Upgrading from Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 to Core i7-4770K
MAXON recently released CINEBENCH Release 11.5, an advanced hardware testing suite that assesses a computer’s performance capabilities. CINEBENCH is based on the same powerful technology as MAXON’s award-winning animation software CINEMA 4D, which is used extensively by studios and production houses worldwide for 3D content creation. The new version of CINEBENCH includes the ability to more accurately test the industrys latest hardware, including systems with up to 64 processor threads, and the testing environment better reflects the expectations of todays production demands. A more streamlined interface makes testing systems and reading results incredibly straightforward. Again, higher Frames/Second and point score equal better performance.
Heres a quick look at the OpenGL test results in Cinebench:
Finally, here are the CPU test results:
Benchmark Results: As you can see, the 4770k absolutely destroyed the competition in all tests. I pretty much expected this with this test.
