I'd really appreciate someone point me in the right direction about this. I spend considerable money on getting a powerful PC, had pcspecialists.co.uk build it for me and it seems to work pretty well although it has crashed a few times and the HDD has not shown up a few times.
Windows 8 WEI gave me a 4.5, I updated video drivers and it's now 4.4.
PCmark7 gave me a paltry 2459 - I did not need a powerful graphics card as I am not a gamer.
Here are my specs:
Intel® Core™i7 Quad Core Processor i7-3770 (3.4GHz) 8MB Cache
ASUS® P8Z77-M: MICRO-ATX, USB 3.0, SATA 6GBs, ATI®CrossFireX
16GB SAMSUNG DUAL-DDR3 1333MHz (4 X 4GB)
1GB NVIDIA GEFORCE GT 620 -
2TB 3.5" SATA-III 6GB/s HDD 7200RPM 64MB CACHE
20GB INTEL® SSD 313 SERIES - SLC CACHE DRIVE FOR SYSTEM / 1st HDD
I really thought with SSD, a i7 quad core and 16 gigs or ram I would be able to blast through these benchmarks. What gives? This really is a slap in the face after spending considerable cash.
Any help would be greatly appreciated, cheers.
Apologies if I posted in the wrong place - been lurking here for a long time, first post.
hello... PASSMark on the GT 620=436 its pretty much a Wordprocessor Card... Your CPU/GPU has a rating of 471... Do you have time to return your Videocard? And just use your CPU/GPU for your needs?
Yes... you have some fine very fast components... But theses tests are system tests...and will help people identify weaker components in their computers, and Upgrade, if they so decide too. You have a great numbers "Cruncher", BUT, You don't have a Great Graphics " MUNCHER"... And thats OK.
Thanks for the reply. So are these benchmarks heavily influenced by graphics cards? Is there a benchmark to make me feel like I put together a decent non-gaming pc? I feel like I should be scoring a much higher WEI...
The GT 620 is not a strong card by any means, and since WEI goes by your lowest rating its either your video or the HDD being a hybrid instead of o true SSD your data xfer rating is probably low. Since your not a gamer you should be fine nut i would have made sure they didnt put a locked CPU, and weak GPU in there. Also having a 256GB SSD + the 2 TB HDD instead of a 20 gig intel slc that basically only works as a 20 gig cache for the 2 TB drive.
