"User friendly benchmarking tool with lots of features"
+ Interface is neat, clean and eye-pleasing. Gives advanced system info
+ Benchmarking tests are relatively quick to run
+ Easy to use, no trouble installing or getting started
+ Baselines downloadable from within the app
- Video tests don't look as amazing as other benchmark tools on the market
- Hard to copy and paste between some screens
Performancetest has a lot of features and benchmarks that cover all the hardware in your machine. It's really easy to use, the menu items are clear and I like the intuitive way it displays system information when you hover over parts of the Main screen with your mouse. It also seems to be well supported by the developers with a good help file and online tech support. You can also download baselines to compare your machine with from the program itself which is pretty useful.
Two things really make this product stand out from the others - the first is the advanced CPU physics test which I've seen many game demos of, but is really a first for a benchmarking app. Secondly, it packs a big punch for 11mb of download. 3Dmark06 is 580mb in comparison! This is great when I need to download something to benchmark a rig quickly.
Some of the video tests look a bit dated, but overall they do the job. Recommended.
