Macworld says recent Mac OS update, 10.4.8, gives notable speed bump to Photoshop on
MACWORLD reports that Apple's recent Mac OS 10.4.8 update has boosted the speed of Photoshop CS2 by 34-36% on some Intel-based Macs, including the 15-inch MacBook Pro. Photoshop CS2 is not yet a universal binary application, meaning it must run under the Rosetta emulation mode on Intel-based Macs. Microsoft Word, which also is not yet a universal binary application, is also faster with OS 10.4.8, although the speed increase is more modest.
