World Bench 5: Photoshop 7 and Office XP

PC World's World Bench 5.0: Photoshop 7 & Office XP Modules

PC World Magazine's WorldBench 5.0 is a new breed of Business and Professional application benchmark, poised to replace the aging and no-longer supported Content Creation and Business Winstone tests. WorldBench 5.0 consists of a number of performance modules that each utilize one, or a group of, popular applications to gauge performance.  Below we have the results from WB 5's Photoshop 7 and Office XP SP2 modules, recorded in seconds.  Lower times indicate better performance.



In our testing with WorldBench 5.0, we saw that the Abit AW8-MAX Premium outpaced the Asus P5WD2 by roughly 15 seconds in both modules.  While 15 seconds may not sound like a huge amount in a real-world sense, in the PC world that could be an eternity. Just imagine waiting that long each time you edited a picture or saved a document.  This is the largest advantage for the Abit AW8-MAX so far in our testing.
