PCMark 7 includes a range of tests that give different views of your system's performance. In the Advanced Edition you can choose which tests to run. The common use and hardware component tests are unavailable in the Basic Edition.
Overall system performance is measured by the PCMark test. This is the only test that returns an official PCMark score. The Lightweight test measures the system capabilities of entry-level systems and mobility platforms unable to run the PCMark test, but it does not generate a PCMark score. Common use performance is measured by the scenario tests - Entertainment, Creativity and Production - each of which results in a scenario score. Hardware component performance is measured by the hardware tests - Computation and Storage - each of which results in a hardware score.
PCMark 7 performance is similar to that of our other Z68 board and we again see that strong performance increase when we crank up those clock speeds with an increase equating to just over 20%.

Out of the box the encode time on the G1.Sniper2 comes in at just over 20 minutes. Start to overclock, though, and you can see a nice 25% is shaved off that total time with the encode process taking just over 15 minutes.
