Benchmarking a New System in VISTA 64 Tags: New Build Windows Vista Systems Last response: February 7, 2008 7:35 PM in Systems Share althius February 7, 2008 4:16:14 PM I posted this in the Vista section, but its not getting much play... Anyone have any suggestions for a good benchmarker for Vista 64? I tried PCMARK05, but it had problems, as did the latest Sandra. What are people using? (Aside from 3DMARK06) I'd really like to get some baselines before I start the OC process.

Is that right? | Report abuse grieve February 7, 2008 6:07:27 PM Why don’t you want to use 3DMARK06? Once you complete the bench you get to compare to other Vista64 machines running the same gear… I posted 11,900 Vista64.. you just cant compare to XP results. | Report abuse Related ressources Benchmarking and maintaining your Raid array in Vista for rookies - Forum Vista : Benchmarking or Benchmarketing? - Forum Benchmarking Core Duo 2 vs Amd X2 64 bit? - Forum Benchmarking Software for Vista 64 -bit - Forum Why do I have 64 -bit Vista ?

(as long as the system is not bottlenecked). | Report abuse althius February 7, 2008 7:35:45 PM My purpose wasn't so much to brag to the world, as for internal purposes only. I want to have a baseline to compare my OCs to, and also to refer back to later in life. I find its helpful later on if I THINK my *insert component here* is a little off to be able to compare its current performance to "out of the box". @Grieve: I did use 3Dmark06, and it worked fine. I got around your scores... I just wanted a broader measure of different components. | Report abuse Register or log in to remove Ask the community Publish Tom's Hardware>Forum>Systems>Benchmarking a New System in VISTA 64> Related ressources: Forum32-bit or 64 -bit Windows Vista for gaming?
