About PassMark PerformanceTest 7.0

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

We run PassMark PerformanceTest 7.0 to evaluate four different areas of our system; coming down to the CPU, RAM, 2D Graphics, and 3D Graphics. Unsurprisingly, the Intel Core i7-3770K took a huge lead against the quad core, non-Hyper Threading second generation Core i5 processors, as this test is heavily multithreaded. With the rest of the tests, HT did not play a huge role, but the Ivy still managed to show Sandy who is the better one here. Again, I will let you take a peek at the charts above.
