Testing:

ScienceMark tests real world performance instead of using synthetic benchmarks. For this test, we ran the benchmark suite and will use the overall score for comparison.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

  

  

 

 

   

Higher Is Better

 

CineBench 10 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

 

CineBench 11.5 is the latest iteration of this popular benchmark that features a new look to the interface. This test now has a simple GPU and CPU test built in.

   

Higher Is Better

 

HD Tune measures disk performance to make comparisons between drives or disk controllers.

In the Sciencemark testing, the 2600K delivers the highest score in the stock testing and the 2500K, by virtue of its 4.77GHz clock speed, took the overclocked test. In the Cinebench 10 Single CPU tests, the new processors from Intel delivered excellent results while, when you get to the multiple CPU tests, the Sandybridge processors only fall behind the Corei7 980X. This trend is the same in Cinebench 11.5, showing how strong these new processors are. In the HD Tune testing, the results were in the middle of the pack for average read speeds, burst speed and access time.
