Performance test is a benchmark tool used to test your computers
performance. I ran the 'all test' battery of test on my gaming system a AMD
Athlon 64 4000 with 1Gb of ram and everything ran smoothly enough.
Sadly, I couldn't determine through the program what my results were as the
unregistered version will not let you compare stats or give you any kind of
baseline to compare your system against.
The program seems to do a variety of tests, including disk read and write,
graphics performance and CPU testing as I said though there's no way to compare
without paying the registration cost.
If your looking for a quick check of your system to see if everything is working
okay, this is probably a fine tool and even includes a help file.
However, if your looking to really see how a system performs against others or
even against a standard of some sort you'll have to either fork over some cash
or look else where.
