PCMark & 3DMark Tests

The FutureMark tests have been around for some time, but they continue to push even the best of PCs to their absolute limits. The PCMark tests will offer a well-rounded look at a rig’s overall performance while 3DMark is best for gaming prowess. The final element of the benchmark, 3DMark FireStrike, will stress all but the most expensive of machines.

Futuremark PCMark 7 & 8
Simulated Application Performance

PCMark 7 is great for testing your system’s general performance. While it won’t give you a great assessment for graphics-rendering capabilities, PCMark is crucial for understanding the other factors in PC performance. Check out the scores from PCMark 7 and 8 to see how the Erazer x510 fared.

With a decent score of 5083 in PCMark 7, the Lenovo Erazer x510 is a capable machine, even though it won’t be setting any records. It actually scored considerably less than the Vanquish II, though that shouldn’t dissuade you from taking a look at the x510’s offering.

The PCMark 8 tests (not graphed just yet) showed great results in the Home Accelerated and Work Conventional tests; the system scored 4252 and 3492 respectively. The Storage score, 3368, is on the lower side, but it’s not surprising given the lack of a dedicated SSD.

Simulated Gaming Performance

The 3DMark 11 tests are excellent indicators of how a PC stacks up in terms of gaming performance. We ran the test on the Performance preset at 1920 x 1280.

The GTX 760 in the Erazer X510 mustered a respectable score of 5365. Again, it’s nothing too extreme, but it’s not a slouch either.

Simulated Gaming Performance

Next up we have 3DMark FireStrike, which offers tessellation, ambient occlusion, dynamic particle effects, high-res textures, and depth of field. We ran the test on Normal mode, which targets 1920 x 1080, and used the scores from GT1, GT2, Physics, and Combined.

The Erazer x510 managed to put up some respectable numbers here thanks to its fast CPU and memory. While it can’t stack up to high-end rigs, the relatively modest components did more than enough to warrant consideration.
