PassMark PerformanceTest 9 is a fast, easy to use, PC speed testing and benchmarking software for Windows. It allows you to objectively benchmark a PC using twenty-eight different speed tests over six test suites, then compare the results to other computers.
PerformanceTest comes with six baseline results as well as the ability to search and download thousands more from PassMark online database of user submission. It also lets you use the advanced tests to create your own benchmark scenarios. In addition to the standard tests, there are 7 summary results plus the overall “PassMark Rating” result. The benchmark results are presented as easy to read bar charts so that you don’t need to spend hours studying the number to know the result.
The timing for the tests is done using high-resolution timers, which are accurate to approximately 1 millionth of a second on most PC’s.
PassMark PerformanceTest 9 offers the thirty-two standard benchmark tests in five test suites plus there are seven advanced testing windows for custom benchmarking.
PassMark PerformanceTest 9 Standard test suites:
- CPU tests Mathematical operations, compression, encryption, SSE, 3DNow!
- 2D graphics tests Drawing lines, bitmaps, fonts, text, and GUI elements
- 3D graphics tests Simple to complex DirectX 3D graphics and animations
- Disk tests Reading, writing and seeking within disk files
- Memory tests Allocating and accessing memory speed and efficiency
The seven advanced testing windows allow experienced users to create their own test scenarios and conduct an in-depth analysis of their hardware’s behavior. Each advanced testing window allows the user to select from a number of parameters and when appropriate graph the results, export the results and measure the CPU load. By adjusting the input parameters is it possible to measure the optional performance under a variety of different scenarios.
- Advanced Disk Testing. Test the speed of your disk using different file sizes, block sizes and caching options.
- Advanced CD / DVD Testing. Test the speed of your CD or DVD drive using different test durations, block sizes and caching options.
- Advanced 3D Testing. Test the speed of your 3D video card by selecting from options such as fogging, lighting, alpha blending, wireframe, texturing, resolution, color depth, object rotation, and object displacement.
- Advanced Networking Test. Measure the network speed between any two computers using TCP/IP. The network speed test can be conducted across a company LAN or across the Internet to determine the point to point throughput. Adjust parameters such as the hostname, IP address, port number, and block size. Works with dialup modems, ADSL, cable and LANs.
- Advanced Memory Test. Measure the read and write speed of your RAM. Parameters include data size (8 bits to 32 bits) and a selection of two test modes. Linear sequential access across various block sizes or non-sequential access with varying step size. This allows both the effect of RAM caching and the optimizations in the memory controller to be investigated.
- Advanced Visualized Physics Test. View a visual representation of what the standard CPU Physics test is doing. You can also tweak the simulation parameters to get different effects.
- Advanced DirectCompute Test. Test your Video card’s DirectCompute performance with a series of tests.
PassMark PerformanceTest 9 includes the following additional features:
- Comprehensive online help
- Supports hyper-threading, and multiple CPUs testing

- A summary system information screen including CPU type, CPU speed, Total RAM, Video Hardware, Cluster size, etc..
- The ability to compare the performance of your computer to multiple ‘Baseline’ computers at the one time.
- Flexible license, move the software
PassMark PerformanceTest 9 supports
- Windows XP to Windows 10.
What’s New in PassMark PerformanceTest 9.0 Build 1031:
- Baseline management – added max cpu/3d/disk scores to advanced baseline search windows. Will now force a min and max score entry (with a difference no larger than 1000) when doing a search based only on a cpu/3d/disk score.
- Removed Nvidia G-Sync check before submitting baseline results as the Nvidia API was not reliable and could indicate G-Sync was enabled on systems that did not support it
- Fixed a bug in the DX12 test where it would not always choose the video card with the largest amount of RAM
