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.

You can see while the 3930K sits a little behind the 3960X, its performance is superior to the 2600K and other processors we have here. Overclocking our 3930K, though, and lining those clock speeds up with the 3960X EE, we can see that performance is extremely close between the two CPUs here.

Adobe Lightroom performance is also very strong with it only falling behind the more expensive 3960X.

MediaEspresso is a blazingly fast media universal converter that can transcode your videos, photos and music files and out put them to a huge range of portable devices including mobile phones, portable media players and even game consoles. With technologies like Smart Detect, Direct Sync and CyberLink's TrueTheater™ video enhancements, you can not only forget about complicated format, resolution and output settings, but your converted file will come out the other side looking better than when it went in!

As for MediaEspresso video converting, we continue to see the new Sandy Bridge-E platform dominate in this test. We can see the 3960X does manage to shave a bit more time off our encode when compared to the 3930K, but you can see against the other processors here the performance continues to be extremely strong.
