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 AVPC performed well in our PCMark05 benchmark, especially in the CPU and hard drive tests - two very important areas for any decent HTPC. The memory test wasn't quite as good and the graphics test was way down, but considering that the system only uses onboard graphics, this was to be expected and doesn't impact its ability to function as a media center.
