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 11 and MediaEspresso show performance that again matches the Z77 Extreme6 offering from ASRock. We can see that our Maximus V GENE from ASUS does sneak out a little in both benchmarks.

Overclocked, though, you can see some really strong performance gains with MediaEspresso showing us the real-world benefits of such a strong overclock as 3 1/2 minutes is shaved off our encode time.
