Start64!PerformanceTest is a fast, easy to use software benchmarking tool that allows everybody to quickly assess the performance of their PC and compare it to a number of standard 'baseline' computer systems.

PerformanceTest allows you to,

  • Find out if your PC is performing at its best.
  • Compare the performance of your machine to similar machines.
  • Measure the effect of configuration changes and upgrades.
  • Avoid paying big bucks for poor performance.
  • Make objective independent measurements on which to base your purchasing decision.


PassMark PerformanceTest 64bit version

This program is designed to be run from a CD or USB memory stick. This means you can take it with you when you go out shopping for a new or second hand PC. The other major advantage is the built in ‘baseline’ results that enable a reasonable comparison to be made between computer systems. Additional new baselines can also be downloaded from PerformanceTest or from PassMark's Web site (

The results are presented as easy to read bar charts so that you don’t need to spend hours studying the number to know the result.

Timing for the tests is done using high resolution timers, which are accurate to approximately 1 millionth of a second on most PC’s.

Of course for a measurement to be accurate and fair, several precautions need to be taken. Failure to take into account these factors will result in measurements that are inaccurate.
