World Bench 5.0: Office XP SP2 & Photoshop 7
Below we have the results from WB 5's Office XP SP2 and Photoshop 7 modules, recorded in seconds. Lower times indicate better performance, so the shorter the bar the better.
Office XP testing proved to be best suited to the nForce 430 based motherboards. With this test, the ASUS M2NPV-VM was the clear front runner while the 690G based M2A-VM HDMI was the slowest of the four boards tested.
With the Photoshop 7 module, all tests were very close with the largest difference between the quickest and the slowest board tested registering a mere 4 seconds overall.
