Overall System & CPU Testing
To start our testing we are going to go with PCMark 8, we will be concentrating on the Work, Creative, and Home benchmarks.
We also ran PCMark 7, which gives you a good idea of overall system performance.
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.
