PCMark 7 Gets Dated, Available for Preorder

Getting tired of staring at the same benchmarks every time you build a new PC or upgrade your gear? We have good news for you. Futuremark today announced that it will be releasing its PCMark 7 benchmark suite on May 3, 2011, which is less than three weeks away. As with most of Futuremark's software, there will be multiple versions to choose from, including a freebie build for penny-pinching braggarts. Here's the rundown:

PCMark 7 Basic Edition (Free)
  • Free PC test offering unlimited runs of the main PCMark test suite
  • Browser, search, and compare results online
  • Store one result online
PCMark 7 Advanced Edition ($39.95)
  • Includes all 7 PC tests with more than 25 individual workloads
  • Browser, search, and compare results online
  • Unlimited online results storage
  • Hide results from public view
  • Offline results management
  • Advert-free online service
PCMark 7 Professional Edition ($995)
  • Licensed for commercial PC system testing
  • Includes all 7 PC tests with more than 25 individual workloads
  • Command line automation
  • Browser, search, and compare results online
  • Unlimited online results storage
  • Hide results from public view
  • Offline result management
  • Advert-free online service
  • Priority support
Included in the suite is a "Lightweight" test designed for entry-level systems and mobility platforms unable to run the full PCMark test, so if you're rocking an older rig, you can still run PCMark 7.

For those of you interested in one of the more fleshed out paid versions, Futuremark is accepting preorders now.
