for measuring PC performance for home usage. PCMark04 supports the complete benchmark cycle allowing
you to benchmark your PC, view the resulting benchmark details, compare your results to those of others, and
finally analyze how to improve your PC performance.
PCs continue to improve at a dizzying pace. As each PC component CPU, system memory, graphics card,
hard disk, etc. increases in speed or capacity, it becomes increasingly difficult for the home user to evaluate
benefits of these changes. Software applications that may or may not take advantage of the latest hardware add
further to the confusion. The goal of PCMark is to solve this problem by providing an easy-to-use tool that
outputs easy-to-understand performance figures.
PCMark04s system score is a single, globally recognized number that represents the overall PC performance
for home usage. It also produces several component scores. The complete benchmark data available to the user
consists of results from 70 tests and over 300 pieces of detailed PC configuration information. As benchmark
results are useless in isolation, the user can take the next step and submit the results to Futuremarks Online
ResultBrowser (ORB). The ORB allows the user to compare the results to millions of other benchmark results in
Futuremarks benchmark databases. With this comparison, the strengths and weakness of the users PC are
- System Test Suite
- CPU Test Suite
- Memory Test Suite
- 2D and 3D Graphics Test Suite
- Hard Drive test Suite
