Testing – Futuremark / PhotoShop
Next I ran my favorite Futuremark benchmarks, PCMark05, PCMark Vantage, 3DMark06, and 3DMark Vantage.
For real world Testing I used Driver Heaven’s Photoshop Bench, a utility that runs a series of filters on a large .jpg, the scores are determined by how many seconds it takes to complete each filter operation. There are 15 steps, many of them take only a few seconds or less, so I’m showing some of the longer ones to demonstrate the performance gain from the overclock.
