Office XP SP2 and Photoshop 7
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 MSI mPC 51PV performed relatively well in Worldbench 5.0's Office and Photoshop benchmark modules. The SFF PC finished within a few seconds of the full-sized Asus nForce 590 SLI based motherboard, and even outpaced the Pentium Extreme Edition 965. The Core 2 Duo powered rig was in a league of its own, but by now, you've all heard the Core 2 Duo's dominant performance before.
