Adobe Photoshop Elements 4.0

For our Photoshop Elements test, we used a selection of 400 three mega-pixel photographs taken in a variety of surroundings using the batch file processing function in the Elements Editor. We performed all of the auto fixes, including Auto Levels, Auto Contrast, Auto Colour and Sharpen before resizing the image to 640x480 and saving as a high quality JPEG.

The P30 BIOS is still slower on both accounts, even though it's not by much even the E6700 on P23 is faster than the "better" E6750 on P30.

File Compression & Encryption:

Our file compression tests were split into two halves to cover a broad spectrum of performance. The first test we ran was to compress and encrypt the MPEG-2 source file from our video encoding test with the highest quality compression ratio. Secondly, we compressed and encrypted the folder of 400 photographs used in our Photoshop Elements test with the same compression settings.

Again, in large file compression both P23 results are faster than the P30 with the same CPU, however the E6700 is actually fractionally faster than the 1333MHz FSB E6750.
