Overall System Testing
To test the overall system performance we are first going to start with PCMark 8. We will be running the “Home”, “Work”, and “Creative” benchmarks.
The next test is PassMark, which will run a full system benchmark.
To get a good idea of memory performance we run AIDA64’s cache and memory benchmark.
For processor performance we run SiSoftware’s Sandra Processor Arithmetic and Processor Multi-Media benchmarks.
Another way to get a good idea of processor performance is the new Cinebench 20 benchmark.
Finally we run CrystalDiskMark on the Kingston A1000 drive installed in the system.
