Benchmark in CrystalMarkA benchmark is a test that measures the performance of hardware, software, or computer. These tests can be used to help compare how well a product may do against other products. When comparing benchmarks, the higher the value of the results, the faster the component, software, or overall computer is. The picture shows an example of a computer benchmark in CrystalMark and each of its components overall rating.
