200 drive used for photo/video editing & swap (40GB free)
W 160GB SATA 7200 drive used for photo/video editing & swap (55GB free)

CS2 setup up RAM 65% usage and swap drives W, Q, G.

Next time I defrag I'll run the tests again and make some additional room avail on the HD's.

I'm not sure if this makes a difference but the original file (test image.jpg), I Downloaded to and opened up from "My Documents" on the C Drive. I usually work on opened files from my "W" Drive. Later I do it again from the working off "W" drive. :rolleyes:

Redid the test this time opening the "test image.jpg" from the "W" drive - 3.45

Although it's far away from a bench test it's a useful tool for ballpark figures.
Much is dependant on RAM. and also how much RAM is available. Apples memory management is meant to free up RAM that is not used by apps that sit in the background but the test I have just done suggests otherwise. My Mac had been on for a day with a few Adobe apps open when I firstly ran it.
2Ghz DP G5 2Gb RAM. Maxtor 160Gb HD (80Gb spare)
Test 1 4mins
Test 2 (after a restart with only PS CS2 open) 2m 15secs.
I would say this is mainly to to with a large portion of the scratch files created being sucked into the RAM.
(Also how many levels of history you allow has a big influence)

Nice Pickup - I just redid the test reducing my levels of history from 6 to 1 and shaved about 1 minute off my time - 2.40. :)

the machine is a custom built Dual Core AMD 3800+, 1GB of ram, 6600GT video card. The HDD is a seagate 300GB with 17mb cache, SATA

I haven't changed any of the settings for photoshop at all since the default settings seem to work for me.
