Adobe After Effects is threaded, but we'd typically expect the clock rate differences and core counts of our two processors to have a more dramatic effect. Fortunately, plenty of experience with this application tells us that it's also very sensitive to memory capacity as a result of QuickTime.
Photoshop isn't as memory-constrained, so we see the larger delta we were expecting surface in that metric. Employing OpenCL helps mitigate this somewhat, as each setup's discrete GeForce GPU accelerates the workload.
Premiere is processor-bound, and we see the quad-core CPU decimate the dual-core chip.
Our Acrobat benchmark isn’t threaded, so Dell’s lead is limited to differences in CPU frequency.
