Other Applications: Photoshop, WinRAR
The results obtained in a popular image editing application from Adobe are quite logical. The only thing we would like to point out here is that AMD processors fell significantly behind due to specific software optimizations.
Intel CPUs participating in our today’s test session occupied pretty familiar positions on the results chart. Core 2 Duo E7000 family outperformed Core 2 Duo E4700, while Pentium DC E5200 left no chances to the previous generation Pentium DC. So, this part of our test session once again proved how progressive Wolfdale core is: every CPU with this core performs faster. Moreover, Intel’s price policy makes new processors priced as low as the old ones, which will definitely please potential buyers who will be able to get higher performance for the same price.
However, the archiving test in WinRAR showed an unusual twist: AMD processors suddenly performed really impressive. It is the only test where Athlon 64 X2 6000+ outperforms both Core 2 Duo E7000 processors.
