World Bench 5.0 - Photoshop 7 & Office XP
With our World Bench 5 testing, we ran each iteration with a GeForce 7600GT installed into the PC, as well as with the integrated graphics. It goes without saying that with the integrated graphics, gaming is not going to be an exciting experience. However, for those looking to focus on daily tasks, this could be an important factor, so results with both graphics solutions were included.
When we compare the Photoshop 7 and Office XP SP2 results using the integrated graphics vs add-on graphics, the scores were marginally better with the add-in graphics card installed. In both cases, these differences equated to a 1.7% variation. When comparing the Mega mPC 945 with the Abit AL8, the AL8 still managed the best scores, but its leads were very small.
