The next set of benchmarks will test the computers ability to run scientific applications, its ability to render complex images, and the performance of the hard drive.
In case you couldn't tell by the name, Sciencemark is the application I am going to use to test the computers ability to run science heavy programs. These are probably programs used mostly in research or education but the performance here carries over to other areas of computing as well.
CineBench 10 will test the computers graphics rendering ability. Also, it will indirectly test the efficiency of the multi core setup, as both a 1-thread and 2-thread test will be run.
The final test on this page is HDTune. This program will see how well the hard drives work and how well the communicate with the motherboard (and, ultimately, the OS).
