Sysmark 2004

Sysmark2004 is a very common benchmark used to measure a system's potential in performance.  It goes through long and grueling tests, including compression, decompression, and office intensive programs.  The AW8 really performed badly in this test.  For those of you who are unfamiliar with Sysmark and the scores, a difference of 5 points is considered to be a HUGE difference.  Now we consider the AW8 trailing by 12 points.  That is rather bad.


3DMark is probably the overclocker's favorite benchmark.  Unlike 3DMark2003, which stresses mainly the video card, 3DMark2001SE tests all of the system's main components.  Increasing the CPU speed, memory speed, and video card speeds will result in higher final scores.


The PCMark2004 system benchmark puts the entire system to work.


PCMark2002 is older than PCMark2004, but still very similar.
