Re: Heavy Photoshop User - i7 iMac enough?
In reply to stevejack, 10 months ago

Just to follow up for clarity - right now I have Photoshop set to use just under 8gb of memory so I can leave 4gb for other OS applications. At the moment activity monitor shows it's using 7.88gb (the full amount allocated to it) and the swap is now filling up (currently at 6.37gb).

Inactive Ram is still showing 5.56gb, even thought the numbers don't really add up, that's what it's showing.

Trying to type this message is painfully slow. Lots of stuttering and delayed keyboard response. The entire OS is lagging (opening finder windows etc).
