PugetBench for Creators: a new desktop benchmarking app

1 minute read

Seattle-based Puget Systems has released PugetBench for Creators designed to benchmark professional workloads in the most common video editing, photography, VFX, and motion graphics applications.

Puget Systems’ new PugetBench for Creators is a tool designed to let creative users understand what’s happening in their systems and how well they handle workloads in various popular applications.

It runs directly on the host application instead of relying on artificial or synthetic workloads to give the most real-world results possible. That, says the company, means that users can depend on the PugetBench for Creators desktop app as an excellent way to ensure that systems are 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 users to see how their system compares to the latest available hardware overall and in specific tasks.

PugetBench benchmarks focus on the most popular and common workflows professionals use. They are also 100% free for end users, with a license only necessary for commercial use or advanced features like local logging and CLI support.

At launch it is available for Windows and MacOS, with benchmarks for Adobe Premiere Pro and Adobe Photoshop. Puget Systems will be releasing versions for Davinci Resolve and Adobe After Effects in the first half of 2024. Development of tests for new application features will continue in a separate beta track, with the main branch focusing on consistent scoring over time.

The software is available immediately as a free download for individual users. Commercial licenses are also available for larger organizations with multiple users.
