Benchmark Results: Productivity
Adobe Photoshop favors Intel's architecture, setting the current six-core AMD behind even at similar overclock rates.
Our 3ds Max results are almost a perfect reflection of clock speed, with the current system falling slightly behind.
AVG seems to reverse the trend. Perhaps it’s all in the initialization, but we’re happy to see the new system take at least one lead.
Perhaps independent developers are more likely to use AMD? Last quarter's system takes a big lead in WinRAR, while this quarter's system almost catches up in 7-Zip.
