Cinebench 11.5

 

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 this test with a single core mode to give a single core rating.

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

 

 

Cinebench R15

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

 

 

wPrime

 

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; it also works 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 CPUs perform very well.

 

 

POV-Ray

 

POV-Ray (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 are 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

 

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 systems 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.
