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.

For a long time Photoshop performance favoured Intel and AMD CPUs were never really able to compete. To a degree that is still the case as the Core i7-975 results show, it completes the test 20 seconds faster than a higher clocked Phenom 2 CPU but is of course more expensive. The lower speed 920 CPU falls behind the AMD chip, as do the 700 and 800 series but it does take a considerable clockspeed advantage on the AMD chip to achieve this. (3.4GHz on AMD vs. 2.6-2.9GHz on the Intel chips.)
