  • Interpret disk scores

    I'm wondering if scores for disk (all of them) are these numbers that PassMark uses, or if they are real numbers, like millisecond access times.

    The ONLY information I can find on these numbers are "the higher the number the faster the computer" This would seem true for final score, but how about for individual scores?

    Yes, higher is always better.

    For the disk, all individual test score are in MB/Sec.

    The "mark" score is a weighted average.
