Geekbench 3.3.2
Measure the performance of your CPU and RAM with this straightforward benchmark

Geekbench is an easy-to-use benchmark that will quickly deliver a verdict on your CPU and memory performance.

Why should you care? If you're overclocking your system, say, then Geekbench will reveal how much extra speed you've squeezed out of your system. If you're thinking of buying a friend's PC or laptop then the program will show you just how fast it is. Or you can use the online Geekbench Result Browser to see how well your system performs against others, which could help you to discover how well optimised it is, as well as telling you what sort of improvement you might see from upgrading to various processors.

If you've tried benchmarks before then you'll know they can be intimidating, giving you a host of options to configure before you get started. Geekbench is different, though, because, well, it has no options, preferences or settings at all. All you have to do is click the "Run Benchmarks" button, and a mere 40 seconds later (on our test PC) the report appears.

This is fairly straightforward, too. So you get a single Geekbench score that represents the performance of your system. You can then zoom in to see single values for CPU integer performance and floating point performance, memory and memory bandwidth speeds. And if you need more, then you're also able to see the individual tests that are used to calculate these figures, so for instance you'll see both the sequential read and write speeds for your RAM.

And finally, a click or two will allow you to save your report locally, or upload the figures to Geekbench where you can compare them with others.

Please note, this trial version of the program is limited to 32-bit benchmarks. You'll need to purchase the program to unlock the 64-bit benchmarks.

Geekbench 3.3.2 brings these changes:

- Reduced AES multi-core score variability on systems with two or more NUMA nodes.
- Fixed crashes that occurred in low memory situations on Android.
- Fixed a bug that caused benchmark results to print incorrectly on OS X.
- Fixed sharing benchmark results using "Share via Gmail" on Android Lollipop.
- Fixed bugs that prevented the battery test from starting automatically on certain Android devices.
- Fixed a bug that could prevent Geekbench from reporting the battery level on Android.
- Fixed bugs that could cause the battery test to crash on iOS.
- Fixed a crash that could occur when viewing battery test results on iOS.
- Fixed a bug that prevented users from adding battery test results to their Geekbench Browser account.

Verdict:

Geekbench is a simple yet very useful benchmark that makes it quick and easy to measure your PCs CPU and RAM performance and compare it against similar systems

Unreal Engine 4.8

Free Full Commercial Software

Unreal Engine is Epic Games' game engine, a powerful suite of tools for developing anything from basic 2D games to professional RPGs, first person shooters and whatever else you like.

Wide standards support - DirectX, OpenGL, JavaScript/ WebGL - means your projects can be targeted to almost any platform: consoles, iOS, Android, Windows, OS X, Linux, HTML5 browsers and more.

There's a vast amount to learn, of course, and that's even before you start building your game. But there's plenty of documentation, tutorials, demos and sample projects to point you in the right direction.

The package is now entirely free, too - no annoying limitations, nag screens or anything else. Epic now only requires that you pay a 5% royalty after the first $3,000 of revenue per product per quarter. And even then, you "pay no royalty for film projects, contracting and consulting projects such as architecture, simulation and visualization."

8.48 brings:
    - Optimized grass rendering and procedural foliage system preview
    - Plugins available in Marketplace
    - Improved accuracy for motion blur
    - New Tone Mapper
    - Support for all the latest VR hardware including Oculus Rift, Samsung Gear VR, Steam VR and HTC Vive, Leap Motion, and Sony's Project Morpheus for PlayStation 4
    - "Scrubbable" network replays with rewind support and live time scrubbing
    - Visualize the memory footprint of game assets in an interactive tree map UI
