Our overclocking efforts shave almost 30 seconds off the time needed to render one 1080p frame in 3ds Max.
The overclocked January/February PC once again just edges out last month's efforts when applying filters in Photoshop.
CPU overclocking doesn’t yield huge gains in AVG scans, but we still see the same ranking by clock speeds seen throughout our other applications and encoding tests.
We get strange results in WinRAR file compression as both our November and January/February Pentium E5200 systems had a much higher reduction of time when overclocked than the two seconds difference seen last month.
We finish off our application suite with WinZip file compression where the December PC is able to finally post a one second overclocked victory.
