System Mechanic® Performance Benchmarking

89% faster 39% faster downloads 17% improved 8.6% improved 18% improved

Purpose To show computer performance improvement using iolo`s System Mechanic software to repair and optimize Windows PCs. iolo technologies (iolo) recently released System Mechanic v16.5.

  • Version 16.5 has been re-written from the ground up, with every feature in the product re-engineered for improved functionality and performance.

  • Includes new optimization features for Windows 10, designed to increase privacy and reduce internet bandwidth demands.

This paper is the result of iolo Labs comprehensive and reproducible benchmark testing, with results that users can examine for themselves. Tests were conducted that specifically showed performance improvement of:

  • PC Boot Time

  • Internet (Download Speed)

  • CPU (Processor)

  • RAM (Memory)

  • GPU (Graphics)

  • Drives (HDDs and SSDs)


  • Install commonly used programs (41) and browser add-ons (6) to replicate an in-use PC, in a manner that is reproducible and produces consistent results.

    • Installed software includes:

    • Security software, VPN software, PDF readers, gaming and entertainment platforms, media players/editors, productivity applications, etc.

  • Collect performance metrics on the reproduction of an in-use PC before applying System Mechanic

  • Collect performance metrics on the reproduction of an in-use PC after optimizing with System Mechanic

  • Run each test 5 times before and 5 times after System Mechanic installation, remove the highest and lowest scores, and then average the remaining 3 to calculate final scores.

  • Report improvements (in each test) after PCs have been optimized.

Windows Event Logs

  • To measure Windows startup times

GeekBench 4 by Primate Labs

  • GeekBench is focused on testing the performance of CPUs. It runs workloads that model real-world tasks (e.g., running applications) in order to offer meaningful, real-world like, results..

  • GeekBench is used by organizations to demonstrate the processing capabilities of their products.

NovaBench 3 by Novawave Inc.

  • NovaBench tests the four primary components of a PC. On completion, it scores the PC based on an aggregate sum, and also offers individual scores for each component.

  • Its test perform floating point arithmetic, integer arithmetic, and MD5 Hashing to evaluate CPU performance.

  • It tests graphics processing units (GPUs) for 3D Graphics, RAM for read and write speed, and write speed of storage devices.

PerformanceTest 9.0 by PassMark Software

  • PerformanceTest evaluates the four primary components of a PC, running 32 various sub-tests in the process.

  • To measure a CPU`s capabilities it runs mathematical operations, compression, encryption, and physics.

  • To measure graphic performance it tests vectors, bitmaps, fonts, text, GUI elements, and DirectX 9 to DirectX 12 in 4K resolution.

  • To measure drive performance it tests reading, writing & seeking within disk files + IOPS.

  • It benchmarks access speeds and latency to system RAM.

Heaven 4.0 by Unigine Corp

  • Heaven Benchmark is a GPU benchmark program used to evaluate graphic (i.e, gaming graphics) performance.

  • It stresses graphic cards to their limits to determine the stability of a GPU under extreme conditions.

  • In addition to an overall score, it also measures Frames Per Second (FPS).
