Benchmarks: PCMark04, PCMark05

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.

PCMark04 is a multi-threaded benchmark, and here we find the Albatron PX915SLI motherboard comes in with the most conservative figures. The numbers are not too bad given the different chipset ages, but evidently lower than that of dual core test systems.

PCMark05 is a premium tool for measuring both normal home use and simple 3D performance of the latest PC hardware. There are 11 system tests - each one is designed to represent a certain type of PC usage. By running these tests, PCMark05 stresses the components in a similar manner as they are stressed in normal home usage.

PCMark05 is another multi-threaded benchmark. The Albatron PX915SLI does not do exceptionally well against the competition, mainly because the i915PL chipset is limited to single core Pentium 4 processors and DDR memory, not DDR-2 RAM.
