Russ,
I just opened a 80mb TIFF file in CS5 and tried removing about 25% of the image using the content aware filter. I have real time CPU and RAM usage that shows up on my keyboard's LCD (logitech G15). The content aware doesn't use much RAM, just a 10% increase from 35% to 45% ( I have 6 gigs install). It actually uses more CPU power because of the calculations the software has to do to try and emulate the surrounding area. The CPU went from 5% to 70% during this process and it took my system about 5 seconds to complete the task. Now you have to remember that I have a Intel i7 chip overclocked to 4Ghz and photo editing just ain't going to push it to the limit but a normal Intel core2duo or quad core is gonna struggle.
No real point to my post but I thought I'd point this out. Plus who is going to want to remove 25% of a photo using content aware?
