PCMark is a multipurpose benchmark, suited for benchmarking all kinds of PCs, from laptops to workstations, as well as across multiple Windows operating systems. This easy-to-use benchmark makes professional strength benchmarking software available even to novice users. PCMark consists of a series of tests that represent common tasks in home and office programs. PCMark also covers many additional areas outside the scope of other MadOnion.com benchmarks.

 

 

The trend is really set by now and continues to be consistent, P965 vs. P35 yields no real difference, DDR-3 at 1066MHz at 7-7-7-21 continues to get beat by DDR-2 at 5-5-5-15 but DDR-3 at 7-5-5-10 manages to be the fastest out of the three setups. The increased FSB and memory speed again shows us roughly a 10% gain in performance.
