One of the most important elements, apart from the obvious stuff above, was that the benchmark suite must be distributable and completely self-contained. We've therefore used Open Source applications, all of which install into a standard folder (with no entries into the Registry, or links to any OS services or applications). This means that you can download the benchmarks, install them and run them without any outside influences from OS updates and so forth.
Because of this, you can download the Media Benchmarks, run them on your system and see how it compares to the kit we're reviewing. You can also see just what effects an upgrade or an overclock has on your system. That's kinda handy, no?
This blog post is more about having a useful way for you (and us) to find a download link for these benchmarks than for any actual discussion, but we hope you find the fact that you can run the same benchmarks that we use useful. Enjoy!
