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.




We again see little difference between the two Extreme Edition CPUs here with the newer 3970X sneaking ahead sometimes and other times it falling just behind due to the 100MHz difference in clock speeds doing very little and fluctuation being thrown into the equation.




PassMark memory testing has always been interesting as it's favored the quad channel setup over AIDA64. Here you can see strong performance from our 3970X EE setup and even strong performance when we overclock.
