PassMark PC Performance testing software
Click on the image to be redirected to the PassMark downloads page. We recommend using this software in order to perform a standardised (and rigorous) measurement of your PC’s energy use when ACTIVE, rather than using whatever different types of software there happen to be installed on each PC.
Use of this software is optional. Another benefit is that the SPEED INDEX which the PassMark program produces will help you to understand just how good (or otherwise) your PC’s are, whether they are offering good performance value in return for the energy used, or whether you’d benefit from an upgrade. From this link you can download the current version 8 of the software. It’s easy to use and we find it invaluable. Please note that Ele have no relationship with the developers, and the software should be used in accordance with their terms and conditions.
