PCMark 8 - Creative Test

 

Version and / or Patch Used: 2.0.228

 

PCMark 8 comes with various benchmarks to assess PC performance in key areas. As we are testing performance desktop systems, we utilize the Creative Test, non-CL accelerated.

This is the first benchmark where we have included results using both the review configuration and our "upgraded" 290X version.

 

As you can see, the lack of an SSD and a low performing processor has impacted scores significantly compared to the Digital Storm Vanquish and AVADirect Quiet Gaming PC.

 

You can also see that adding in the ASUS Radeon 290X does provide a nice boost to the score, though it still fails to break 3,000 points in a test where all-around performance is paramount.
