The Paget system provides several different benchmarks for testing your PC using automated real-world tasks in Adobe Creative Cloud. Some of them (like the one for Premiere Pro) are a bit complicated and can take a while to get up and running. But one of them – Pugetbench for Photoshop – is much easier.
PugetBench for Photoshop measures how fast your computer can perform various tasks, including mask refinement and gradients, as well as filter functions such as lens correction and noise reduction. Unlike some of Puget’s other benchmarks, Photoshop Benchmarks only require a quick plug-in to set up.
Note: This benchmark is not yet supported for the M1-native version of Photoshop.
- In the Creative Cloud desktop app, go to Stocks & Marketplaces > Plugins,
- search for Pugetbench for Photoshop and click establish, Make sure you have closed Photoshop before installing the plug-in.
- Once the plug-in is installed, open Photoshop.
- go for Window > Extensions > PugetBench for Photoshop, Enter your license code (if you have one) in the window that pops up, and configure any other settings you like.
- Click run benchmark,
PugetBench will take it from here. Make sure you don’t move the mouse while moving.
Once the benchmark is complete, your results will pop up in the PugetBench window. They will also be uploaded to the public PugetBench database (unless you have the paid version). On this page, you can compare your results with the results obtained from other PCs. Each system has an overall score as well as specific scores for GPU and filter tasks.
