CPU-ID’s CPU-Z has been a popular freeware utility for a long time, that gathers system information on the PC into one location. With the latest version 1.73 they introduced a couple of new features. One of these new features is the integrated CPU Benchmark that provides a score and a Reference CPU that you can choose from a drop down menu.
Benchmark Results: CPU-Z’s new benchmark shows us a difference of around 33% when looking at single threaded processes! That’s a huge jump in performance. Of course the multi-threaded score will jump quite a bit more as it will utilize the multiple cores and better process threading capabilities.
