Intel Ivy Bridge Overclocking with the Core i7 3770K and Core i5 3570K CPUs - Benchmarks - CINEBENCH, Adobe Lightroom and MediaEspresso

We check out overclocking results from the new Ivy Bridge processors; the Core i7 3770K and Core i5 3570K.

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.

Looking at CINEBENCH performance we can see some really nice gains and while the 2600k does manage to sneak ahead slightly when overclocked, it's not the gains you'd expect from a CPU that was running 400MHz higher which is again showing us the efficiency of the new Ivy bridge platform.

Looking again in a real-world situation we can see that even though the IVB based processors are clocked lower they manage to perform similar to the higher clocked 2600k with the 3770k coming out a second ahead and the 3570k a second behind.

Thanks to the bigger MHz on offer from the 2600k it manages to just pick off the 3770k in the overclocked test. Again like some of our other benchmarks, though, the difference in speed doesn't look like it represents a 400MHz difference in processor speeds.
