HardwareHeaven Photoshop V3 Benchmark (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 HardwareHeaven members, head over here - Photoshop Benchmark.

We are using Photoshop CS4 64-bit for this testing.

13: Underpainting: 25.9 25.9
14: Palette: 22.8 22.8
15: Sponge: 22.1 22.9
Total 250.3 251.4

When applying various effects to an image in Photoshop we see that the results follow a similar trend to SiSoft Sandra. The 790FXTA just edges ahead of the Crosshair in shorter tests with a slightly larger gap in performance on larger filters such as smart blur.
