Futuremark Announces PCMark 8
Author: Cássio LimaDate: May 20, 2013 - 6:42 AM PST
Category: Software
More Info: http://www.futuremark.com/benchmarks/pcmark8

Today, Futuremark announced the PCMark 8. For the first time in the series, PCMark 8 will combine performance testing with battery life measurement. You can estimate battery use from each benchmark test or use Battery Life mode to loop a test until the battery is almost empty for more accurate results.

PCMark benchmark tests are based on common use scenarios such as browsing the web, photo editing, video chat, writing, and gaming. PCMark 8 takes this one step further by including additional benchmark tests based on popular productivity and creativity applications from Adobe and Microsoft.

PCMark 8 has been developed in partnership with the members of our Benchmark Development Program. PCMark BDP members include Acer, AMD, Condusiv Technologies, Dell, HGST, HP, Intel, Microsoft, NVIDIA, Samsung, SanDisk, Seagate, and Western Digital.

PCMark 8 will be available in several editions ranging from a free to download Basic Edition to a fully-featured Professional Edition designed for device manufacturers, businesses, and the press.

PCMark 8 is in the final stages of development with a public release expected towards the end of Q2.
