How powerful is your computer? Test it now!
 
Here is a nice method of comparing our computer powers between Photo Camel users :cool:

- Open new document in Photoshop
- Set document size to 8inch x 10inch 300dpi and press ok.
- add noise, uniform monochrome 400%
- grab your clock!
- Filter, blur, radial blur, zoom best quality 100%
- When you click OK, start taking time!

I'm not on my PS computer right now, but let us hear how long did it take for you and what kind of computer setup you have!

Don't you have a simpler test where I only need to start a predetermined sequence of events (a 'macro', 'script' or 'action') once, which is timed?

Do a google for benchmarking tools, there's a pile of free ones. Its far more consistent than manually running something in Photoshop, and also, there could be some variance in the initial noise, since that is randomly generated. Though a 2400x3000 px. file should be big enough for that not to matter. At any rate, on my work laptop, with Outlook, FF, WMP, Crystal Report Dev 10, and PL/SQL Developer open, it took 3:05.

Clicking on three menu items too much for you? LOL.

Yes, because you click much faster than I do.
Or v.v.
Bottom line: it's not a standardized test.

Just to make you folks feel better about your computers, mine is a Compaq laptop, mobile AMD Athlon, 1.85 MHz, & 960 MB RAM.

Mine only took 7:02 - that is minutes and seconds. Yep, I started the program made me a cup of coffee and drank half of it while it was processing. I don't do any heavy duty PP!

41 seconds on a 2.4GHz Intel Core2 Duo and 2GB RAM (with a handful of other apps running simultaneously).
Is anybody plotting this?
