There's no difference. One just takes longer so I can get a better idea of how the code execution is scaling across the cores. It still does everything one at a time just like if you came home and wanted to process only 10 images. The trouble with processing only 10 or something is that it's so lightning fast on this Xeon system that I can't tell if the procs are even being used at all.
That said, I've come home with nearly 2,000 RAW images a few times!
yep I run out and shoot 6000 raw images and then batch process them a few times a week. I'm sorry I forgot about that.
And I didn't batch process all 6,000. Just created a large catalog to work with and then processed a few at a time in a few various ways.
I don't think it's at all irrelevant.
I thought this was one of the better discussions on FM about buying computers! I'd like to continue a little with the Workstation thing tho.
Let the truth be known, PS CS6 even more than PS CS5.5 scales really well across multiple processors. People saying it doesn't are probably still using CS4 or maybe early CS5. I rather dislike LR so I dunno exactly but the versions I have tried scaled fairly well and Adobe has said they are making extra efforts to improve MP scaling in LR and PS. The CS...Show more →
