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.


As we have said this is very early news so information is limited, however we will do our best to keep you informed as we find out more.

best thing to do is spend as much time as you can reading threads like this 1 because the info you want is there you just need to know its contents. once you read thru it a few times you will see whats worked for others and have a rough idea what will work for you.

overclocking isnt a science its more like cooking and just like no 2 streaks fry the same no 2 cpu oc the same. just like 1 peice of meat might need a minute or so more than another to be perfect one cpu might need a little more (or less) voltage than another to be stable at the same speed.

once you know your blk from ddr and have tried to change it your self we can help you when your stuck but to try and just pluck speeds and voltages out of thin air is like trying to knit fog. if you want a stable system without putting in the graft of ocing just leave it stock mate as no overclocked system is stable till you have stressed it you know.
