BENCHMARKING

 

POV-RAY BETA 3.7 v29


As a good overall and very processor intensive benchmark, POV-Ray tests the photo rendering ability of any processor. The beta version being used today allows for multi-core benchmarking.



This is where things started off rather interesting. Although the processor was technically faster, the QX9770 core was able to accomplish the task quicker. Seems that this benchmark favored the older processors rather than the newer ones.



 

 

 

 

CINEBENCH 10 RENDERING BENCHMARK


Cinebench is an excellent rendering benchmark to see how a processor will manage a set photo rendering task.



Cinebench rendering shows that this newer and more mainstream focused processor performed nearly as well as the Nehalem i7-965 Extreme edition when the 870 had the Turbo mode enabled. Turning the turbo mode off did show a relative drop in performance but it still out performed the i7-920 by a decent margin.

 

PCMARK 2005 CPU BENCHMARK


PCMark 2005 is an excellent basic benchmark that tests the CPU by putting it through day to day tasks such as file transfer, audio compression etc.



Seeing this benchmark is a great overall gauge of how a processor will do in a standard multi-task computing environment. The turbo mode enabled i7-870 did utilize the limited core usage of this particular benchmark. With it only using a couple cores, it pushed the overclock up and over 3.4Ghz which is a 470Mhz improvement. As you see, it makes a difference.
