DH Photoshop Benchmark V2 (64-Bit)

Most people are tired of running 3dmark and Pcmark and similar benchmarks, while these are visually attractive benchmarks they are not in many cases indicative of real world situations, this is not the case with Photoshop. This is a real world application with a myriad of uses appealing to all users from digital photographers to budding graphic designers. It is also a wonderful test of all round system performance, specifically memory bandwidth and CPU processing power. For full information and links to download this bench for yourself and to compare scores with other Driver Heaven members, head over HERE. We are using Photoshop CS4 64-Bit for this testing.

All of the boards tested for this review provide excellent results and each would be an ideal choice for anyone looking to build a system for Photoshop use as well as tasks such as gaming. It should also be noted that the BloodRage not only wins this particular roundup, it is actually a higher performer than any motherboard in our previous X58 review.
