Geekbench 3.3
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 brings these changes:

- Added a battery test for Android, iOS.
- Added a brief summary to "Share Results" email on iOS.
- Addressed 64-bit code generation issues on Android/AArch64.
- Fixed a crash that occurred on Windows 10.
- Fixed a crash that could occur on 32-core systems.
- Reduced the memory footprint of the BlackScholes workload.

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

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 (v11.0.6)

Free Full Commercial Software

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 is a compact, simple, but surprisingly feature-packed disc burning suite.

The program makes it easy to create simple data discs and audio CDs, for instance: just drag and drop your files onto the list area and you'll be burning the finished disc in a couple of clicks.

That's just the start, though. Burning Studio 2013 can also create data discs with customised, interactive multi-page menus, perfect if you'd like a more professional way to share and present the disc contents.

A built-in backup tool allows you to create backups which may be encrypted, compressed, and span several CDs, DVDs and Blu-rays.

And there are modules to create VCD or SVCD video projects; burn video DVDs or Blu-ray discs from prepared folders; create, browse or burn disc images (ISO, CUE/ BIN and Ashdisc formats are supported); copy discs, erase them, design and print disc covers, labels and booklets, and more.

The focus throughout is on ease of use, though, and so Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 remains very straightforward, whatever you're doing. Most disc projects are created via the same simple interface, and for the most part all you have to do is drag and drop the necessary files. But experts will find more advanced options are only a click away, and if you need to then you can set ISO and UDF version, enable Joliet, make a disc bootable and more.

Note the download here will take you to the Downloadcrew Software Store where you can download Burning Studio 2013.
