Questions about Passmark benching software

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I use Passmark Performance Test to bench my PC's. It's a great tool to check my computer against itself after overclocking or messing with a setting (even upgrading a driver). The problem is that the GPU and CPU ratings on the website seem a little screwy at the high end. It makes me question if the tests are relevant for real life computing (encoding, gaming etc.) for example, how does a 6990 rate slightly lower than a GTX 470? How does an I7 970 beat a 2600K when most users are gamers** and will see better fps with SB?

(**I don't actually know that to be true)

I guess my questions are:
1. Is Passmark benching relevant for gamers (especially on the CPU/GPU
2. Does anyone else use this program for serious benchmarking.
