That's totally useless. You have neither provided any exact system info nor the actual crash details. And I don't see how a synthetic benchmark is even relevant for the matter at hand.

Most of that says that your video card driver is not loading correctly.
The last crash report shows the crash in Photoshop - but it also tells us that you have not installed any of the updates.
You should be on Photoshop 15.2.2 (aka 2014.2.2).
after extensive head banging, I think it may either be my copy of Win-dose or my SSD.
I am running some stress tests on the drive then a reformat, I will post back as soon as I have completed these, I know a few people on the net have had a similar problem so would be good to see an outcome on here
OK, I have replaced the SSD after I found a bunch of errors on there and re-installed Windows with a newer version and all seems to be well, it is not rendering as fast as I hoped
Not sure if this is me being impatient but I would have thought that a rig as expensive as mine would render 3D text on A4 landscape faster than 1 hour 24 :/
You say you are using two video cards connected in an SLI arrangement? Photoshop can be problematic with multiple GPUs
This is from the GPU FAQ
Are you using more than one video card?
Multiple video adapters can cause problems with GPU-accelerated or enabled features in Photoshop. It's best to connect two (or more) monitors into one video adapter. If you have to use more than one video adapter, make sure that they are the same make and model. Otherwise, crashes and other problems can occur in Photoshop.
Note: Using more than one video adapter does not enhance Photoshop's performance.
they are both the same make and model so should be fine, both GTX 980's, would this slow rendering?
