System Builder Marathon, Q4 2013: $800 Gaming PC

Results: Adobe Creative Suite

Last quarter, the FX-6300 easily trumped Intel's dual-core Core i3 in threaded CPU-intensive tasks. But today's $800 machine, armed with twice as many physical IA cores, dominates in Adobe's Creative Suite 6. It also does really well in the single-threaded Acrobat X test we use.

This will likely be the last time you see some of these benchmarks, as our suite already transitioned to Acrobat XI and Creative Cloud.
