Intel Core i7-875K (Socket 1156) Unlocked CPU - Synthetic Tests - Part II

Intel has upped the overclocking ante on their CPU line-up with a new "K" series CPU. Will these unlocked parts really help with your OC addiction?

Here is where we dig out the FutureMark tests.

 

PCMark Vantage

 

Version and / or Patch Used: 1.0.0.0
Developer Homepage: http://www.futuremark.com/

For overall system performance we use PCMark Vantage. This is run in both x86 and x64 mode to give the best indication of performance.

In PCMark Vantage the 875K does very well at both stock and overclocked speeds.

 


3DMark Vantage

 

Version and / or Patch Used: 1.0.1
Developer Homepage: http://www.futuremark.com/

For synthetic gaming tests we used the industry standard and overlockers bragging tool 3DMark Vantage. This is a test that strives to mimic the impact modern games have on a system. Futuremark went a long way to change from the early days of graphics driven tests to a broader approach including physics, AI and more advanced graphics simulations.

 

3DMark Vantage uses the DX10 API in addition to having support for PhysX. As we are no longer using an NVIDIA GPU for testing (at least until we can get a GTX 4xx card) you will only see the CPU based PhysX results in the scores. For testing we use the Performance test run.

Again, we see a good showing for performance. The numbers here are where we would expect them to be.

 


Cinebench R11.5 x64

 

Version and / or Patch Used: R11.5 x64

Cinebench is a synthetic rendering tool developed by Maxon. Maxon is the same company that developed Cinema4D, another industry leading 3D Animation application. Cinebench R11.5 tests your systems ability to render across a single and multiple CPU cores. It also tests your systems ability to process OpenGL information.

In Cinebench R11.5 we again see performance numbers in line with the speeds (both stock and overclocked). Nothing really new to talk about here, except for the interesting fact that even at a higher clock speed the 875K is not able to outperform the AMD Phenom II X6.
