Fast, easy to use, PC speed testing and benchmarking. PassMark PerformanceTest allows you to objectively benchmark a PC using a variety of different speed tests and compare the results to other computers. Twenty-eight standard benchmark tests are available in six test suites plus there are seven advanced testing windows for custom benchmarking.
Firing up performance test we can see some strong performance across the board when compared to our i5 2500k. Compared to the 2600k we can see that the overall CPU Mark is down by a fair bit, but floating point has jumped massively compared to the 2600k, while Physics has also seen a slight boost in performance.
Looking at the memory side of things we can see that overall there's some very strong performance with write performance being increased on the new Z77 platform compared to the older Z68.
