PassMark is a software company (officially called PassMark Software) that provides various software utilities for performing benchmark tests on a computer system. Users can run CPU BurnIn tests, 2D & 3D graphics tests, hard drive tests, memory tests, and CD and DVD drive tests. Test results can be submitted to PassMark Software for further analysis as well.
The Performance Test benchmarking software provides summary results for seven categories, as well as an overall score, called the PassMark Rating. These summary results are displayed as bar charts to make it easy for users to read and understand. Users can also use the baseline results provided by the software to compare their computer scores against other computers, to see how their computer rates and how fast it is compared to the other computers. The latest version of the PerformanceTest software is 7.0 Build 1027 as of February 20, 2012. The software can be used on computers running Windows 2000, XP, Vista, or 7, as well as servers running Windows Server 2003 and 2008. It is compatible with both 32-bit and 64-bit operating systems.
