Intel Core i9 7900X & Core i7 7740X Testing:

Office 2016 Black Scholes model: This test takes a 70.1 MB Microsoft Excel spreadsheet and performs about 28,000 sets of calculations that represent many of the most commonly used calculations in Excel. The measure of this test is the amount of time it takes to refresh the sheet.



Lower Is Better


POV-Ray 3.7: This program features a built-in benchmark that renders an image using Ray Tracing. The latest versions offer support for SMP (Symmetric Multi-Processing), enabling the workload to be spread across several cores for quicker completion.


Higher Is Better


ProShow Gold: This program is used to take a collection of images and stitch them together in a slide show, using a variety of transitions and effects, to make a compelling show you can share with friends and family. The workload consists of 29 high-resolution images that are stitched into a 3-minute 30 second video file using multiple transitions.


Lower Is Better


HandBrake 1.0: HandBrake is an open source application used to transcode multiple video formats to a high quality h.264 output format. The test file size is 128 MB in size and 43 seconds in length.


Lower Is Better


In each of these workloads, the multi-threaded performance of the Core i9 7900X is on display. All 10 cores and 20 work threads do indeed deliver higher levels of performance. The Core i7 7740X compares well in the Office 2016 and the Ray Tracing test, however it does not fare as well against the Core i7 7700K in the ProShow Gold and HandBrake workloads.
