Award winning, easy-to-use benchmarking software for Windows. It tests all of the computer's subsystems and provides benchmarked comparisons between the test PC and other standard baselines downloadable from the PassMark website.
Version: 9.0.1025PerformanceTest 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 it's 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 machine's 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 world's 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 user's 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.
Version 9.0.1025: - Changed the DX12 test so MSAA is disabled when less than 4GB of shared graphics memory is available - Fixed a crash and a bug that was preventing some results from being output when using the EXPORTHTML script command
