PCMark 8 v2
PCMark 8 v2 is the latest version in Futuremark’s series of popular PC benchmarking tools. It is designed to test the performance of all types of systems, from tablets to desktops. PCMark 8 offers five separate benchmark tests to help consumers find devices that offer the perfect combination of efficiency and performance for their particular use case. This latest version of the suite improves the Home, Creative and Work benchmarks with new tests using popular open source applications for image processing, video editing and spreadsheets. A wide variety of workloads have also been added to the Work benchmark to better reflect the way PCs are used in enterprise environments.
As you can see from the chart, the Aspire R 13 performs well in all three components of this test. In fact, the R 13 earned first place in the Home Accelerated and Work Accelerated tests and came in second place in the Storage test. The relatively fast processor and super speedy SSD help propel the system to head of the pack here.
