PugetBench for Adobe Creative CloudWritten on February 25, 2020 by Matt Bach
These benchmarks are still in development. While the purpose of the benchmarks will remain the same, the specific way they run (and what they test) is likely to change. If you need long-term consistency between benchmark results, we recommend waiting until the benchmarks are out of beta.

PugetBench for Adobe Creative Cloud - Suite License

All licenses are per technician and valid for the current beta and future 1.x versions.
Adobe's Creative Cloud suite includes industry leading applications for graphic design, photography, video editing, and a host of other creative workflows. Even though these applications are all developed by Adobe, each utilizes the hardware in a computer in very different and unique ways. Because of this, it can be extremely difficult to determine exactly what hardware will give the end user the best possible performance.
To address the need for comprehensive, repeatable, and consistent benchmark testing, Puget Systems is developing benchmarks that are designed to thoroughly test many of Adobe's most popular applications using real-world projects and workflows. In fact, these are the same benchmarks we use to publish regular hardware articles looking at the performance of the latest CPU, GPU, and other hardware components.
The world of computing is vast, however, and there is no way we can feasibly test every possible combination of hardware available. Since we care so deeply about improving and furthering both the workstation and content creation industries as a whole, we have decided to make many of our benchmarks available for public download. While we do have free versions that allow individuals to evaluate the performance of their own systems, we also have specific commercial use versions that include features that are often desired by those performing testing for commercial applications (system reviewers, hardware/software developers, workstation manufacturers, etc.)
