Cinebench 11.5

 

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.

Here we get our first look at how these two different CPU's perform. The Xeon E5-2689 has a lower single core score because of its clock speed, but it really gets boost in multi-threaded scores. That is the main reason you would want to go to a higher core count in the first place.

 

Cinebench R15

Just like in the Cinebench 11.5 results, the Xeon E5-2689 is lower in single thread score, but takes off in multi-threaded results.

 

wPrime

 

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 systems cooling is performing.

wPrime scores are not that impressive with the Xeon E5-2689. The clock speed is what is really holding this back.
