im guessing you like the idea of one number for the whole thing. but thats a general BM but for all you know one part of your pc could be bottle necking or bumping your score. where these two benches show exactly what is going on with your hardware. your cpu could be oced to the max and bumping up your score wile your vga is not quite up to scratch. or vise versa. with the two you know exactly what eather is doing.
Indeed, right, and since what I use contains 14 tests for the different sections of my PC, I can see better where bottlenecks are in my PC

His reasoning is sound.

What OCN members are saying is that 3DMark is designed to specifically test your video card while SuperPi for example is specifically designed test your CPU.

If XS Benchmark allows you to run separate tests then you are correct.

It is just not as widely used as 3DMark or SuperPi.

The 3DMark series uses various graphics processing methods and puts most stress on the graphics cards. Different versions use different techniques, and attempt to be "future-proofed" so that they are still valid benchmarks in 2 or 3 years time.

SuperPi uses your processor to calculate Pi to a certain number of places using algorithams (sp?) - this puts a lot of stress on the parts of the processor which carry out mathematical functions.
For me that understand little about computers, the results shown in XS Benchmark are clear to understand, unlike other benchmarks that we want two degrees to understand a little...

allow to run all the 14 test separately

but only in the registerd version

Every benchmark has a different range of values - they give you a number which you can then compare with other people's numbers There are plenty of results on Google.

However, the graphics card much impact on the speed of the entire system......

Benchmarks are a good way to compare computer vs computer, but usually aren't good for seeing how good or bad your computer is in general. (You might pass a test in a benchmark, but your computer can still suck )

Use 3DMark06, 3DMark05, and Super Pi.
For example people generaly bench Before and After Computer hardware upgrades to see how much they gain in performance.

usually when people want to compare their system to others, they will benchmark using the most widely used program that way when you say "i got 1 gazilion points in Super Duper Ultra Super Fast Lightning Test 2008", nobody is going to take you seriously untill you bench using what others are, and yes, so far 3D Mark 06, Super PI and Prime 95 are the most popular....i think

Use 3dmark06 or 3dmark05, and superpi, like others have recommended.
