DriverHeaven Photoshop Benchmark V2
The best way to measure performance is by using real programs. The problem, though, is creating a methodology using real software that provides accurate results. For Photoshop CS2 there is a methodology created by the folks at GamingHeaven that is very accurate. Their script applies a series of 12 filters to a sample image and we wrote down the time taken for each filter to run. At the end, we have the results for each individual filter and we simply added them up to give the total time taken to run the 12 filters from GamingHeaven batch.
Check out the results below.
The results below are given in seconds, so the lower the number the better.
The AMD CPU accomplished all the tasks in 276.55 seconds, while it took the Intel CPU 288.45 seconds to perform the same tests, i.e., it took he AMD processor 11.9 seconds less to complete the test.
