CINEBENCH's OpenGL tests show how strong the integrated graphics in the 7870K are, but in the CPU tests it also shows one of the 7870K's weaknesses, its CPU performance. While its CPU performance is comparable to Intel Pentium/i3 CPU's around the same price point, you have to go to the AMD FX series to get comparable performance to a Core i7. In PCMark the 7870K holds its own against the i7, and overclocking does provide noticeable gains.
