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.
Below we have the results from World Bench 5's Office XP SP2 and Photoshop 7 modules, recorded in seconds. Lower times indicate better performance here, so the shorter the bar the better.
As we expected to see throughout this review, the performance between the two CrossFire Xpress 3200 boards was extremely close. In the case of the Office XP SP2 component, the ASUS M2R32-MVP was the best performer, completing the test 3 seconds faster than the ECS KA3 MVP Extreme.
With World Bench 5's Photoshop test, both boards returned the same score, completing the test in 313 seconds.
