Intel Core i9 7900X & Core i7 7740X 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.

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 Core i7 7740X is right on the performance of the Core i7 7700K, both stock and overclocked. The Core i9 7900X seems to mirror up with the Broadwell-E 6950X. In this test, we see the two newest releases from Intel well ahead of the AMD Ryzen chips. In the WinRAR testing, the Core i9 7900X is the higher performing processor, both stock and overclocked, in the RAR compression test, while the Core i7 7740X is the highest performer in the ZIP compression test. Bibble 5 is all about multi-threaded workloads, so a higher core count is going to deliver a lower time to completion. The Skylake X processor with its higher boost clock speeds outperforms the Core i7 6950X, both stock and overclocked.
