Intel Core i9 7980XE & Core i9 7960X Testing:

SiSoft Sandra is a diagnostic utility and synthetic benchmarking program. Sandra allows you to view your hardware at a higher level to be more helpful. For this benchmark, I will be running a broad spectrum of tests to gauge the performance of key functions of the CPUs.

Processor Arithmetic


Multi-Core Efficiency



Memory Bandwidth



Cache and Memory




AIDA64 Extreme Edition is a software utility designed for hardware diagnosis and benchmarking. I will be using the CPU Queen test that looks for the solution to the "Queens" problem on a 10x10 chessboard. This tests the branch prediction capabilities of the processor. The FPU Mandel test measures double precision floating point performance through the computation of several frames of the "Mandelbrot" fractal.



In this series of tests, the newest high-end desktop processors from Intel deliver impressive performance across the board. The one area where these processors are underperforming is in the inter-core latency test, but with 16 and 18 cores on tap, it can be expected.
