PCMark 8 arrives on Steam
October 21, 2013
PCMark 8 is now 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. It's a complete benchmark for anyone who wants to get the more out of their hardware.
PCMark 8 includes five new benchmark tests, each designed around a typical use scenario. Choose the benchmark that best matches your needs, or run all five for a complete picture of your PC's performance. Each benchmark produces a score you can use to compare systems as well as detailed results you can use to gain a deep understanding of system performance.
The Home, Creative, and Work tests reflect the most common computer uses: 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 is ideal 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. When you buy PCMark 8 from Steam you get easy installation and automatic updates. You can move your Advanced Edition key freely between the Steam and the stand-alone version. Please see our Steam FAQ for further details.
