CPU Benchmarks


CINEBENCH is a real-world cross platform test suite that evaluates your computer's performance capabilities. The test scenario uses all of your system's processing power to render a photorealistic 3D scene. This scene makes use of various different algorithms to stress all available processor cores. You can also run with a single core mode to give a single core rating.

We find very close results, but with slightly better score with the i7-4771.

Again we find very close results, but with slightly better score with the i7-4771.



wPrime is a leading multithreaded benchmark for x86 processors that tests your processor performance. This is a great test to use to rate the system speed, also as a stress test to see how well the system cooling is performing.

This is a very good test and you can see that these CPU's perform very well.



The Persistence of Vision Ray-Tracer creates three-dimensional, photo-realistic images using a rendering technique called ray tracing. Ray tracing is not a fast process by any means, but it produces very high quality images with realistic reflections, shading, perspective and other effects.


This is a very good test to stress CPU threads and check memory stability and overclocks to see if the system is stable. The latest version 3.6 is a free download and has a benchmark utility that we have run for these tests. Results displayed showing the average PPS (pixels per second) that the render took.

Just a very slight difference in results here that shows for the POV-Ray test results there are almost no difference in CPU's.



X264 HD Benchmark measures how fast your computer can encode a 1080p video clip into a high quality x264 video file. This benchmark uses multi-core/threaded system very efficiently and is a good memory stability test.


Results in this test are the average of each pass performed four times.

Again, we see just a very slight difference in results between the two CPU's.



A good benchmark to run is Fritz Chess to compare CPU's.

As far as pure crunching power goes, these two CPU's fall right in line with each other, and again show no real difference.
