John Nack, senior product manager for Photoshop has posted a story on his blog about the relative advantages of multiprocessors (multi-core) and what it means for Photoshop. John, not being an engineer geek himself has enlisted the help of Co-architect of Photoshop (and Photoshop engineer), Russell Williams to shed some light on the subject.
Geek Warning: if reading about CPUs, memory bandwidth and Amdahl’s Law gives you a headache, you might do well to avoid the subject. However, if you are into understanding issues surrounding Photoshop performance, you might want to sneak a peek.
