PCMark 8

HWM (Singapore) - - TEST -

(higher is bet­ter)

PCMark 8 is a syn­thetic bench­mark that runs the ma­chines through var­i­ous tasks in dif­fer­ent sce­nar­ios, such as brows­ing the web, cre­at­ing doc­u­ments in word pro­cess­ing and spread­sheet soft­ware, edit­ing pho­tos and pho­tos, and ca­sual gam­ing.

As a whole, it may not have looked like there was a clear win­ner among the note­books, but when we dive into the pro­duc­tiv­ity tests, we can see a few stand out per­form­ers. The Len­ovo X1 topped the Mi­crosoft Of­fice test and was pretty cconsis­tent in other work­loads, ei­ther a solid sec­ond or very closely tied at the top. The HP on the other hand was less con­sis­tent. While it took the top scores in the Adobe CS6 test, it per­formed the worst in Mi­crosoft Of­fice.

The Dell, with its slower i5 pro­ces­sor held its own in terms of pro­duc­tiv­ity, but as ex­pected, landed in the mid­dle for most tests.
