    Causes and Solutions for a slow PC

    Having 32bit windows will be pulling the result down a bit.

    Also you are comparing you quad core Athlon II X4 620 CPU to a Dual core Celeron E3300. And even though you have twice as many cores, your CPU result was only a little bit better. This means the E3300 has much better single threaded performance. The memory test is single threaded, but the CPU test is multithreaded.

    So it isn't any real surprise that you got beat in the RAM test. Even if the RAM was identical in both machines, your CPU is slower when single threaded.

    Help, low ram score!

    Hi, I downloaded your software to test my gpu which is giving me very low fps in games.

    After running your test my gpu score was low 411, compared to your average of 759 but what was even lower was my ram score when compared to someone with the same gpu and similar cpu.

    My specs:
    Athlon II X4 620 (4x 2.6ghz)
    Radeon 4670 HD 1gb
    Win 7 32bit
    4gb ram

    Here is an image of my score, see how low the ram is, could that be causing the bad gpu performance and if so, how to fix?
