Testing:

Office 2007 Excel Big Number Crunch:This test takes a 6.2MB MIcrosoft Excel speadsheet and performs about 28,000 sets of calculations that many of the most commonly used calculations in Excel. The measure of this test is how long 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 (Symetric MultiProcessing) enabling the workload to be spread across the cores for a quicker completion.

Higher Is Better

 

PCMark Vantage x64 is used to measure complete system performance. We will be running a series of tests to gauge performance of each individual CPU to see which CPU, if any, rises above the others.

 

In the Excel Big Number Crunch testing the i5 750 without hyperthreading easily out performed the best from AMD. The 870 with its higher clock speed out performed the i7 920. In POV Ray the slower clock speed on the i5 750 equated to a slightly slower performance while being clocked from 600 to 800MHz slower. The 870 easily pulled away from the AMD 965 and 955. The numbers in PCMark Vantage speek for themselves and show the strength of Intels latest cores.
