Hi,

i will have to exchange my MacPro soon - it´s a 2006 one :)

Which 27" iMac would be "better" or will they act nearly similar with APG/Panotour (and Photoshop)?
- iMac 27" with 2GB graphics card
- or the newer one with 4GB graphics RAM

Both with i7, SSD and 32GB RAM of course :) Any advice from the "real world" would be nice?
This is not about discussing a 1.2% advantage - just the question if there will be a noticeable difference.
I am shooting with Nikon D800, mostly 5x10 = 50 images/pano.

Thanks - Peter

The latest 27" top-iMac is VERY fast! Stick it full with RAM and you have a very fast machine for a reasonable price. But don´t buy the RAM at Apple´s . . . =D

I read a competitive test of a 2009 iMac and a new one - not badat all! The test was done by some panorama-photography cracks and was related to APG and PTGui.


Here - Willy Kaemena on "Panoramic Photographers on Facebook" (very good group btw.)
https://www.facebook.com/groups/panoram ... 337761680/

If you´re not on FB - here some notes from the test:

"Real World Comparison iMac 27 i7 late 2013 versus iMac 27 i7 late 2009

First test: Duplication of a zip file of 955Mb
2013: 4.5s 2009: 19s

Second test: unzip a zip of 955MB with 9370 files
2013: 7s 2009: 32s

Third test: Start PS6 and open a 1.3GB TIFF file
2013: 10s 2009: 50s

Forth test: PTGUI stitching of 8 TIFF pictures to an output size of 20000x10000 in 16 bit blended + 8 layer files TIFFs. Temporary files folder on same drive.
2013: warp ready at 1:35 2009: 3:30
2013 blend ready at 1:45 2009 4:10
outputting 9 files of a total 4.7GB ready at 3:10 2009 7:15"
