Cinebench R15 (Single-Core)

Cinebench R15 is Maxon’s actual benchmark for older processors versions that test the processor’s performance without hyperthreading in single-core mode.

Cinebench R15 (Multi-Core)

Cinebench R15 benchmark reflects the efficiency of your processor operation in assessment mode. It works on Cinema 4 Suite software complex of the earlier version. Hyperthreading is not included.

iGPU - FP32 Performance (Single-precision GFLOPS)

A benchmark is designed to determine graphics cards’ performance and speed, built into their central processor. It works in iGPU mode, FP32 Performance. The higher the rate is, the better it is.

Geekbench 3, 64bit (Single-Core)

To define how efficient and powerful a processor is among several models or in comparison with another, we recommend paying attention to Geekbench 3 benchmark, which tests the single-core processor performance.

Geekbench 3, 64bit (Multi-Core)

To reveal the whole potential of the equipment, the Geekbench 3 benchmark uses all cores for 64bit models in a specialised software complex that imitates modelling various 3D scenarios. The higher estimation is, the better the performance is.

Cinebench R11.5, 64bit (Single-Core)

Cinebench R11.5 is an outdated version of the benchmark for processors of earlier generations. To find out the potential or compare it with a modern processor model, it is enough to check the performance estimate. The higher it is, the better it is. Hyperthreading is not included.

Cinebench R11.5, 64bit (Multi-Core)

Cinebench R11.5 benchmark is designed for testing early-generation processors. The overall final performance is based on 3D scene simulations in Cinema 4 Suite. It engages all processor cores.

Cinebench R11.5, 64bit (iGPU, OpenGL)

A classic benchmark is designed for testing the built-in graphics processor that works in the OpenGL standard.

Estimated results for PassMark CPU Mark

The authoritative benchmark PassMark shows how efficient the processor is in the overall performance rating. It takes into account the operation mode of all cores and supports hyperthreading. The benchmark is based on various scenarios for performing calculations, 2D and 3D modelling.
