CPU Performance


CINEBENCH is a real-world cross-platform test suite that evaluates your computer’s CPU performance. Cinebench R15 is a totally free utility and is available for download here.

Straight into the first test and the ASRock EX7+ and i7-6700K combo puts up a good fight, almost 15% more performance than the 4770K and only 1% behind the 5820K once overclocked.


wPrime is a leading multithreaded benchmark for x86 processors that tests your processor performance by calculating square roots with a recursive call of Newton’s method for estimating functions. wPrime is a free utility that is available for download here.

Again, the 6700K securely placing itself just behind the 5820K.
