World Bench 5.0: Office XP SP2 & Photoshop 7

PC World Magazine's WorldBench 5.0 is a Business and Professional application benchmark suite which consists of a number of performance modules that each utilize one, or a group of, popular applications to gauge performance.  In these tests, both integrated and discrete graphics were used to help demonstrate the impact of sharing 256MB of system memory with the integrated graphics vs running no shared memory and a graphics card with 256MB of its own memory.

World Bench 5.0: Office XP SP2 & Photoshop 7 Modules
Business And Content Creation application performance

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.
