New Desktop App Designed to Benchmark Professional Workloads in Most Common Video Editing, Photography, VFX, and Motion Graphics Applications
Puget Systems has announced the launch of PugetBench for Creators, a new desktop application developed by the Puget Systems Labs team and designed to benchmark professional workloads in the most common video editing, photography, VFX and motion graphics applications.
PugetBench for Creators runs directly on the host application, instead of relying on artificial or synthetic workloads, to give the most real-world results possible. Users can rely on the PugetBench for Creators desktop app as a good way to ensure that systems are running as expected, with no abnormal showdowns or issues.
At launch, PugetBench for Creators is available for Windows and MacOS, with benchmarks for Adobe Premiere Pro and Adobe Photoshop. Puget Systems will be releasing versions for Davinci Resolve and Adobe After Effects in the first half of 2024. Details will be announced at that time.
PugetBench: How Does it Work?
With PugetBench, real-world workflows are broken down into their base aspects for detailed analysis. Testing in a standardized and repeatable manner allows users to see how their system compares to the latest available hardware overall and in specific tasks.
PugetBench benchmarks are focused on the most popular and common workflows used by professionals. They are also 100% free for end users, with a license only necessary for commercial use or advanced features like local logging and CLI support.
Adobe Premiere Pro and Photoshop Benchmarks Exiting Beta
Alongside the PugetBench for Creators application, Puget Systems also announces the exit from beta for the Adobe Premiere Pro and Adobe Photoshop benchmarks with the release of the full 1.0 versions. This milestone assures users a stable and consistent benchmarking experience, promising testing and scoring consistency across future 1.x builds.
Development of tests for new application features will continue in a separate beta track, with the main branch focusing on consistent scoring over time.
