PowerMark is a benchmark produced by Futuremark that simulates different usage scenarios in order to determine battery life. It loops these different scenarios infinitely, until the battery hits 15%, and then gives us an estimated battery life time. For our testing, we use all four different scenarios. These are video playback, gaming, web browsing, and word processing.

 

The test is run once with the computer's Power Options set to Balanced.

One area that the R7 did excel in is battery life. As you can see in the chart above, the R7 produced a runtime of 3 hours and 15 minutes; one of the highest runtimes we've had for an Ultrabook.
