PCMark04

Editors' Review

by   / February 27, 2009

This elaborate application determines your PC performance through a battery of benchmark tests, but numerous functionality issues mar its overall performance. The sleek, trouble-free interface promptly displays basic system information, including your CPU and memory specifications. The System Information entails benchmark testing and generates a comprehensive listing of hardware information. PCMark04 differs from similar programs by utilizing third-party applications to aid testing. It is preloaded with a couple of assessments sets to determine hardware efficiency. Unfortunately, users can't select particular tests to perform. For that reason, PCMark04 took quite a while to complete the full battery of tests. During our tests the program repeatedly failed to complete the series of assessments. It instantly aborts whenever it reaches test eight of 10. Despite its freeware status, some features such as CPU, HDD diagnostic, and submission of results for comparison, aren't enabled during trial. Additionally, its 35MB download size will annoy many potential users. All things considered, PCMark04 still makes a decent choice for anyone concerned with monitoring their system's performance. It just won't reach its goal of being the complete diagnostic tool.
