CPU, Memory, and Storage Testing
Moving on to CPU testing we start with Sandra’s Processor Arithmetic and Processor Multimedia benchmarks.
GeekBench is a great benchmark to gauge CPU performance. It gives you a score for both single-core and multi-core performance.
To test memory we use AIDA 64’s cache & memory benchmark.
We tested both drives using CrystalDiskMark. The solid state drive is one the left and the 7200 RPM hard drive is on the right.
