CPU Test Information

CPU Benchmark results (“Baselines”) were gathered from users’ submissions to the PassMark web site as well as from internal testing. PerformanceTest conducts eight different tests and then averages the results together to determine the CPU Mark for a system.

To ensure that the full CPU power of a PC system is realized, PerformanceTest runs each CPU test on all available CPUs. Specifically, PerformanceTest runs one simultaneous CPU test for every logical CPU (Hyper-threaded); physical CPU core (dual core) or physical CPU package (multiple CPU chips). So hypothetically if you have a PC that has two CPUs, each with dual cores that use hyper-threading then PerformanceTest will run eight simultaneous tests.

The following list describes each of the tests performed. In all cases a higher score is better.

Comparing Version 8 Results with Version 9

Due to the addition of new tests and technologies in some cases the test results have changed between version 8 and version 9. In these cases the version 8 baseline will be noted with a (PT 8) tag after the baseline name. These tests and the reason for their change are:
