BENCHMARKING


SUPER PI (1MEG CALCULATION)


This record-breaking program was ported to personal computer environment such as Windows NT and Windows 95 and called Super PI. In order to calculate 33.55 million digits, it takes within 3 days with Pentium 90MHz, 40MB main memory and 340MB available storage.



Even with the triple channel memory removed, the new i7-870 with the turbo mode enabled did yield an improvement. Without the turbo, the processor was only slightly faster than a i7-920.

 

PASSMARK v6.1 FULL PROCESSOR BENCHMARK


Passmark is a new benchmark we will be using on Tweaknews to test and overall score a processors performance based on several tasks accomplished.



Through Passmark's barrage of processor tests, the i7-870 still held up very strong though the i7-965XE did hold up better to the overall barrage of tests that make up this one benchmark score.

 

HOC CRYSIS CPU BENCHMARK (1024X768 : MAX DETAIL SETTINGS)


HOC released a benchmark that allows you to use Crysis as a processor benchmarking tool. The results are as follows.



This is where a person with a Core 2 Quad or a Core 2 Duo needs to thing about a possible upgrade. The difference seen here is pretty substantial and the increased bandwidth does yield a gaming framerate improvement.

 

 

 

 

 

HOC CRYSIS VIDEOCARD BENCHMARK (1024X768 : MAX DETAIL SETTINGS)


Also, in addition to the CPU benchmark, there is a good videocard benchmark that will also show any difference in processor performance.



The same results were seen again. An overall increase of one frame per second average was noted.
