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.
The VR150 gets off to a somewhat disappointing start in WorldBench, where it scores lower than our engineering sample. One point isn't much, though.
Multimedia editing and encoding

Final firmware hasn't changed the VelociRaptor's performance much across WorldBench's multimedia editing and encoding tests. The VR150 gains a few seconds here and loses a couple there, but scores are pretty tight overall.
