Office XP and Photoshop 7
PC World Magazine's Worldbench 5.0 is a business and professional application benchmark. The tests consist 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 5.0's Office XP SP2 and Photoshop 7 performance modules, recorded in seconds. Lower times indicate better performance here, so the shorter the bar the better.
The Core 2 Extreme QX6800 processor put up the best scores in the two Worldbench 5.0 tests we ran. In the Office XP test, the QX6800 bested the QX6700 and X6800 processors by 9 and 3 seconds, respectively. And in the Photoshop test its leads over the same two processors were 14 and 4 seconds.
