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 by studios and production houses worldwide for 3D content creation. MAXON software has been used in blockbuster movies such as Spider-Man, Star Wars, The Chronicles of Narnia and many more.

CINEBENCH is the perfect tool to compare CPU and graphics performance across various systems and platforms (Windows and Mac OS X). And best of all: It's completely free.

Looking at CINEBENCH performance we can see a nice improvement over the i5 offerings. Compared to the 2600k, though, there's not much in it with performance looking pretty similar.

Lightroom also sees some nice improvements over the Sandy Bridge setups. In this situation we again see that only the more expensive X79 based Sandy Bridge-E processors manage to come out ahead.
