    Hi,


    I was wondering if there's any decent & free benchmarking software around. I'd like to test the various components of my computer.

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks.

    Super Pi will give the time its takes for your computer to calculate Pi to a certain number of decimal places. 2 million is the standard benchmark

    PCMark, 3DMark and MobileMark can all be found here:

    http://www.futuremark.com/products/

    The free versions are basic versions.

    Here's a list:

    Super Pi: Run this program to calculate Pi to 2 million digits of accuracy, make sure there are minimal processes running in the background. Download: ftp://pi.super-computing.org/windows/super_pi.zip

    PCMark05 (free version) ? The video test might fail if your notebook has Windows Media 10.0. Download: http://www.futuremark.com/download/?pcmark05.shtml (there's no need to purchase the System Suite, just report the numbers it produces in the free version such as multithreading rates, file decryption and web page rendering times shown under the system test suite online results)

    3DMark05 / 3DMark06 (free versions): This is a large download but worth it if you have a dedicated graphics card notebook. Download 3DMark05: http://www.futuremark.com/download/?3dmark05.shtml (283MB), or try 3DMark06: http://www.futuremark.com/download/?3dmark06.shtml (580MB) if you don't mind the larger download size of 3DMark06

    HD Tune: Run the test pattern for temp and high and low throughput speeds. Download: http://www.hdtune.com/

    Everest: An application used to provide low level memory and motherboard information and benchmarking: download from either here http://www.majorgeeks.com/download4181.html or here http://www.notebookreview.com/everest.exe

    Sis Sandra Lite 2005 - What I use for general system information, benchmarking, and burn-in tools.
    SuperPi Mod -For straight arithmatic. Basicaly just SuperPi with results including miliseconds along with a checksum. Allows for accuracy and validation.
