WorldBench overall performance
WorldBench uses scripting to step through a series of tasks in common Windows applications. It then produces an overall score. WorldBench also spits out individual results for its component application tests, allowing us to compare performance in each. We'll look at the overall score, and then we'll show individual application results.
Our first look at the RE2's performance shows the drive neck and neck with its SE16 desktop counterpart at the head of the pack, but do any of WorldBench's individual application tests separate the two?

Not through WorldBench's multimedia editing and encoding tests. It's worth noting that few of these apps separate the field, and the RE2 turns in the quickest times in three of four tests.
