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.
In the WorldBench 5.0 tests, we found that all but one of the boards were operating at nearly the same level. The Intel chipset based Asus P5WD2 was consistently about 15 seconds slower than the other three. On the other hand, the MSI P4N Diamond finished the Photoshop module in the shortest amount of time (tied with the Asus P5N32-SLI) and was the third quickest in the Office XP Module, only off by two seconds
