CINEBENCH is a real-world cross platform test suite that evaluates your computer's performance capabilities. CINEBENCH is based on MAXON's award-winning animation software CINEMA 4D, which is used extensively by studios and production houses worldwide for 3D content creation. MAXON software has been used in blockbuster movies such as Spider-Man, Star Wars, The Chronicles of Narnia and many more.

 

CINEBENCH is the perfect tool to compare CPU and graphics performance across various systems and platforms (Windows and Mac OS X). And best of all: It's completely free.

As we start to move into some real-world tests we start to see the performance increase over the 2500k in a real-world environment. Overall we've got a nice boost, but you can see that the i7 based 2600k still sits ahead.

Lightroom on the other hand paints a different picture and we can see that performance on the new Ivy Bridge based i5 3570k is strong with only the Sandy Bridge-E based processors coming out ahead.

Media Espresso also paints a nice picture of how the performance differs between the two i5 based processors with a decent chunk of time being shaved off the overall speed when it comes to the encode process.
