(title should read CS v CS 3 rather than v CS 2)
I have held out till now to buy CS3 because I don't need any of the new tools etc in CS3 but I feel CS is running a little slow on my intel mac. Is CS3 going to be much faster then CS on intel? Also I had a couple of crashes with CS. Anyone have experience in such matters?

CS 3 is Intel-native, ie it doesn't run under the Rosetta PPC emulator. Barefeats website has a short benchmark test comparing CS 2 to a beta of CS 3 ([a href=\"http://www.barefeats.com/quad16.html]here[/url]).

Oh blimey, it's a big difference isn't it. Time to upgrade me thinks. Thanks.

You can also download a trial version of Photoshop CS 3 and see for yourself if upgrading is worth it.

FWIW, you should also read John Nack's article [a href=\"http://blogs.adobe.com/jnack/2008/05/oct_1.html]here[/url].

As usual, one can only guess. NDAs are there to prevent disclosure of real/official information, everything else is just speculation...
