Press Release: Puget Systems Launches PugetBench for Adobe Creative Cloud

PugetBench for Adobe Creative Cloud Includes Benchmark Support for Photoshop, Lightroom Classic, After Effects, and Premiere Pro

Auburn, WA (February 25, 2020) – Puget Systems ( today announced a new initiative – the PugetBench for Adobe® Creative Cloud®- to address the need for comprehensive, repeatable and consistent benchmark testing for the most popular applications used by creative professionals. These benchmarks are designed to thoroughly test many of Adobe's most popular applications using real-world projects and workflows, and the latest CPU, GPU, and other hardware components.

The Puget Systems benchmarks specifically developed for Adobe Creative Cloud are designed to thoroughly test on Adobe Photoshop®, Lightroom® Classic, After Effects® – including the AERender feature – and Adobe Premiere® Pro.

“The world of computing is vast and there is no way we can feasibly test every possible combination of hardware available. However, with the resources we have in our own labs, we have the ability and technical know-how to test as many combinations of system components as possible. We’re limited only to our imagination,” said Jon Bach, president of Puget Systems. “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 Puget Systems offers free versions of its benchmarks that allow individuals to evaluate the performance of their own systems, PugetBench for Adobe Creative Cloud will also provide specific commercial-use benchmarks that will include features that are often desired by those performing testing for commercial applications, such as system reviewers, hardware/software developers and workstation manufacturers.

Puget Systems uses these benchmarks while publishing their own articles that look at the performance of the latest CPU, GPU and other hardware components that creative professionals rely on in their professional workflows.

Puget Systems has developed five distinct benchmarks optimized for the Adobe Creative Cloud community, including:
