System Builder Marathon, Q4 2012: $1,000 Enthusiast PC

Benchmark Results: Adobe CS6

We're also adding a number of applications from Adobe's Creative Suite 6, in addition to the processor-bound Photoshop test that you're accustomed to from past System Builder Marathons.

On top of that one, we have an OpenCL-accelerated Photoshop test able to help us derive graphics card compute performance. That's something we've been missing in the past, and it'll now be part of our evaluation criteria.

The classic Photoshop test is the only one we have comparison data for, and we can see the FX-8350 doing exceptionally well against Intel's Core i5. It even picks up some additional performance from our dialed-in overclock, subtle though it may be.
