Benchmark Results: Applications

System Builder Marathon, May '09: $600 Gaming PC

Our overclocking efforts shave 43% off the time needed to render one 1080P frame in 3ds Max. This one does respond well to threading, so we expect this build to trail in the performance/value comparison tomorrow.

Overclocking yields only an 18 second time reduction in AVG.

While far behind a quad-core processor, our 3.5 GHz E5200 completes this job 30 seconds faster than at stock speeds.

We finish off our application suite with WinZip and saw a solid 34% decrease in compression time.
