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.

 

 

Memory performance in PCMark is right where we expect it to be. At the SPD timings the two kits are almost identical, it is not until we tighten the timings as well as overclock that we get higher performance.
