Adobe said that its Creative Cloud applications are running more than 80% faster on Macs with Apple's M1's processor compared to identical systems powered by Intel.
The benchmarks from Adobe, which land among the release of several Creative Cloud apps for M1, were conducted by Pfeiffer Consulting in a study commissioned by Adobe. Adobe also shipped M1 native versions of Illustrator, InDesign and Lightroom Classic. Premiere Pro for M1 Macs is currently in public beta.
Pfeiffer Consulting found that the M1 MacBook Pro tops Intel-based Macs across seven Creative Cloud apps including Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, XD, Premier Pro, Lightroom and Lightroom Classic. Pfeiffer Consulting took 774 individual benchmark measures.
