PerformanceTest enables anyone to objectively benchmark their computer by putting it through six test suites comprising of twenty-eight unique tests each carefully designed to cover all aspects of computing performance. It can help you assess if your computer is performing at its peak whether its time to upgrade or to measure the performance of different machine components. In a single mouse-click you can obtain the PassMark Rating an overall score for your machines unique configuration for use in comparison with other machines.PerformanceTest comes with a number of built-in baselines for machine comparison. With an internet connection you can also search through comparison baselines supplied by one of the worlds largest component baseline repositories at PassMark.com. These baselines can be freely downloaded saved and compared with your machine from the PerformanceTest interface. Experienced users will appreciate the ability to create their own specialized test scenarios to aid in conducting any in-depth assessment of hardware behavior. From the advanced test window all component tests can be thoroughly customized to suit a users needs. Results can then be exported to a graph for quick reference or to a HTML report containing detailed system information and snapshots showing performance over the duration of the test. Among other new features Version 8 of PerformanceTest boasts a redesigned user interface that presents users with detailed system information and test results in a dynamic and interactive way. Our new Visualised Physics engine gives users a chance to experiment with a wide range of customizable environmental settings (such as gravity air resistance explosions and more) to create fun physics-based simulations which demonstrate our new Physics CPU test. PC gamers video editors and developers will also like the new DirectX 10 3D test which objectively ranks all the latest and greatest DirectX 10 compatible video cards.
- Fixed a silent error that could occur if OpenCL test launched but failed to run- Made some changes to the chart cache updating so there is a shorter timeout- Fixed a crash that could occur when a gauge chart tooltip was displayed
