CPU Performance Tests

These tests are designed to highlight the different performance aspects of the processors, for different workloads and features. Some are single threaded, others multi-threaded. Some benefit more from on-die cache, other from pure CPU clock frequency.

7-Zip 9.20 x64

Time to compress 24 4000x3000 .jpg files to a single archive, on the SSD. 7Zip file format used with 4 threads and maximum compression level. Results in time elapsed (seconds), and faster (lower) times are better.

WinRAR 4.0 x64

Time to compress 24 4000x3000 .jpg files to a single archive, on the SSD. RAR file format used with 4 threads and maximum compression level. Results in time elapsed (seconds), and faster (lower) times are better.

Advanced Encryption Standard

SiSoft Sandra - Cyprographic CPU Performance Test

SiSoft Sandra 2011 (build 1750) results of Cryptographic module CPU performance benchmark. Higher results are better

WPrime

A multi-threaded benchmark test using recursive square root calculations to 1M and 1024M digits. Times to complete are recorded. Lower times are better.

FluidMark

PhysX CPU Benchmark of 6 emitters, 60k particles, multi-core forced CPU PhysX mode at 1920x1080 resolution with no postFX, no AA. Higher results are better.

Cyberlink MediaEspresso 6.5
