Adobe Photoshop M1 Mac Native Now
Adobe announced Adobe Photoshop M1 Mac native compatibility this past week. Internal tests show that Photoshop delivers significant performance gains across the application for customers using these latest Macs with the M1 chips.
Adobe Photoshop M1 Mac Performance
Photoshop now runs natively on Macs powered by the M1 chip and takes advantage of the performance improvements built into this new architecture. Adobe’s internal tests show a wide range of features running an average of 1.5X the speed of similarly configured previous generation systems.
Adobe states, “Tests covered a broad scope of activities, including opening and saving files, running filters, and compute-heavy operations like Content-Aware Fill and Select Subject, which all feel noticeably faster.”
Imagine turning a 10-megapixel photo into a 40-megapixel photo with one click that produces very high-quality results. Also part of the Adobe Photoshop M1 Mac update is the new Super Resolution feature within the Adobe Camera Raw plugin in Photoshop, which does just that. Adobe is planning on releasing it for Lightroom and Lightroom Classic very soon as well.
Super Resolution uses an advanced machine learning model trained on millions of photos. Super Resolution intelligently enlarges photos while maintaining clean edges and preserving important details. It is powered by your GPU, making it crazy fast as well.
