Benchmarks: PCMark04

PCMark04 Source: FutureMark

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 whole applications or using specifically created code. This allows PCMark04 to maintain a smaller installation size while still giving accurate results.

The overall and CPU scores are good, but the memory numbers are on the low side as PCMark04 indicates.

Things are very even in the AMD world, but we could not get the ECS PF88 Extreme to finish the memory portion of the test in PCMark04 no matter what we tried.
