PCMark 8 is a benchmarking software that uses real-world applications to measure the computer performance. We ran three tests: Home, which includes web browsing, writing, light gaming, photo editing, and video chat tests; Creative, which includes web browsing, photo editing, video editing, group video chat, media transcoding, and gaming; and Work, which runs tasks such as writing documents, web browsing, spreadsheets, editing, and video chatting. Let’s analyze the results.
The A4-5000 achieved a score 21% higher than the Sempron 2650 and 5% higher than the Celeron J1800 in the Home test. With a discrete Radeon R7 240 video card installed, the performance was 9% higher.
On the Creative benchmark, the A4-5000 achieved a score 31% higher than Sempron 2650 and 9% higher than the Celeron J1800. Installing a Radeon R7 240 video card made no difference in this test.
On the Work benchmark, the A4-5000 was 13% faster than the Sempron 2650 and 8.5% slower than the Celeron J1800. Again, installing a Radeon R7 240 video card did not affect the performance of the reviewed CPU.
