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.
With only four points separating the fastest drive from the slowest in WorldBench, the Caviar Green 2TB doesn't really set itself apart from the rest of the field. The latest GreenPower offering has an identical overall score to the last two members of WD's eco-friendly line, putting it one point behind the 1.5TB Barracuda.

It's hard to get worked up about differences of just a few seconds in tests that take several minutes to complete. Among WorldBench's multimedia editing and encoding tests, we really only see the field spread in Premiere, where the 2TB Green sits comfortably in the middle of the pack.
