Testing – CPU Testing
First up we have Sisoftware Sandra. We ran the two CPU specific benchmarks the Processor Arithmetic and Processor Multi-Media. Higher scores are better here.
CINEBENCH uses a test scenario that makes use of all of your system’s processing power to render a photorealistic 3D scene (from the viral “No Keyframes” animation by AixSponza). This scene makes use of various algorithms to stress all available processor cores. Higher scores are better here.
The x264 HD Benchmark 5.0 encodes a 1080p video segment into the x264 format. There are two passes with 4 runs each. We average the 4 runs for each pass to give you what you see below. Obviously higher frames per second is better. You can see the motherboard takes a bit of a hit because of less memory.
