Editors' Review

+

There isn't much use to a benchmarking tool that doesn't describe its benchmarks or give users the chance to save results. Those were just the major issues we had with Computer Analyzer. To install this tool, your system must have at least DirectX 9c. The interface is less than attractive. There isn't a manual or help file included in this package.

It's easy to operate Computer Analyzer, though. You merely press Test and watch as various text lines are printed to your screen. Basically, the application lists items your computer supports. Display modes, rendering, buffers, culling, fogging methods, shaders, texture sizes, drawing speeds, and other items are checked. You can't save results to any sort of file. You can't even select results and save to the clipboard. At the end of tests, you click a Calculate Score option to get number. Our test systems received different scores each time they were checked.

While this is freeware, that's no excuse for the problems inherent in this tool. Benchmarks are not explained. There is no method to check common scores based on processor or brand. The final score appears almost random. Don't bother with this tool; it can't tell you anything of use about your PC.

"Error"

March 27, 2008  |  By Holybride

 |  Version: Computer Analyzer 1.1

Cons

After I installed it I cannot use it. It popped up a message box saying that it required DirectX 9.0c December 2005 or later.

My computer is old and other softwares that I've tried don't required such DirectX like this one.

This is ridiculous. What a waste of time.

"Worthless"

August 26, 2007  |  By randysvh

 |  Version: Computer Analyzer 1.1

Pros

Gives a relative value. Meaning or relative to anything????

Cons

prints out a few details about the system capability, but then eventually gives a score. The score is not compared to anything, and has no reference.

"Useless"

January 01, 2007  |  By Kremmen

 |  Version: Computer Analyzer 1.1

Pros

none - didn't install

Cons

Despite being supposed to run on Win9x, it won't even install without DirectX 9. It's ludicrous to have to install other major packages just to run a benchmarking suite.

"Very good, simple, and free program!"

January 19, 2006  |  By Gmaildownload

 |  Version: Computer Analyzer 1.0

Pros

It will tell you pretty much everything you want to know about your computer and even scores it. And even if it doesn't score correctly on older computers, it still works.

And for the below reviews it doesn't cost any money, it may have before but it's free now.

Cons

It's a little slow, but it is going through alot of tests.
