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

Cinebench R15 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


HWBot X.265 Benchmark: This benchmark takes a H.264 video and converts the output to an H.265/HVEC format. Included are both 1080 and 4K presets to measure the FPS level achieved by the processor. The default benchmarks are used  with the result the FPS level at which the processor completed the workload. Measurement is in FPS.


Lower is Better


PCMark 8.2 is the latest iteration of Futuremark's popular PCMark system performance tool. This latest version is a comprehensive tool that runs through real life scenarios to test the install hardware using a series of real life application to simulate the load.


Higher is Better


In the Cinebench R15 testing, the single core scoring shows that the 4.2GHz gets to around a score of 190. When overclocked, the processors deliver another 10 points when you hit 4.5GHz. Looking at the multi-core results, core count is king with the Core i9 7980XE and i9 7960X delivering the highest level of performance. In HWBot's X.265 benchmark, after a re-run of most of the processors with version 2.0, it's evident that, again, core count makes a difference in the level of work you can get done in a set amount of time. In PCMark 8, the results are not as stellar by comparison, but the latest from Intel do fall closer to the middle of the pack. This may be related to some of the issues I experienced in the gaming tests.
