PCMark 8 is the latest version in the popular series of PC benchmarking tools. Improving on previous releases, PCMark 8 includes battery life measurement tools and new tests using popular applications from Adobe and Microsoft. Whether you are looking for long battery life, or maximum power, PCMark 8 helps you find the devices that offer the perfect combination of efficiency and performance for your needs.
PCMark 8 shows a tight battle between both of the comparison boards at stock speeds. This is largely unsurprising given the sheer number of on-chip mechanisms with Intel’s models from recent generations, IVB-E included.
