John Nack notes a 35% Speed boost for Photoshop CS2 on MacIntel

Photoshop product manager John Nack posted a note on his Adobe blog that quotes Macworld’s benchmarks on Rosetta performance improvements with Mac OS X 10.4.8. John indicated an approximate 35% improvement running Photoshop CS2 on an Intel-based Mac system with the 10.4.8 update.

John went on to say: “This is pretty great news.  I mean, when’s the last time you got a free update that made your machine 35% faster at something?  Our engineering and QE folks worked closely with Apple as the new code was developed, testing frequent drops for compatibility and performance.  (See, it’s knowing/doing this kind of thing that makes me flip out when people start making up nonsense.)”
