Compare your PC performance scores with Gizmo's Freeware readers


A few days ago Rob posted an article on how to get the Windows Experience Index score back. Today we are going to showcase our PC Performance Scores using another freeware utility, Novabench. It is a benchmarking utility for Windows and Mac. Novabench is a versatile and advanced aggregator than WEI that tests the performance of various components of your computer and then assigns scores to each one of them. A higher score indicates a better performance. Novabench not only rates your computer but also can be used to find the various performance bottlenecks on your system. The scores generated comes from CPU Tests that include Floating Point Operations, Integer Operations and MD5 Hashing, GPU Tests calculating 3D Frames per second, Hardware Tests measuring RAM Transfer Speeds and Drive Write Speeds.



Novabench is extremely easy to use even for inexperienced computer users. Make sure you close all the applications while running the tests to get a higher score. Click on Compare These Results Online from the results window after finishing the tests and post the link here along with your score in the comments section. Scores and Stats here shows the Highest rated PC's posted at NovaBench. I will make sure to update the Top 10 Scores of our readers in this article.

Was having issues with my 3-yr-old motherboard six months ago. So, I upgraded my motherboard, CPU, GPU and RAM. Just ran Novabench and got 2558

My Score was only 719 - I hope you will post articles on how to increase our scores:

Is this what you want?

Score: 986
The harddrive is fast (SSD), 268 Gb - sorry 480 Gb (it was only one of the partitions that was 268 Gb - I have Linux on another).

Well I scored a 1434 but it wouldn't let me post compare my results! :( Home built from ground up several years ago. Intel I7 and still going fairly strong!

You can post the link after the test is finished so that I can update the Top10 :D

When I click on the link to compare it says "Could not reach Pleas check your network connection and try again." but if I check for an update it says no update available, which makes me think it is communicating. :(

Novabench Score: 1235

The results will be displayed as link too which you can post here :)

Unable to install the program. Got a message - not supported by processor type -

This must be an average; the scores for the M2 in benchmark (before adding the other 10 drives) at build time were about 4x this for write and about double for read

Home built
I ran this as in normal use with several browsers open, Music DVD playing,
2 x 27" monitors 1080P and 1 at 4K
boot drive PCIE M2 NVM +3 SSD + 7 spinner HD.
Will try later with minimal or maybe safe mode if it runs under that and compare.
The board & CPU are brand new (replaced Z170/I5-6600 Skylake that died last week).
The rest were from older builds swapped in previously to the Z170 build .
There are a few bugs to swat yet; this build is only 3 days old.
Haven't plugged in the Oculous yet, I'm having some USB issues still;
my reaction on the Z170 build was "meh..." VR needs work yet, esp. more games, but it worked OK

I chose to rebuild my PC with a new Coffee Lake processor and chose the cheapest i5 version. Interestingly this seems to outscore most older i7 rigs in both this and Geekbench

I scored 1589 on a custom built desktop. I use an SSD for my OS and programs and a 3 terabyte drive for data, then it backs up to a 16TB Synology server to keep entertainment that is shared via a wired network that I installed when I built my house 16 years ago.

HP Envy laptop, verified Novabench score is 1027

Verified NovaBench Score: 882

Home built desktop May 2014. My objective was to build a PC with the capabilities I needed at an affordable price that would give me years of service. I selected the Intel i5-4670K CPU with 16GB of RAM (with 2 open slots) and a 256GB SSD paired with a 4TB HDD. Onboard Intel GPU meets my needs now and I can upgrade later if I want to.
