Games with built-in benchmarks 2019: how to benchmark your PC

Gaming, News

These games include built-in benchmarks, making them useful for testing gaming PCs and laptops. This way, you can test how strong your PC is in a real game, getting results that are easily comparable between different machines running different hardware. Integrated benchmarks are also handy if you’re overclocking or adjusting game settings, as you can see how much of a difference your changes are making in a controlled environment.

For each game, we’ll list its year of release and a link to purchase it online at a discounted price. Tests that we’ve found particularly useful for testing are bolded, often because their benchmarks are particularly challenging or give more detailed results instead of a flat fps average.

If you found this list useful, consider buying your game via one of the links below to give us a few cents. This provides the funds we need to buy these games and test out their benchmarks. Thank you!

Also, if you spot a game that includes a built-in benchmark that isn’t on this list, please let us know in the comments below. Thanks to everyone who has contributed to the list so far!
