View Full Version : Is this benchmark score about right?

I have a feeling that I screwed this system up while building it and I just tried the performance test and it feels slower than it should be, not that I know.
so, I hope that some of you fine people here will be able to tell me that I am right or wrong about it.
My system specs are:

For people who have purchased the software we keep a database of benchmark results. This can be accessed from inside PerformanceTest (under the 'baseline' menu).
There is also a web page version here,

By disabling the anti virus and closing the on line connection I get a score of 670, I wonder if I would get higher if I disabled all the rest background programs. (I have 480 MBs RAM occupied somewhere and I don't know where)
The thing that troubles me is the 2.8 MB/s result from the HDD. Feels awfully small.
Thanks for your reply.

It is probably the disk cache using up that amount of RAM. (Which is normal for Windows on a machine with a lot of RAM).
You might get a higher CD score if you use a test CD with big files on it. (rather than lots of small files).
Some background tasks can certainly slow down your machine.
I have just made a new post that summaries some investigation we did on Windows background tasks a few months back, see,
