Content Creation Performance
Content Creation Applications are the new performance drivers for CPUs; applications like Photoshop, Dreamweaver and media encoding applications are all examples that fall into the content creation category.
The performance paradigm is much different under content creation applications compared to business apps, as you will see from the performance results below:
Intel is still ahead in content creation applications; in this particular benchmark AMD does do much better if you apply a new media encoder patch after installing the benchmark, so you can choose whether or not to take these results at face value. We're not a fan of modifying benchmark configurations and would rather wait for the next version of Winstone to be released in order to depict a more accurate picture of performance here (we have many more content creation benchmarks for you to look at to help you decide today however).
