Intel Core i7-5775C 3.3GHz Broadwell LGA-1150 CPU Performance Overview

Out of the Box Performance: CINEBENCH, PCMark 8, wPrime






PCMark 8 Home Test





PCMark 8: Microsoft Office Test




PCMark 8: Photoshop Test








CINEBENCH's OpenCL test uses the iGP of each CPU (excluding the 5960X), and shows the advantages of the Intel Iris Pro graphics compared to Intel's HD 4600. CINEBENCH scores for the CPU are pretty much where you would expect, with the 4790K in the lead because of the clock speed boost, but the 5775C isn't lagging too far behind.


PCMark Home also takes into account iGP when it runs its tests. The Microsoft Office test repeats tasks with Word, PowerPoint, and Excel and times how long it takes to complete the tasks. It is also quite dependent on clock speeds, and the 4790K with its 4.4GHz Turbo Boost really performs well. It is also worth noting how close the 5775C and 4770K are; the extra 200MHz base and Turbo on the 4770K really helps its performance, but the 5775C still holds its ground.


The PCMark 8 Photoshop test runs images through Adobe Photoshop, and spits out the score in seconds (lower is better) since I didn't run the entire Abode Suite. It's almost like the inverse of the MS Office test, with heavy dependence on clock speeds. The wPrime scores take into account multithreaded CPU performance, with little reliance on memory bandwidth, and the 5775C beats out the 4770K this time.
