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.




Using the new E5-2698 v3 16-core processor, we have a very nice score in CINEBENCH 11.5. As of this writing, the 43.02 score is the highest we have seen in the lab. The new Haswell-EP processor features, and the number of cores used, provide the number crunching power for this test. It's amazing just how much CPU power these new Haswell-EP processors brings to the table.


This is an impressive score coming out of the gate on our bench runs. We think this kind of performance may possibly carry on to the rest of the benchmarks.







Just like in the CINEBENCH 11.5 results, the E5-2698 v3's 16-core processors used on the ASRock EP2C612D16FM motherboard have also reached a new high score for us in CINEBENCH R15.





wPrime is a leading multi-threaded 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's cooling is performing.




wPrime is one of those benches that can really stress the system, and is difficult to get low scores with. In this case, the ASRock EP2C612D16FM and E5-2698 v3's processors just nailed it, and not by a little. We see a clear lead of above ten seconds compared to last gen processors and setups. It also stands up very strong to the single-threaded runs. We see very impressive scores here.
