Software update: PerformanceTest 8.0 build 1024

PassMark Software, known for BurnInTest and WirelessMon, among others, has released an update for version 8.0 of PerformanceTest. This program allows a computer running Windows XP or higher to be subjected to a series of benchmarks. In 32 tests, the five main groups, namely the processor, 2D graphics, 3D graphics, storage and memory, are tested as objectively as possible and graphically compared to a number of other systems. In addition, there are seven extra tests, in which virtualization and the network can be examined, among other things. Since build 1016, the following changes and improvements have been made:

Changes in version 8.0 build 1024

  • Fixed a bug where on systems with Intel HD4600 graphics the DX10 test might not start first time and skip without an error message displayed, though a second attempt would start correctly.

Changes in version 8.0 build 1023

  • CPU information and temperature updates: Added support for Cloverview, Richland, Kabini, Temash, Delhi, Seoul, Abu Dhabi, Kyoto.
  • Fixed a crash that could occur when trying to launch the DirectCompute test from the advanced menu when no compatible video card was available
  • If the number of processes is changed in the preferences to be more than the default amount for the system then the test duration can now only be set to “very long” so score accuracy is increased
  • Increased “very long” test time in preferences from 15 seconds to 20 seconds

Changes in version 8.0 build 1022

  • Fixed a number of bugs in the system information gathering introduced in the previous release.

Changes in version 8.0 build 1021

  • Added support for Haswell CPUs.
  • Improved support for Atom CPUs.
  • Added CPU turbo speed filter to advanced search.
  • Fixed a bug causing the text export to print gibberish when the system information exceeded 512 characters.
