Benchmark Suite

CPU Benchmarks
HEXUS PiFast Our number-crunching benchmark stresses a single core by calculating Pi to 10m places
Cinebench R15 Using Cinebench's multi-CPU render, this cross-platform benchmark stresses all cores
wPrime 2.1.0 Another number-crunching benchmark that stresses all available CPU cores/threads
HandBrake 0.10.5 Free-to-use video encoder that stresses all CPU cores (64-bit)
Memory Benchmarks
AIDA64 v5.80.4084 Benchmark that analyses memory bandwidth and latency
Gaming Benchmarks (GeForce GTX 1080)
3DMark Time Spy Graphics test run using the Time Spy default test
VRMark VR test run using Orange Room test
Deus Ex: Mankind Divided 2,560x1,440, ultra settings
Hitman 2,560x1,440, ultra settings
Total War: Warhammer 2,560x1,440, ultra settings
Miscellaneous Benchmarks
Power Consumption To emulate real-world usage scenarios, we record system-wide mains power draw when idle, when encoding video via HandBrake and while playing Deus Ex: Mankind Divided

Notes

All 10 processors have been tested afresh, with each platform employing the same hard drive, cooling, graphics card, power supply and operating system. As much as we could, we ran memory at the approved speeds for each processor. All Asus motherboards were flashed with the latest BIOS prior to testing.

A big thanks to Scan Computers for providing the comparison Intel chips for benchmarking purposes.
