Although it's otherwise a well-designed freeware system benchmark tool, it suffers slightly from a testing error. System Force 3's bright and simple interface design uses tooltips to direct program operation. The simple Help file gives novice users more than enough information to understand it.
System Force 3 opens with a very simple screen. You merely need to press the benchmark button to start tests. The program requests you close all other programs. Then the app moves forward on its own, and you simply sit back as the tests run. After a few seconds, the results screen displays simple graph information for CPU usage and frames per second. A nice touch is the plain English comment about the speed of your system.
An additional tab displays a series of system information pages. The utility displays simple performance, system, user, drives, printers, graphics, and Internet connection information. Our testers found problems with the drive information tab. In some cases drives were missing or no drives displayed.
This freeware version of System Force 3 disables some tests, but the remaining functions are informative and helpful for experienced users, even with the missing drive information.
