Overall System & CPU Tests
All of our overall system and CPU tests are run with software and benchmarks that you can download yourself and compare your system with. We will start things off with the brand new PCMark 10 benchmark.
Next we have PCMark 8 where we will be concentrating on the “Work”, “Creative”, and “Home” benchmarks.
For CPU-specific tests we are going to run SiSoftware’s Sandra Processor Arithmetic and Processor Multi-Media tests.
Finally we have CINEBENCH. CINEBENCH uses a test scenario that makes use of all of your system’s processing power to render a photorealistic 3D scene (from the viral “No Keyframes” animation by AixSponza). This scene makes use of various algorithms to stress all available processor cores.
