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.

When testing Photoshop performance we see that the extra cache on the Phenom 2 X4 810 makes quite a difference in this test. The Phenom finishes nearly ten seconds ahead of the Athlon 2 with tests such as Extrude showing real benefits from use of the L3 cache.
