Should I do it??

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I was just in my OCN cpl editing my system just now, and I was looking at the Benchmark area. This got me wondering. Should I use all of those listed? Here they are:

3DMark01SE

3DMark03

3DMark05

3DMark06

SiSoft Sandra

AquaMark3

PCMark04


I mean, there are 4 different 3DMarks. Should I do them all? If I do, how much time should I expect to spend altogether?

Thank you!

Well then stop skimming and start reading!

So, I could expect to spend about 2.5 - 3 hours for all of these combined? If so, then I don't know what I'm waiting for!

Hang on with the 3dMark. 3dMark06 is the most recent version, the one you would want for your hardware. Running the old versions would be redundant, IMO.

As for the other tests, they're new to me too, but they're benchmarkers in general. Give'em all a whirl, and see which one you like to use the most. Then you can get consistent as you eliminate problems and enhance performance.
