Content Creation and Business Winstone 2001

The higher end programs of the Content Creation Winstone test here take advantage of the XP features again and come out 12% faster than the 1.4 GHz Thunderbird. The Duron is still fairly far back in term of content creation performance. Programs used in the benchmark include Adobe Photoshop and Premier. I am also including Sysmark 2001 tests that are similar to Content Creation Winstone on another page.
The Athlon XP processor does not enjoy such a high margin of victory in this benchmark, coming only about 6% faster than the 1.4 GHz Athlon. This test that is based more along the lines of Office 2000 products and things like text documents and spreadsheets doesn’t require all the power and enhancements that AMD has implemented in the XP QuantiSpeed core.
