Going to higher settings might have different results but I believe 4K gaming is still a minority as of this moment. As one of the top tools utilized in the industry, Disk Benchmark identifies performance in hard drives, solid state drives, RAID arrays as well as connections to storage. Forward compatibility is extremely tricky — each module slots into a specific connection port on the board, and those connection points have to be capable of handling the exact power requirements of the CPU.
There are a few platform consistencies. There are 11 system tests — each one is designed to represent a certain type of PC usage.
Unlike mogherboard storage tests, the PCMark 8 Storage benchmark highlights real-world performance differences between storage devices. Just this week, Microsoft announced that Windows 10 would ship with Linux command line support thanks to a prominent partnership with Ubuntu. Please log in or register to comment. We see several previous OEM focused companies vying for the hearts and minds of DIY builders, gamers and overclockers.
