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.

Even though all three systems feature a Core i7-3770, the iBUYPOWER Revolt falls behind the other two systems. This could be due to clock speed differences, if the Bolt and Chimera were overclocked, or due to the custom motherboard. Either way, the Revolt scores nearly a whole point less than the other systems.

 

 

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.

wPrime continues the trend seen above, with the Revolt being significantly slower than the other desktops we've had through our lab. The Revolt is a full second slower than the Chimera in the 32M test and 27 seconds slower in the 1024M test.
