Testing:

ScienceMark tests real world performance instead of using synthetic benchmarks. For this test, we ran the benchmark suite and will use the overall score for comparison.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

  

  

 

 

Higher is Better

 

CineBench 10 is useful for testing your system, CPU, and OpenGL capabilities using the software program CINEMA 4D. We will be using the default tests for this benchmark.

 

Higher is Better

 

CineBench 11.5 is the latest iteration of this popular benchmark that features a new look to the interface. This test now has a simple GPU and CPU test built in.

Higher is Better

 

HD Tune measures disk performance to make comparisons between drives or disk controllers.

In the Sciencemark testing the Core i7 980X delivers performance that is about what the clock speed will deliver. The overclocked results are a large step above what the stock CPU's deliver. The Cinebench single CPU test shows clock speed is a determining factor in performance while the multi core test shows the advantage of having more cores in multi threaded applications. Maxon's Cinebench 11.5 is an update for this popular benchmark that shows off the abilities of the 980X.
