Novabench 4.0.4
Benchmark your PC’s core specs with Novabench

Just how fast or powerful is your computer? How does it compare to other models on the market? Are you contemplating an upgrade and wondering what kind of effect it might have? The solution lies in benchmarking your computer.

Novabench is a simple benchmarking tool for PC and Mac that focusses on four specific areas: your processor (CPU), graphics card or chip (GPU), memory (RAM) and hard disk. These are split into several sub-tests – for example, the GPU tests comprise a straightforward 3D render, compute test and support for multiple GPUs. The tests are not that sophisticated – the disk tests focus solely on sequential performance and not random drive speeds, for example.

It’s easy to run, but the results – delivered as four numbers – are meaningless unless you subsequently submit them online. You can then register an account, or stay anonymous. You can then compare these results with other users to get a more meaningful overview of your system.

There are undoubtedly better and more comprehensive benchmarking tools out there, but these cost money. Novabench is free for personal and non-commercial use – a Pro license costs $49 and includes support for a portable version, temperature tracking, scheduled benchmarking and access to a command-line interface.

What’s new in version 4.0.4 (see changelog for more)?

- Added temperature support for new CPUs
- Improved OpenCL test compatibility
- Security issue in installer addressed by upstream vendor (info )
- Bug fixes and improvements

Verdict:

A good tool for generating quick and dirty benchmarks for your PC or Mac. Lacks advanced features and tests, however.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.18.51

Free Full Commercial Software

WhatsApp Messenger is the world's most popular instant messaging app for smartphones.

You can use it to send and receive text and voice messages, photos, videos, even call your friends in other countries, and because it uses your phone's internet connection it might not cost you anything at all (depending on whether you'll pay data charges).

It's easy to set up and use. There's no need to create and remember new account names or pins because it works with your phone number, and uses your regular address book to find and connect you with friends who use WhatsApp already.

You can talk one-to-one or in group chats, and because you're always logged in there's no way to miss messages. Even if your phone is turned off, WhatsApp will save your messages and display them as soon as you're back online.

There's plenty more (location sharing, contact exchange, message broadcasting) and the app is free for a year, currently $0.99/ year afterwards.

What's New in Version 2.18.51

• When you receive a link to an Instagram or Facebook video, you can now play it right within WhatsApp. With picture-in-picture, you can also keep watching the video while you navigate to another chat.
• If you're a group admin, you can now remove admin rights from other participants. Select the admin in "Group Info" and tap "Dismiss As Admin."
• Group admins can now choose who can change a group's subject, icon and description by going to "Group Info" and tapping "Group Settings."
