Intel 6th Generation Core i7 6700K Review

   -   

Intel 6th Generation Core i7 6700K Testing:

The first part of our testing will involve system-specific benchmarks.

 

Let's get started with Apophysis. This program is primarily used to render and generate fractal flame images. We will run this benchmark with the following settings:

  • Resolution: 2750 x 2048
  • Quality: 500
  • Limit Memory use: 512 MB

 

 

The measurement used is time to render, in minutes, to completion.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Lower is Better

 

WinRAR is a tool that archives and compresses large files to a manageable size. Here, we will test the time needed to compress files of 100 MB and 500 MB. Time will be measured in seconds.

 

RAR:

  

Lower is Better

 

 

ZIP:

  

Lower is Better

 

Geekbench 3:

Geekbench 3 is a benchmark that tests CPU and memory performance in an easy-to-use tool. The measure used for comparison is the total suite average score.

  
  

Higher is Better

 

Bibble 5:

This test consists of converting one hundred 8.2 MP RAW images to JPEG format. The original file size is 837 MB. The measure used for comparison is time needed to convert the file, in seconds.

  

Lower is Better

 

In Apophysis, Intel's 6th Generation Core i7 6700K starts off what looks like a series of results that show that even running a comparable clock speed to the Core i7 4790K, the 6th Generation has the 4th Gen chips covered as far as performance goes in just about all these tests. Overclocking does not improve the margin over the previous generation chips, but does offer up excellent performance.
