NOPE that's why we have sites like this where they are tested.. my god
Folks who have been doing this a while usually quote more than just one site. In the past, PassMark has shown very little in terms of GPU performance. It's what's known as a Synthetic benchmark, and for some folks, it's not enough to measure general GPU/APU performance. This is why folks usually (and I do try) list multiple sources so that they're backed up (which is what I did in this case, I took your recommendation and compared it with a Guru3D result).
Synthetic benchmarks carry a nasty stigma, after all, if they're synthetic, why use them to compare against real world testing? That's my point here.
If you'd like to get butthurt over that aspect, be my guest.
