Asus Blitz Formula and Extreme P35 Motherboards
Office XP SP1 and Photoshop
PC World Magazine's Worldbench 5.0 is a Business and Professional application benchmark. The tests consist 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 5.0's Office XP SP1 and Photoshop 7 performance modules, recorded in seconds. Lower times indicate better performance here, so the shorter the bar the better.
Despite offering more memory bandwidth, the Blitz Extreme trailed the Formula in Worldbench 5's Office XP and Photoshop performance tests by a few seconds in each. All else being equal, these tests are more sensitive to memory latency, hence the Extreme's slight lower score here.
