As I am sure you know, this is basically a test of processor speed and MB - as are most tests of this nature including the Driverheaven one. Most CPUs over a few years old will not score well. In today's world an i7 at 3.2 is really not that fast. Laptops are notorious for being slow. Too much danger of heat buildup.

100% agree. It also depends on what I7. HT for example increases speed by 20%. Top Sandy Bridge CPUs are still pretty fast. Ivy Bridge is not much faster. New Haswell only faster in some operations. But according to few sites it is slower than 3930K in PS6 even though it runs faster.


On this one 4770k running at 3.5Ghz is faster than 3930K at 3.2Ghz but my 3930K at 4.5Ghz is 2 seconds faster than 4770K.

Open new file 8x10 300 DPI

Filter: Add noise, 400% Gaussian, Mono.

Filter: Blur, Radial Blur. Amount 100, Best, Spin.

My computer runs it in 6 seconds flat.

Second test: Driverheaven Photoshop Bench V3

My result 118.5 seconds.

D800 files are pretty big so I build this computer to handle the workload.
