PCMark 10 is getting two more benchmarks

Battery life and cross-platform Office tests

When you get a new laptop and you have to run some benchmarks, it isn't easy find a proper way for test the battery life. There isn't any standardized laptop battery testing methodology. We have our own testing style, but Techpowerup or HardwareUpgrade have another one and so on.

Underwriter's Laboratories (UL), the group that purchased Futuremark back in 2014, just announced that PCMark 10 will come with two new benchmarks and one of which is a battery life test. According to UL, PCM10 battery life will be a realistic simulation of daily usage. It'll test four types of battery life: office work, video playback, gaming, and idle time.

Furthermore the company will add an Office test. This benchmark will run on both x86-64 and ARM machines and will test performance in Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and the Edge browser.

Battery test will be available in March, while Office test will be add by the end of summer.
