Benchmark Results: Applications
Our overclocking efforts reduced the time needed to render one 1080p frame in 3D Studio Max down to well under one minute. Again, this is another application better suited for a quad-core CPU, so expect larger gains in the SBMs to come.
The overclocked $625 PC finishes applying filters in Photoshop 41% quicker than at stock clock speeds.
CPU overclocking doesn’t yield huge gains in AVG scans, and with this month’s less-than-stellar overclocking, we see only an 8% reduction in time.
Our clock speed increase delivered just a two second performance increase in WinRAR-file compression.
We finish off our application suite with WinZip file compression where overclocking reduced job time by just over 30 seconds.
