Hardware Heaven Photoshop Benchmark V3 (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 Hardware Heaven members, head over here.

We are using Photoshop CS5 64-bit for this testing.

Photoshop relies heavily on CPU speed as well as memory performance when achieving the fastest scores in our benchmark. The presence of 6 cores on our CPU isnt fully utilised by the software but still we end up with some incredible scores, the Rampage 3 Extreme performing best with the P6X58D-E bringing up the rear, just 1.5 seconds behind.
