Benchmark Results: Productivity

Our second seven-way tie produces an Adobe Photoshop performance chart that’s again arranged alphabetically.

ASRock falls behind in 3ds Max. We retested several times and found these results to be consistent, but unexplainable.

ASRock and MSI both fall behind in WinZip, again consistent through several tests and again without any visible cause or errors.
