Driver Heaven Photoshop V3 Benchmark (64Bit)

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.

In our Photoshop benchmark the results show that AMD are making steady progress with the total time improving with each high end CPU release. We are still not at the level of Intel’s Core i7 yet but it is getting harder to tell the difference between a high end AMD CPU and the Intel 920 in day to day use.
