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, that includes web surfing, video editing, group video chat, video conversion, and gaming; and Work, which runs tasks such as writing documents, web browsing, spreadsheets, editing, and video chatting. Let’s see the results.
On the PCMark 8 Home benchmark, the Ryzen 5 1600X performed similarly to the Core i5-7600K.
On the Creative benchmark, the Ryzen 5 1600X also performed similarly to the Core i5-7600K.
On the Work benchmark, also the Ryzen 5 1600X and the Core i5-7600K performed similarly.
