The Results screen shows results from the current system. 

The All Benchmarks view lists all available results. Choose the Performance, Battery or Storage view to show only those results.

You can import results from other systems by clicking on the Options button and selecting Import result

To rename a result file or add a description, right-click on the result and choose Edit result. To delete results, first select the results, then click Delete. Alternatively, you can right-click on a result and choose Delete

Result details screen

Double-click on a result to open it or right-click and choose View result

The result screen is divided into sections.

  • Benchmark scores
  • Monitoring
  • Additional Outputs
  • System information.

Benchmark scores

PCMark 10 performance benchmarks produce several scores and results. The overall benchmark score is the top-level result, ideal for comparing systems. The higher the score, the better the performance.

Below the overall score, you’ll find a score for each of the benchmark’s test groups. A test group is a collection of workloads that share a common theme or purpose.

Under each test group score, you’ll see its workloads and their scores. A workload is a test designed around a specific activity, task, or application. You can expand a workload to see its low-level results.

PCMark 10 Battery Life test results are presented in hours and minutes. The Modern Office battery life scenario also produces a performance score in addition to its battery life result.

The score validation box is either green, showing ‘Valid score’ if the result passes our checks; or red, showing details of any errors or problems with the run. You can click on the [?] icon in both cases for more information.


Hardware monitoring charts show how various metrics changed during the test. Monitoring is not available for Battery Life results.

Click on the legend to see the monitoring chart for the chosen metric. Click on Monitoring details to expand the view and see all the charts at once.

Move your mouse over the chart to see the values for each metric at that point in time. This helps you quantify any peaks and dips in performance.

  • Temperature shows how CPU temperature and GPU temperature changed during the benchmark run.
  • Frequency shows how CPU frequency, GPU core clock and GPU memory clock changed during the benchmark run.
  • Power Consumption shows how CPU power consumption changed during the benchmark run.
  • GPU Load shows how GPU load changed during the benchmark run.
  • Battery how the battery charge level changed during the benchmark run.

Additional Outputs

This section lists the devices that were used by the APIs for the benchmark run.

System information

This section of the result screen shows information about the hardware components in your system, a timestamp for the result, and the SystemInfo and PCMark 10 application version numbers for the benchmark run.

You can expand this section to see more hardware details.

Compare results

You can compare up to four results side-by-side in the app. Select at least two results from the Results screen, then click the Compare button. Or, from the Result details view, click the Compare button then select another result from the list. Please note that you can only compare scores from the same test.

Scores from different PCMark 10 tests are not comparable. Each test produces its own score. You should only compare scores from the same test.

Result export

In PCMark 10 Professional Edition, you can export results as PDF or XML.

The PDF result report includes hardware monitoring graphs to provide a full view of the benchmark run making it easier to store and share test results. The PDF report can also be customized with your own logo. Go to the Options screen in PCMark 10 application to set up your logo file.
