Intel Core i7 6950X Extreme Edition Broadwell-E Overclocked: 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.

 

WinRAR is a tool that archives and compresses large files to a manageable size. Here, we will test the time needed to compress a 1000MB file full of various size file types. Completion time will be measured in seconds.

 
 

 

Geekbench 3:

Geekbench 3 is a benchmark that tests CPU and memory performance in an easy-to-use tool. The measure used for comparison are the suite single and multi core results.

 
 

 

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.

 

In each of these tests, Intel's Broadwell-E seems to have a performance advantage in most of the tests. The lower base core clock speed hurts performance in single threaded applications, but when multiple cores can be leveraged the performance scales well. When you add overclocking to the equation, the performance scales even further, dropping the time to complete tasks significantly.
