Out of the Box Performance: Handbrake, SuperPI, and ScienceMark


Blender Beta




HandBrake UHD Video Transcoder (x264)




HandBrake HD Video Transcoder (x264)








SuperPI Mod 1.5





Blender shows some improvement due to increases in AVX turbo frequency. Both Handbrake tests show some very decent gains; we weren't expecting 200-400MHz to make such a big difference. ScienceMark's mixed workload shows some minor improvements compared to the 7980XE. SuperPI reflects the 100MHz increase in single core boost from Turbo Boost Max 3.
