Now, you don’t have to wait for Adobe Photoshop CS3 to make it run faster on Apple’s new Intel-processored Macs. Thoughtful users have found that the recently released OS X 10.4.8 actually boosted Photoshop CS2 performance by 35 percent!

Photoshop product manager John Nack posted a note on his Adobe blog that quotes Macworld’s benchmarks on Rosetta performance improvements with Mac OS X 10.4.8.

“This is pretty great news. I mean, when’s the last time you got a free update that made your machine 35% faster at something?” quips Nack.
