Developed by some folks from the University of Tokyo (yes, Japan), Super PI is a small utility that does just as the name implies. It figures PI to a set number of decimal places. Since PI is an infinite number to the right of the decimal point, the utility measures the time it takes to figure a set number of places. It runs the calculations a set number of times and gives a time for the completion of the task. This is a simple and effective way to measure the raw number crunching power of the processor being used to compile the results.

Now we move into raw CPU performance through Super Pi. Here we can see that the Core i7 has managed to knock a bit of time off the 1 million place time. However, it's the 32 million place time that has dropped by quite a bit.
