Windows Vista is not remembered as a good operating system. It was a version of Windows, which aimed to test the new technology. One of Vista’s innovations was the Windows System Assessment Tool, a computer benchmarking tool.
We remember that users were, for the most part, dissatisfied with this tool, but it survived in versions of Windows 7 and 8, just to be removed in version 8.1. Users who have criticized this tool have started lamenting their fate and demanding that it be returned. However, Microsoft remained silent.
As it usually happens, when Microsoft doesn’t want to do something, there are third-party programs to fill the gap. Introducing Xiret, a free program for Windows Vista, 7, 8, and 10 that tests your computer’s performance.
How does Xiret work?
Xiret does not require installation. When you download it, all you have to do is unzip the folder and run the .exe file. The program can also be run from a USB drive, so testing multiple computers is quick and easy. For the program to work, you need to have the Microsoft .NET Framework installed on your computer.
When you run Xiret, at first glance, nothing will happen. This is because the program is immediately thrown to the test, and its menu is displayed only after obtaining the results. The test is designed to examine the performance of your computer and to evaluate each component separately. It evaluates CPU, RAM, GPU ( in desktop and gaming mode), and hard drive.
At the end of the test, a nice and clean menu will appear in which each tested component will receive a grade. You will also have an insight into what type of test was conducted. You can save test results in TXT, JPG, PNG, and BMP format and upload them directly to Imgur. Also, computer analysis can be performed in two ways, by running tests in normal and In-depth mode.
Xiret is a great tool for testing computer performance, intended for beginners. It does not rely on extensive computer knowledge, it is very easy to use, and the results are easy to interpret.
