Page 8 - Benchmark: PassMark PerformanceTest 6.1

Fast, easy to use, PC speed testing and benchmarking. PassMark PerformanceTest allows you to objectively benchmark a PC using a variety of different speed tests and compare the results to other computers.

Twenty-eight standard benchmark tests are available in six test suites plus there are seven advanced testing windows for custom benchmarking.

- CPU tests Mathematical operations, compression, encryption, SSE, 3DNow! instructions and more
- 2D graphics tests Drawing lines, bitmaps, fonts, text, and GUI elements
- 3D graphics tests Simple to complex DirectX 3D graphics and animations
- Disk tests Reading, writing and seeking within disk files
- Memory tests Allocating and accessing memory speed and efficiency
- CD / DVD test Test the speed of your CD or DVD drive

PassMark's PerformanceTest 6.1's results generally favor the Core 2 Extreme QX9650, but they are pretty close nonetheless. A quick glance at our results above show that the QX9650 scored 5.4%, 7.5%, and a statistical tie for CPU, 2D Graphics, and 3D Graphics, respectively. Unsurprisingly, the Core i5-750's integrated memory controller really came into play as it showed a 10% higher score than the QX9650 in the Memory benchmark.
