I was doing some browsing. I didn't come up with much. A dated early 2007 article said Photoshop was dual core threaded.
- This is a good article even though it relates to the previous generation MP.
Really, the 8-cores will only be used for video and 3D editing. I think Photoshops real limits are the graphics and RAM, not the processor. As seen in the table on the Mac World link, the 8-core only beat the 4-core by two seconds in a CS3 test.
I know you really want the 3.2GHz 8-core, it will go unused. I am so happy with my quad 2.8GHz. It's a beast; 8-cores are overkill.
Edit- Here's the other: CNet
