PCMark can be used on desktop PC's,
Laptops and even Workstations and tests everyday
computing from home to office usage. PCMark specifically stresses
the CPU, memory subsystem, graphics subsystem, hard drives, WindowsXP GUI (if
WinXP is used), video performance and even laptop
seems to like the Mushkin PC3200 Special Edition memory
quite a lot. When we crank up the speed it gives it a
nice advantage over stock settings.
PCMark04 is the latest version of the popular
PCMark series. PCMark04 is an application-based benchmark and a premium tool for
measuring overall PC performance. It uses portions of real applications instead
of including very large applications or using specifically created code. This
allows PCMark04 to be a smaller installation as well as to report very accurate
scored higher simply because it has more memory bandwidth available to it.
Stock scores are in line with what we would expect when compared to other memory.
