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 an essential tool for anyone who wants to get the most 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.
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.
