This is just a quick post announcing that Futuremark will be releasing PCMark 7 “soon”. Limited information is available at the moment, as price and launch date are yet to be announced. What we do know is this, taken from a private Futuremark press release:
PCMark 7 includes more than 20 individual workloads combined into 7 separate suites to give different views of system performance.
The PCMark Suite measures overall system performance and returns an official PCMark score.
- - The Lightweight Suite measures the capabilities of entry level systems unable to run the full PCMark suite.
- - The Entertainment Suite measures system performance in entertainment, media and gaming scenarios.
- - The Creativity Suite measures performance in typical creativity scenarios involving images and video.
- The Productivity suite measures system performance scenarios using the Internet and office applications.
- The Computation Suite contains workloads that isolate the computation performance of the system.
- - The Storage Suite contains workloads that isolate the performance of the PC’s storage system.
