PCMark 8 is a benchmarking software that uses real-world applications to measure the computer performance. We ran three tests: Home, which includes web browsing, writing, light gaming, photo editing, and video chat tests; Creative, that includes web surfing, video editing, group video chat, video conversion, and gaming; and Work, which runs tasks such as writing documents, web browsing, spreadsheets, editing, and video chatting. Let’s see the results.
On the PCMark 8 Home benchmark, the Athlon X4 845 was 11% slower than the FX-4300, 11% slower than the A10-7870K, and was 30% slower than the Core i3-6100.
On the Creative benchmark, the Athlon X4 845 was 7% slower than the FX-4300 and the A10-7870K, and was 26% slower than the Core i3-6100. On the Work benchmark, the Athlon X4 845 was on par with the FX-4300 and the A10-7870K, but was 20% slower than the Core i3-6100.
