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 for 3D content creation by studios and production houses worldwide. MAXON software has been used in blockbuster movies such as Spider-Man, Star Wars, The Chronicles of Narnia, and many more.
The Xeon in the Z1 produced a respectable core of 7.27. While certainly not the fastest CPU we've tested, it is chosen for its reliability, and its ability to make use of ECC memory, which is something the workstation crowd usually demands.

wPrime is a leading multithreaded benchmark for x86 processors that tests your processor performance. It does this 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 sqrt-ing), 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 shows similar findings. The CPU is by no means as fast as an overclocked 3770K, but is once again chosen for its reliability and ability to use ECC memory. Faster clocked Xeons are available, which would boost the Z1 into the range of a gaming desktop.
