WorldBench 5.0: Office XP SP2 & Photoshop 7 Modules
With WorldBench 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 multiprocessing tests with Windows Media Encoder 9 and Mozilla.
Below we have the results from our first tests, WorldBench 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.
With the Office XP SP2 module, the Systemax Wildcat performed on par with our reference system running the same Athlon 64 FX-60 processor. To be more specific, the Systemax Wildcat lagged behind our in-house test bed by only 3 seconds. The Wildcat clearly outperformed the Pentium EE 965 and Athlon 64 X2 4800+ based systems, however.
With World Bench 5's Photoshop 7 module, we saw a similar trend to the Office XP SP2 testing. In this case, the Systemax Wildcat trailed our Athlon 64 FX-60 reference system by 7 seconds while topping the Athlon 64 X2 4800+ by 9 seconds.
