Intel Core i7-5775C Broadwell Processor Review


3DMark 2013 w/ Integrated Graphics

Futuremark 3DMark Tests

Futuremark 3DMark has three primary benchmark tests that you can run and which test you should be running depends on the system that you are benchmarking on.

  • Ice Storm – For mobile devices and entry-level PCs
  • Cloud Gate – For notebooks and home PCs
  • Fire Strike – For gaming PCs (extreme mode for those with multiple GPUs)

Since all of the benchmarks can be run on desktop PCs, we will run each of them on our Intel and AMD processors to see how they stack up.

Intel Core i7 5775C w/ Intel Iris Pro Graphics 6200:


Let’s take a closer look at 3DMark Cloud Gate as that is a best representative of the integrated graphics performance on these processors:


The Intel Core i7-5775C with Intel Iris Pro Graphics 6200 and 128MB of eDRAM had the highest overall score in 3DMark Cloud Gate that we have ever gotten from a processor with integrated graphics. The default score of 13,005 was insane, but when overclocked we came fairly close to hitting the 14k mark with an overall score of 13,779!


Benchmark Results: If you look at the game tests you’ll see that the Core i7-5775C Broadwell processor easily out performed everything in Game Test 1 & 2 with average frame rates well over 60 FPS! The Physics test on the stock processor was close to that of the Core i7-4790K, but when overclocked the Core i7-5775 had the highest Physics test score as well!
