Improved Photoshop Benchmark CPU speed test for both Mac & PC – Free Radial Blur filter test

I “released” my photoshop radial blur CPU benchmark test almost a year ago. Since then CPU processors have gotten faster, as they always do. So it was time update the test in preparation for the new even faster Intel six core hyper threaded Gulftown processor, the Core i7 980X. The only basic difference between this new and improved CPU benchmark test and the older test is the larger file that the test is performed on. New for this test is a photoshop action that will preform the test for you. Also the newer version of test allows you to use Photoshop CS3, CS4, CS5, and CS6 to time the result for you.

Step One – down load the Radial Blur Test Action. Load action into photoshop. The test automates this routine – ( Filter > Blur > Radial Blur.Set the Radial Blur setting to: Amount at 100, Blur Method to Spin, and finally Quality to Best )

Step Two – down load the file ( about 4.8 MB ) to run the test on by clicking on the image below. Next open the image in CS3, CS4, CS5, or CS6.

Step Three – close any and all unnecessary programs including the browser you used to read this photo blog post and down load the files from.

Step Four – note the time in the box below the image. If the time is not showing, use the black arrow shown in the bottom image to change the display mode under the image.

Step Five – note the time displayed under the image. The amount of time already listed under the picture will need to be subtracted to from the the test score time.

Step Six – Run the test by opening the action and running the “PS Radial Blur Test”. The test took 20.0 seconds on my current computer which is a HP h8-1070t ($1200 -Oct. 2011) PC powered by an Intel i7-2600 3.40 GHz CPU running Win 7 64 bit on CS5.

Step Seven – if you have gotten this far and have a test time, please feel free to post a comment with your time. Don’t forget to include the photoshop version along with the CPU specs. The tests results are not effected by RAM size, so there is no need to list how much RAM your computer has.

Great news, one of the many 1000′s of people who read my blog weekly, ( ok, hundreds of people who read my blog ) preformed the radial blur test on his computer at several different over clocking speeds. This is a great way to get an apples to apples comparison for CPU test results. Without any further delay, I present the test times, computer setup, and over clocking speeds from Steve Lingeman of Burke, Virginia.

Steve’s computer with prices as purchased from newegg.com

The total build cost for the system (not including Win 7) was $2853.79 plus $35 shipping.

After the build Steve had some thoughts about the video card. “Also, instead of the Diamond/ATI videocard, I think I’d go with an Nvidia GTX480 (or eventually the GTX485) for about the same price. Selecting the ATI was poor planning. I was not thinking about the acceleration provided by Nvidia’s Cuda GPU. It’s not a big deal for PS5 but it makes a huge difference editing video with Premiere Pro CS5.”

Here are the results from Steve’s custom computer build.

February 2011 update: To quote Eddie Murphy from the movie 48 Hours, “there’s a new sheriff in town” & his name is Mac Pro with 12 cores.

A reader has sent in a new chart topping time of 9.3 seconds using the photoshop benchmark test on his brand spanking new 12 core Mac Pro. Here are the details of the machine – Mac Pro running OS X 10.6 – Dual 6 core Intel 2.93 GHz Xeon Westmere CPU – 8 GB of RAM – ATI Radeon HD 5770 1GB – Tested using Photoshop CS5 64 bit – Priced at $6349 – Here’s the interesting note, the reader purchased his brand new top of the line chart busting desktop computer for video editing. He said of the new computer “nice to have a top score machine at least once”.

April 2011 Intel Sandy Bridge update: The first times with the new Intel Sandy Bridge CPUs are in and they are smoking fast for what they cost.

The first test score from an Sandy Bridge CPU was 21.5 seconds on i5-2500k (not overclocked) on a desktop computer that can be had for about $750. That time was almost equal to Intel’s previous top of the line CPU ( the Intel i7 980X 3.33 GHz ) run without overclocking and costing more than a $1000 for the CPU alone. The other test time was from the i7-2600k overclocked from 3.4 GHz to 5.1 GHz resulting in a time of 14.2 seconds. The PC desktop home built computer featuring that CPU was built for about $1700. That’s pretty amazing when you consider the time was equal to the Apple Mac Pro 6 core Xeon Westmere 3.33 GHz which costs $3700 for a comparable set up.

September 2012 Update – A PC now tops the time chart with a smoking fast 8.3 second time. Most interesting is that it’s a home built computer that cost just $2115.

Windows 7 64 bit

[...] Because the result times on many of the newer computers were under 10 seconds, I designed a new and improved test. It can be found HERE. [...]

Hi, I just upgraded my PC setup and ran the improved test on both my new and my old setup.

My new setup with AMD Phenom II x4 965 on a Gigabyte 790XTA-UD4 in Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit with Adobe Photoshop CS4 64-bit resulted in 42,6 seconds.

On the other hand, my old setup with AMD Athlon 64 3700+ (single core) on an Asus A8N32-SLI-Deluxe in Windows XP Professional 32-bit with Adobe Photoshop CS3 32-bit resulted in 283,2 seconds.

I am going to assume that my money was well spent, as I was aiming for faster photoshop and lightroom delays :)

Thanks for the great test!

The system above is running Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit and Photoshop CS5 64 bit.
I just put this system together. I have not had a chance to do any tuning aside from some rough overclocking.
I think the memory could be tuned for better performance while overclocking.

Quick update, ran the test again but this time I entered the ASUS ez bios and selected to run at “Optimal” condition. I have no clue how to overclock so I tried that and got it to run 16.0 seconds. I previously sent you the time of 20.0 seconds, so that is a 4.0 second improvement simply by selecting the ASUS motherboard recommended settings.
Needless to day I am very pleased with this.

adminApril 10, 2012 - 7:10 am

Miika,
Did you remember to subtract the time it took to load the photo. I’ve seen that take up to .5 seconds.
That would improve your time. The other possible answer is, that the test is being run on many different
computers, and while the test times with the same CPU’s are pretty close, and in some cases exactly the same,
there are too many other slight variables that can effect the results.
