Capture NX2 Speed Test
Aug 26, 2009

In an effort to determine how well NX2 runs on different hardware, I've developed a test for everyone to try. This test is in response to a post I placed on the Mac Talk forum, asking about how well NX2 performed on the latest Nehalem Mac Pros:

Briefly, it uses 5 sample D3 NEF files (86Mb download!), applies a setting file to them, then saves the NEFs as 16-bit uncompressed RGB TIFFs. The user is asked to time how long this process and save takes and record his/her computer hardware info in this thread. It is similar to tests available for Photoshop speed tests (RetouchPro, etc.). Since the instructions are detailed, I am placing them in a separate post.
