I just did a PCMark8 benchmark of my desktop computer. I recently built it and got some nice results and thought I would share them here.  Gives one an idea what a system like mine will do, not with FSX, but in the general browsing and gaming worlds.  I was actually expecting results closer to 60% of all worldwide benchmarks and the 97% was a pleasant surprise.

 

Best regards,

Jim

Jim is there a free version of that software?

Yes, that's what I used.  Just Google PCMark8.

 

Best regards,

Just ran it myself...

 

Better than 90% of all results. 3 frames less than Jim for gaming.

No offense intended, but for systems as recent as these, I think PCMark is not really a useful benchmark to check performance. Anyone with a cursory knowledge of hardware will know that an 3770K/4770K will do fine for everyday tasks such as browsing, video chat, photo editing and more. I just ran it on my i5 4670K (OC'd) and R9 290X and it's apparently faster than 98% of the other systems (5707). Yet the actual difference in numbers between my results and yours will make no difference whatsoever in user experience.

 

I prefer 3DMark for these higher end systems, as it will usually show more significant differences if you want to compare raw power in setups.

l knew someone would be critical of my benchmark score.  But, when you build a new computer system and run one of these fancy-dancy benchmark programs and it says your system is 97% better than others, you gotta brag a little.  I know that my system is definitely not better than 97% of others and, if I would run the PCMark8 program again (and I won't as it takes a long time to benchmark) my score would probably say I'm only 65% better than others.  I just happened to run the benchmark soon after the program was released and I didn't have too many competitors.  I just wish I would have been the first one to benchmark and the result would have been 100% better than others.  I hope this is a lesson to others.  Do not post your awesome benchmarks here!  They are likely a false or misleading.

 

Does my system run FSX?   Most of the time it runs great but, like today on a flight in my new PMDG 777 from KSFO to KSEA, over MSE V2 States and Orbx PNW scenery, in AS2012 nasty weather, with no tweaks except for LOD_Radius set at 6.5 and Texture_Max_Load set at 2048, it froze up on me about 50 miles from Seattle, with the FSUIPC utility warning dings constantly telling me I'm running low on memory.  I disabled most of my addon scenery too and only enabled the scenery my flightplan covered.  I'm positive I could have completed the flight without the real weather program running.  Just too many toys running at the same time.  Man has to know his [computers] limitations....

 

Best regards,

Jim
