Are you looking for a gaming rig capable to run No Man's Sky? Or are you more of a Photoshop kind of person?

If you want to select your next console based on how it runs that piece of software, you're at the right place! below you'll find a list of popular programs, apps, and games. Each of them offers 3 options based on how hardcore your needs are:

Compatibility ratings

Compatibility for software is determined based on their makers' recommendations. Here's what to expect from different ratings:

rating

For systems meeting the software's minimal requirements.
This means the software will run but it might get slow when tasks grow in complexity.

rating

For systems meeting the software's recommended specs.
This is what most people will need.

rating

For systems exceeding recommended specifications.
This leaves some headroom for things such as mods, plug-ins or simply to complete tasks of uncommon complexity.

Different companies have different performance expectation for minimum and recommended specs. As a result, there can be quite a bit of variation in performance from one program to the next but this should still be a good reference point.
