We created the UL Procyon Photo Editing Benchmark for professional users who need relevant, standardized tools for assessing the photo editing performance of PCs and workstations for content creators.

UL Procyon benchmarks use real applications to test performance whenever possible. The UL Procyon Photo Editing Benchmark is available on both Windows PC's and Apple Mac computers. This multi-platform benchmark uses Adobe® Lightroom® Classic and Adobe® Photoshop® in a typical photo editing workflow that includes batch processing and image retouching.

Using relevant apps ensures that the benchmark score reflects the real-world performance of the whole system. The Photo Editing Benchmark is simple to set up and run. The Windows PC benchmark can be run from the UL Procyon app or the command line. The Apple Mac benchmark can be installed and run from the TestDriver Cloud UI or the command line.  

UL Procyon benchmarks use real applications whenever possible. Updates to those applications can affect your benchmark score. When comparing two or more systems, be sure to use the same version of each application on every system you test.
