Cinebench 11.5

 

Version and / or Patch Used: R11.5 build CB25720DEMO

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.

Since both systems in the chart above feature the same Intel Core i7-3770K, performance is pretty close to identical. The Bolt performs just slightly worse than the iBUYPOWER Chimera 4SE.

 

 

wPrime

 

Version and / or Patch Used: 2.09

wPrime is a leading multithreaded benchmark for x86 processors that tests your processor performance by calculating square roots with a recursive call of Newton's method for estimating functions, with f(x)=x2-k, where k is the number we're sqrting, until Sgn(f(x)/f'(x)) does not equal that of the previous iteration, starting with an estimation of k/2. It then uses an iterative calling of the estimation method a set amount of times to increase the accuracy of the results. It then confirms that n(k)2=k to ensure the calculation was correct. It repeats this for all numbers from 1 to the requested maximum.

Again, the two systems perform pretty similarly due to the use of the same CPU. The Bolt again performs just slightly worse, producing a 32M time of 6.536 seconds and a 1024M time of 202.521 seconds.
