PugetBench for Creators

PugetBench for Creators is designed to benchmark professional workloads in the most common video editing, photography, VFX, and motion graphics applications.

Why PugetBench?


PugetBench runs directly on the host application, instead of relying on artificial or synthetic workloads, to give the most real-world results possible. It is a good way to ensure that your system is running as expected, with no abnormal showdowns or issues.


Real-world workflows are broken down into their base aspects for detailed analysis. Testing in a standardized and repeatable manner allows you to see how your system compares to the latest available hardware overall and in specific tasks. Check out our user guide for more details.

Optimized for Pros

Our 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 command-line (CLI) support.
