PCMark 8 is the latest version in our popular series of PC benchmarking tools.

Whether you are looking for long battery life, or maximum power, PCMark 8 helps you find the devices that offer the perfect combination of efficiency and performance for your needs.




It's quite apparent where the true power of the SSHD lies. In our WoW testing, we saw impressive results, with the SSHD finishing the trace at 59.4 seconds.




The Battlefield trace again showed the prowess of the Desktop SSHD with a score of 134.5 seconds.




This is where we see the trend continue. Photoshop under the light use trace had the SSHD at 116.9 seconds.




The heavy use trace put the SSHD in at 368.6 seconds.




The Desktop SSHD excelled even further in all the Microsoft application traces as you will soon see. However, we start with the Excel trace, where the drive came in at 9.3 seconds.




The PowerPoint trace came in at the same time as our previous Excel trace, 9.3 seconds.




The Microsoft Word workload allowed a 28.7 second time on the Desktop SSHD.
