3DMark & Cinebench

Futuremark 3DMark 2.2.3509 – link

3DMark is a popular gaming performance benchmark that includes everything you need to benchmark your PC whether you’re gaming on a desktop PC, laptop, notebook, or a tablet. 3DMark includes seven benchmark tests and we’ll be running ‘Sky Diver’ that is aimed at gaming laptops and mid-range PCs.

Maxon Cinebench R15.038 – link 

CINEBENCH is a real-world cross platform test suite that evaluates your computer’s performance capabilities. CINEBENCH is based on MAXON’s award-winning animation software Cinema 4D, which is used extensively by studios and production houses worldwide for 3D content creation. MAXON software has been used in blockbuster movies such as Iron Man 3, Oblivion, Life of Pi or Prometheus and many more.

3DMark and Cinebench Benchmarks Results Summary: Moving up to 6-cores on the Intel Core i7-8700K has really helped this processor perform well. In Cinebench R15 we were getting 996 points multi and 198 points single on the Core i7-7700K. The new Core i7-8700K gets 1439 multi and 205 single in stock form and 1653 multi and 219 single when overclocked to 5,100 MHz on all cores. This is a massive performance jump and to think that the 8700K is coming out just 10 months after the 7700K was released! The Intel Core i5-8400’s multi-cpu score of 962 has it just below a stock Core i7-7700K,  so that $182 6-core processor has some great performance for the price.  The extra cores on the 8700K and 8400 processors also help on the 3DMark Fire Strike Physics tests and we see more solid scores on that benchmark.
