Futuremark announced it has issued an update for PCMark 8 that enables Windows 8.1 compatibility:
PCMark 8 Professional Edition v1.1.111

This update adds compatibility with Windows 8.1 and Internet Explorer 11, introduces new options for testing OpenCL, and adds detailed hardware monitoring graphs.
  • Scores from the Work, Storage and Applications benchmarks are not affected by this update.
  • Scores from the Home and Creative benchmarks should not be compared with scores from previous versions of PCMark 8 due to the addition of new run modes for those tests.

    PCMark v1.1.111 uses a new installer. If your system has an older version of PCMark 8 installed, you should manually uninstall it using Add/Remove Programs in the Windows Control Panel before installing this update. You should also manually uninstall SystemInfo.

  • The Home and Creative benchmarks now offer a choice of run modes.
  • Conventional mode does not use OpenCL, reflecting how the majority of software works today.
  • Accelerated mode uses OpenCL acceleration, anticipating how software will work in the future.
  • New interactive graphs show hardware monitoring data from each benchmark run.

  • Progress windows now show estimated time for each test.
  • SystemInfo scan is now at least 50% faster.

  • Compatible with Windows 8.1.
  • Compatible with Internet Explorer 11.
  • SystemInfo updated to v4.21 for improved compatibility with the latest hardware.
  • New troubleshooting options for OpenCL device selection in Help tab.

  • Fixed an issue in the Web Browsing test that could cause the test to hang.
  • Fixed an issue with Video Chat and Video Group Chat showing empty windows.
  • Fixed a bug that could cause Video Chat tests to return inaccurate results.
  • Fixed a crash on 32 bit versions of Windows.
