Super PI

Super PI is a computer program that calculates pi to a specified number of digits after the decimal point—up to a maximum of 32 million. It uses Gauss–Legendre algorithm and is a Windows port of the program used by Yasumasa Kanada in 1995 to compute pi to 232 digits.

Like Cinebench, SuperPI is not a benchmark that favours AMD chips. With a time of just over half hour to complete a 32M run, the Intel chips may beat it hands down, but this time is only around 50% longer compared to the FX-9590 flagship Piledriver CPU that I tested only the other day.
