Light & Heavy Work Performance
In the light work test, we used benchmarking tool PC Mark 8® to test how much smoother web browsing, writing and photo editing was. For our heavy work test, we used Adobe Creative® Suite tools (InDesign, PhotoShop and Illustrator):
Alienware X51: The time it took to render images, applying filters and exporting files using Adobe's products went down from 18 to 14 seconds – that's an improvement of 21% after our performance tuning.
Sony Vaio 2011: on this aging Windows 7 laptop, everyday programs had a massive effect on the PC Mark 8 score. AVG PC TuneUp was able to recover it and boost that from a low 901 points up to 2196. In other words: it now ran more than twice as fast.
