Intel Haswell (Core i5 4670K & i7 4790K) versus Ryzen & Coffee Lake: worth upgrading?

Is your Haswell build ready for an upgrade? 86 tests provide the answer!


Benchmarks: content creation (Adobe Lightroom, Photoshop and Premiere)

In order to analyze the content creation performance of the processor, we conduct various tests with Adobe software.

In Adobe Lightroom 6 we export a large number of RAW photos to JPEG with various effects. In Adobe Photoshop CC 2017 we do two tests. First of all, we measure how long it takes to apply a large number of commonly used edits on a large image, using a script. In a second test we measure how long it takes to convert a number of high resolution photos into a panorama. In our Adobe Premiere Pro 2017 benchmarks, we determine how long it takes to export a fragment of Hardware Info TV in 4K resolution. This makes use of four source channels each with color correction and various other effects.

In Adobe software, the Core i5 4670K is about as fast as the AMD Ryzen 3 1300X. The Core i7 4790K performs slightly worse in more single-threaded tests than the Core i3 8100, while in multi-threaded tests it performs slightly better.
