PCMark 8 Released on Steam


Futuremark has just released the PCMark 8 benchmark tool and it will soon be available to download and buy from Steam.

PCMark 8 combines performance benchmarking, battery life testing, a dedicated benchmark for SSDs and HDDs, and real-world tests using popular applications from Adobe and Microsoft.

The suite includes five new benchmark tests. Each benchmark produces a score you can use to compare systems as well as detailed results.

The Home, Creative, and Work tests reflect the most common computer usage patterns - light home use, demanding media and entertainment activities, and typical office productivity tasks. The Applications benchmark is a real-world test of system performance using popular applications from Adobe Creative Suite and Microsoft Office.

The Storage benchmark has been designed for testing SSDs, HDDs and hybrid drives, highlighting the real-world performance differences between devices. You can use the Home, Creative, Work and Applications benchmarks to test battery life too.

PCMark 8 costs $49.95, but can be bought from Steam for $37.49 (25% off) for a limited time. Keys bought from Steam are interchangable with the standalone version.
