photoshop on a PC still slow....maybe its normal?
hey, i posted a few months ago about how much time it took work with large .tiff files in photoshop. i bought a new PC. one with the amd 64 dual core processors, and 3gb RAM. its faster, yea, but it takes a good 30 seconds to open up a 150meg file in photoshop. takes 15 to 30 seconds to flatten the layers, and sometimes it takes over a min to save! is this typical for this size file or is something wrong? Ive defraged the hard drive and stuff but it didnt help....it doesnt apear to be running out of memory either. im using this computer soley for photoshop and hardly have anything else installed on it...

Thanks!
Dan

Couple tips here:

You might also check what processes you have running in the background and see if there is something unusual.

Hey Dan,
For that amount of bytes to be moved you will need to stripe several sata disks to improve the data transfer performance, probably your motherboard has this capability if not there are some boards to do the job. Striping is building an array of several disks so the OS treat them as if they were one increasing the performance greatly. This technic is used in publishing and high data rate video work.

I have found that installing a 2nd fast hard drive and using it as a scratch disk helps.
The problem seems to be in the history, When you are working with larger files photoshop seems to have to save the history to the hard drive. When your reading and writing on the same hard drive at the same time expect delays.

Photoshop does not need 64 bit procesesors to work fast


Striping your hard drives

matches parity memory with low lantency helps
