Results: Adobe Creative Suite

System Builder Marathon, Q4 2013: $1600 Enthusiast PC

We run two scripted Photoshop benchmarks: one that is threaded and fully taxes our CPUs and another that leverages OpenCL acceleration to offload work to our graphics cards.

Our results make it pretty clear that the OpenCL-accelerated filters don't use more than a single GeForce GTX 770. Thus, the SLI-capable system turns in numbers that look a lot like what we reported last quarter.

Nvidia's GeForce GTX 770 isn't supported by the rest of our CS6-based suite, so the outcomes are decided by CPU performance.

Adobe does have CUDA and OpenCL support for Premiere Pro and After Effects though, so perhaps our move to Creative Cloud will start revealing differences between systems according to processor and graphics card specifications soon enough.
