Budget Core 2 Platforms from ECS and Gigabyte
Photoshop and Windows Media Encoder
Windows Media Encoder 9 HD Video Encoding Benchmark (Lower Times are Better)
The ECS platform gives a slight performance edge in Photoshop CS3, completing our filter test less than half a second faster than our Gigabyte platform. No large performance differences here between these boards and our other boards in testing. Both boards show strong Media Encoding numbers as well, giving performance on par with the leading Nvidia 680i LT platform.
