Office XP SP2 and Photoshop 7.0
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 WorldBench 5.0'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 new EVGA nForce 680i SLI motherboard performed very well in WorldBench 5.0's Office XP and Photoshop performance modules. In the Office test, the 680i SLI put up the fastest time by about 3 seconds. In the Photoshop test, the 680i SLI was just slightly slower than the 975X Express - by 1 second to be exact - but both the 680i SLI and 975X Express were marginally faster than all of the other systems.
