Adobe Photoshop shows both notebooks performing comparably, which doesn't surprise us since they leverage the same processor and motherboard. Xotic PC’s four-DIMM memory array, which operates in a true dual-channel mode, provides no benefit here. Though, even a single channel of DDR3-1600 is probably adequate for most programs.
Autodesk 3ds Max and ABBYY FineReader appear to benefit from Xotic PC’s memory configuration, though none of our compression benchmarks are affected.
