Easy PC Benchmarking

For Windows, Linux, macOS and, Android and iOS

  • Compare the performance of your PC to similar computers around the world.
  • Measure the effect of configuration changes and hardware upgrades.
  • Industry standard since 1998.

Is your PC performing at its best?

Compare your results
PassMark Rating
Create your own tests

Compare your PC with over a million computers worldwide through our searchable baseline database as submitted by other PerformanceTest users.


After running the test, PerformanceTest provides you with an overall “PassMark Rating” that has been a standard for quantifying PC performance since 1998.

Standard Test Suites

CPU tests
2D graphics tests
3D graphics tests
Disks tests
Memory tests

Extensive CPU testing supporting hyper-threading and multiple CPUs. Executes complex mathematical calculations involving compression, encryption and physics simulations.

2d test

This suite tests the ability of your video card to carry out 2D graphics operations for every day applications such as Word Processing, Web browsing and CAD drawing. This includes rendering of simple and complex vectors, Fonts and Text, Windows User Interface components, Image filters, Image Rendering, and Direct 2D.

3d test

Measure the performance of the 3D graphics hardware installed on your computer. Supports DirectX 9 to DirectX 12 in 4K resolution, DirectCompute and OpenCL.

disc test

This suite will exercise the mass storage units (hard disk, solid state drives, optical drives, etc.) connected to your computer. Involves sequential read, sequential write, random seek read+write and IOPS measurements.

memory test

This suite exercises the memory (RAM) sub-system of your computer. This includes database operations, cached and uncached reads, write, latency, and threaded read tests.

Over a million computers compared

PassMark has collected the baselines benchmarks of over a million computers and made them available in our network of industry recognized benchmark sites such as,,, and more.

Using PerformanceTest, you can search and download these baselines, and submit your own benchmark to our site.

Advanced testing

Seven advanced configurable tests allow experienced users to create their own test scenarios and conduct in-depth analysis of their hardware’s behavior.

3D graphics
Visualized Physics
GPU Compute

Test the speed of your disk using different file sizes, block sizes and caching options. Test with multiple threads and measure IOPS.

Test the cabaility of your CPU by running our advanced individual CPU tests on a specified number of threads. Read more

Test the speed of your 3D video card by selecting from options such as fogging, lighting, alpha blending, wire frame, texturing, resolution, color depth, object rotation and object displacement.

Separate tests for DirectX 9,10,11 & 12. Supports 4K resolution. Read more

Measure the network speed between any two computers using TCP/IP. The network speed test can be conducted across a company LAN or across the Internet to determine the point to point throughput.

Adjust parameters such as the host name, IP address, port number and block size. Works with dialup modems, ADSL, cable and LANs. Read more

Measure the read and write speed of your RAM. Parameters include data size (8 bits to 64 bits) and a selection of two test modes. Linear sequential access across various block sizes or non sequential access with a varying step size.

This allows both the effect of RAM caching and the optimizations in the memory controller to be investigated. Read more

View a visual representation of what the standard CPU Physics test is doing. You can also tweak the simulation parameters to get different effects. Read more

Test your Videocard's compute performance with a series of tests. Both DirectCompute and OpenCL. Read more
