WB 5.0: Office XP SP2 and Photoshop 7
PC World Magazine's WorldBench 5.0 is a new breed of Business and Professional application benchmark, that has replaced the aging and no-longer supported Content Creation and Business Winstone tests in our suite. 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 Office XP SP2 and Photoshop 7 modules, recorded in seconds. Lower times indicate better performance here, so the shorter the bar the better.
WorldBench 5.0's Office XP SP2 and PhotoShop 7 performance modules didn't reveal any major performance differences between the various platforms we tested. The P5NSLI was the fastest, or nearly fastest motherboard in the group, but when only a second or two (or three) separates the "fastest" and "slowest" boards of the bunch, it would hardly be fair to declare any one product the overall performance leader here.
