CPU Benchmarks


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 algorithms to stress all available processor cores. You can also run it with a single-core mode to give a single-core rating.




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




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



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, and 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 CPU's perform very well.



POV-Ray (Persistence of Vision Ray-Tracer) creates three-dimensional, photorealistic 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. It is also good for checking memory stability and overclocks, to see if the system is stable. The latest 3.6 version is a free download, and has the benchmark utility that we have run for these tests. Results show the average PPS (Pixels Per Second) taken by the rendering.




There is only a very slight difference in results that show for the POV-Ray test results; there are almost no differences in CPU's.



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, multi-threaded systems very efficiently, and is a good memory stability test.


Results in this test are the average of each pass being performed four times.




Again, we see just a slight difference in results between the two CPU's.



A good benchmark to run to compare CPU's is Fritz Chess.




As far as pure crunching power goes, these two CPU's fall right in line with each other, and again, show no real difference.



Geekbench 3 is a processor benchmark that uses single and multi-core performance, to simulate real-world scenarios.




Geekbench 3 allows us to run this bench, and then compare it to how similar systems perform. After looking at some of these results, we found that this system performs at just under what some of the more expensive systems are able to perform at.
