7-Zip, CPU-Z, 3DMark & Cinebench

7-Zip 18.01 – link

7-Zip is a file archiver with a high compression ratio. 7-Zip is free software with open source.

CPU-Z 1.85 – link

CPU-Z is a freeware that gathers information on some of the main devices of your system. CPU-Z also has a built-in benchmark that has become pretty popular since this application is widely used. The benchmark computes a 2-dimensional noise function, that could typically be used in a game to generate a procedural map. The code is written in C++, and compiled with Visual C++ 2008. No special instruction set is used, but the x64 version uses scalar SSE/SSE2 instructions to achieve floating point operations, whereas the 32-bit version keeps using the legacy x87 instructions, resulting in almost half of the x64 performance.

Futuremark 3DMark 2.4.4264 – 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 ‘Fire Strike’ that is the most popular one to run.

Fire Strike Benchmarks Results Summary: When it comes to 3DMark Fire Strike, the 9900K had the highest overall score of anything we have tested. Oddly enough, the graphics score was higher on the AMD Ryzen 7 2700X and Ryzen 7 2700 processors. The 9900K dominated in the combined workload test though and that helped give it the win in the overall test.

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 and Prometheus and many more.

Cinebench Benchmarks Results Summary: The Intel Core i9-9900K turned in an impressive score of 2072 in the multi-CPU benchmark and 221 in the single-core benchmark. This is 14% faster than the Ryzen 7 2700X on the all core CPU test.
