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.
Looking at Performance test we can see some strong improvements over both the 3570k and the 2600k with some of the best gains being seen in the Floating Point testing. The only setups that are able to come out ahead are the more expensive Sandy Bridge-E ones.
Memory performance on the other hand is pretty similar with the same difference being seen in our 3570k testing which sees a strong write improvement when comparing to the 2600k on the Z68 platform.
