PCMark and 3DMark Tests
We use Futuremark’s benchmarking suite to get a feel for the B50’s overall performance. PCMark is a measuring stick of a machine’s all-around performance during daily use. There are options that let you break down performance, component by component, but for the following number we wanted to assess the system’s performance as a whole.
The Lenovo B50 didn’t feature any jaw-dropping PCMark numbers, about what you’d expect from a mid-range all in one PC with a hybrid storage configuration.
3DMark is a workout that primarily stresses a computer’s 3D graphics processing capabilities. These numbers are also greatly impacted by the CPU, though – the better the CPU, the better your overall 3DMark score will be.
As with PCMark, the 3DMark numbers are average, befitting a machine that’s outfitted more for all-around daily multimedia use and not high-speed, graphics-intensive games.
