Office XP SP2 & Photoshop 7 Modules
With World Bench 5.0, we run a series of pre-configured scripts that we believe gives a well rounded view of system performance. The tests we focus on are Office XP SP2, Photoshop 7, 3D Studio Max and multi-tasking tests with Windows Media Encoder 9 and Mozilla.
Below we have the results from our first tests, World Bench 5's Office XP SP2 and Photoshop 7 modules, which are recorded in seconds. Lower times indicate better performance here, so the shorter the bar the better.
Like we saw in the PCMark05 CPU test, the Systemax Sabre was on par with our reference system running the Core 2 Extreme X6800. Even the E6700 system was on the same level as was the Athlon based Voodoo Omen.
With the World Bench 5 Photoshop test we saw our widest margins when comparing the Sabre with our reference X6800 test platform. This time we found the Sabre to be more on par with the Core 2 Duo E6700 test bed, with the X6800 running the test a full 16 seconds faster than the Sabre.
