PCMark 8 v2.2.282

This is a minor update. Benchmark scores are not affected.


  • SystemInfo module updated to 4.30 for improved hardware compatibility with X99 platforms.


  • Fixed Adobe Creative Cloud 2014 compatibility issue that prevented After Effects test from running.

Professional Edition only

  • The command line application now checks software requirements only when needed. This enables you to run benchmarks on systems that do not meet all the requirements, for example, running the Storage benchmark on a virtualized system without DirectX 11 support.
  • New command line --pass option can be used to set the number of benchmark passes. See command line guide for details.
