PC Mark 10 Feature
Following the launch of PCMark 10 Professional Edition at the start of the month, today we are releasing PCMark 10 Basic Edition, a free benchmark for home users, and PCMark 10 Advanced Edition, which adds more tests and features for enthusiasts.
PCMark 10 is the latest version in our series of industry standard PC benchmarks. Updated for Windows 10 with new and improved tests, PCMark 10 is also faster and easier to use.
  • The industry standard PC performance benchmark for Windows.
  • Relevant, real-world tests covering a wide range of everyday activities.
  • Accurate and impartial, ideal for comparing systems and choosing upgrades.
  • Created in cooperation with leading hardware and software companies.
PCMark benchmarks measure the performance of your PC using tests based on real-world applications and activities. In PCMark 10, these tests include everyday tasks like browsing websites, video chat, writing and spreadsheets, photo and video editing, and playing games.
Run the main benchmark and you’ll get a PCMark 10 score that you can use to compare your PC with other systems or to see the impact of Windows updates and hardware upgrades.
PCMark 10 updates many of the tests in PCMark 8 and adds new ones too. With its new and improved workloads, the main PCMark 10 benchmark takes less than half the time of the equivalent test in PCMark 8.
Each benchmark run produces a high-level benchmark score, mid-level test group scores, and low-level workload scores to give you a detailed view of your PC’s performance. Thanks to a brand new feature, you can also compare results side by side in the app.
PCMark 10 shares the same style of user interface as 3DMark and VRMark. With its familiar layout, it’s easy to start benchmarking with PCMark 10.

  1. What’s there to say? It’s the industry standard.

    If you just want a PCMark 10 score, don’t waste your money. Just get the free Basic Edition instead.
    The free edition allows you to run the standard test and gives you a score.

    Only buy this (Advanced Edition) if you actually need the extra features: Express and Extended test, hw monitoring, custom settings, comparing results in the app and saving results offline.
    That’s it, nothing more to it. If you need any of those extra features then buy, if not then don’t.

    P.S. It seems like a lot of people think this is a benchmark targeted for gaming PC’s or workstations.
    I mean, why are people actually buying this if they have no clue, what-so-ever, about what they’re buying? Why haven’t they tried the free edition first when it is more than good enough for 99% of users out there?
    tl;dr Read the darn “about this software” to understand what you’re buying before buying and whining.
