World Bench 5.0 - Photoshop 7 and Office XP Modules

PC World's World Bench 5.0: Photoshop 7 & Office XP Modules


PC World Magazine's WorldBench 5.0 is a new breed of Business and Professional application benchmark, poised to replace the aging and no-longer supported Content Creation and Business Winstone tests. 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 Photoshop 7 and Office XP SP2 modules, recorded in seconds.  Lower times indicate better performance.


Disregarding the Asus P5WD2, which seems to be the exception to the rule, the three nForce 4 SLI boards all completed the Photoshop 7 module at an average of 358 seconds.  The Office XP module also grouped the three boards in close proximity, with a mere 3 seconds separating them.  Once again, we will mark these tests as virtual ties, but make a mental note that the GA-8N-SLI was the overall leader in these benchmarks.
