KitGuru Photoshop Benchmark V1(4)

For as long as I can remember enthusiasts around the world have been keen to see how their systems perform with many commercially available benchmarks from such companies as Futuremark. While these applications are extremely useful to a wide audience sometimes it can be helpful to focus on a ‘real world’ application which many of us use on an almost daily basis. This is why I wrote the KitGuru Photoshop Benchmark and clearly many people think the same as it has had over 2 million downloads in the years I have been supporting it.

We recorded our fastest ever time with the 980X at 4.61ghz and shattered all our records breaking the 500 second barrier. After running the test on a Core 2 Duo laptop and recording over 1000 seconds you can see the difference in bandwidth and processor speed. If Adobe had managed to get true multithreaded filtering performance in CS5 the results would be even more impressive, however as this is a real world test, we can only record what a user can expect.
