WorldBench Office and Photoshop Benchmarks
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.
The trend continues as the DQ6 once again comes in second in both the WorldBench Office XP and Photoshop tests. As before, the difference between the two boards is barely noticeable. Practically, you would never notice the difference between the two boards in everyday use of either Office or Photoshop.
