Intel Core i7 5960X Extreme Edition Testing:

The first part of our testing will involve system-specific benchmarks.

 

Let's get started with Apophysis. This program is primarily used to render and generate fractal flame images. We will run this benchmark with the following settings:

  • Resolution: 2750 x 2048
  • Quality: 500
  • Limit Memory use: 512 MB

 

 

The measurement used is time to render, in minutes, to completion.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Lower is Better

 

WinRAR is a tool that archives and compresses large files to a manageable size. Here, we will test the time needed to compress files of 100 MB and 500 MB. Time will be measured in seconds.

 

ZIP:

  

Lower is Better

 

 

RAR:

  

Lower is Better

 

Geekbench 3:

Geekbench 3 is a benchmark that tests CPU and memory performance in an easy-to-use tool. The measure used for comparison is the total suite average score.

  
  

Higher is Better

 

Bibble 5:

This test consists of converting one hundred 8.2 MP RAW images to JPEG format. The original file size is 837 MB. The measure used for comparison is time needed to convert the file, in seconds.

  

Lower is Better

 

In Apophysis the low base core clock speed hits the results with a time penalty. The WinRAR testing shows that when using the ZIP algorithm the additional core count is not as effectively used as it is in the RAR compression test. In both the GeekBench and Bibble 5 tests the Core i7 5960X really stretches its legs under scenarios where its core count can be utilized.
