Futuremark Announces PCMark 8
You won't be surprised to learn that FM has been working on a new PCMark. For the first time in the series, PCMark 8 will combine performance testing with battery life measurement. You can estimate battery use from each benchmark test or use Battery Life mode to loop a test until the battery is almost empty for more accurate results.
Whether you are looking for long battery life, maximum power, for the home or at the office, PCMark 8 will help you find the devices that offer the perfect combination of efficiency and performance for your needs.
PCMark 8 will be available in several editions ranging from a free to download Basic Edition to a fully-featured Professional Edition designed for device manufacturers, businesses and the press. PCMark 8 is compatible with Windows 8 and Windows 7.
PCMark 8 is in the final stages of development with a public release expected towards the end of Q2. For now, you can find out more on our new PCMark 8 page, or if you have a specific question, do get in touch.
