we want to run benchmark tests on our testing PC.
We were suprised that the benchmark sometimes shows strong deviations. (sometimes only 20% of the best benchmark value, with several windows versions).
I can not explain what happens there.
We even made an image of the pc's hard drive that we reinstall every time we run the (two) benchmarks.
Still we have those deviations.
The next time when i will do some testing i will check if the following services are not running
- the index service
- the defragmentation service
- the antivir service
Do you have any ideas what has do be stopped/made/run in addition to the above to make the benchmark more consistent.
I hope this is the right forum for this.
