Software update: PerformanceTest 8.0 build 1028

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. The following changes and improvements have been made in this release:

Changes in version 8.0 build 1028

  • Fixed a bug where in some cases the calculated overall 3D graphics mark was lower than it should have been, this mainly affected Intel integrated video cards.
    This would only happen if the DX10 test failed to start but would start on a second instance, in these cases a penalty was applied as if it had no DX10 compatible video card, despite running the test (related to the changes made in v8.0 build 1024).
  • Updated system information library: Added support for RAM modules on Supermicro server boards, SMBus support for Intel X79 Express Chipset, Fixed incorrect memory size reported for RAM modules > 32GB, AMD Athlon(tm) II X4 6xx socket type corrected.
