benchmak - A set of tests normally done during the feasibility study, to determine the technical standards to which the material should be digitised. Quality assurance procedures should measure the digitized images against these benchmarks.

my definition. its just a test to see how your computer or whatever your testing does good or bad in. like 3Dmark05, thats a benchmark. aquamark. pcmark.

"A test used to compare performance of hardware and/or software. Many trade magazines have developed their own benchmark tests, which they use when reviewing a class of products. When comparing benchmark results, it is important to know exactly what the benchmarks are designed to test. A benchmark that tests graphics speed, for example, may be irrelevant to you if the type of graphical applications you use are different from those used in the test"
