HDXPRT, the High Definition Experience & Performance Ratings Test, is a program designed to assess how well a PC can handle everyday media tasks, like photo editing, video conversion, and music editing, while using common consumer programs. The HDXPRT 4 setup process takes about 30 minutes on most computers, and a standard test run takes approximately an hour. After you finish testing, it presents results that are relevant and easy to understand.
HDXPRT 4 is part of the larger BenchmarkXPRT family of tools, or XPRTs, a set of apps that help you learn how all kinds of devices perform. In the tech biz, many people refer to these tools as “benchmarks.” The XPRTs test a wide range of devices on a level playing field, which means you can be sure you’re getting unbiased, fair information. We encourage you to explore all the tools at BenchmarkXPRT.com.
HDXPRT 4 runs a series of three tests, or scenarios, designed to assess how well a Windows 10 system handles real-world media tasks while using common consumer programs. The three scenarios are editing photos, converting videos, and editing music. HDXPRT produces scores for each scenario based on how long it took to complete the tasks, as well as an overall score. You can compare each of the scenario scores and the overall score to scores from other systems.
We invite and encourage everyone to submit benchmark results from their testing for inclusion in the public results table available here.
Please follow the process below to prepare results for submission:
After completion of a benchmark run, please copy the XML results file generated by the benchmark. You can find this file at C:\Program Files (x86)\HDXPRT4\HDXPRT4_Workloads\HDXPRT4_Results\Name of Run folder\Name of Run_result.xml.
The BenchmarkXPRT Development Community is a forum where registered members can contribute to the process of creating and improving benchmarks, including HDXPRT 4. If you are not currently a community member, we encourage you to join! (And yes, that means you – our community is open to everyone, from software developers to interested consumers.) Not only will you get early releases of future versions of the apps, but you’ll also be able to download the source code (available to members only) and influence the future of the apps.
