AIDA64 is a full 64-bit benchmark and test suite utilizing MMX, 3DNow! and SSE instruction set extensions, and will scale up to 32 processor cores. An enhanced 64-bit System Stability Test module is also available to stress the whole system to its limits. For legacy processors all benchmarks and the System Stability Test are available in 32-bit versions as well. The Queen benchmark is a simple integer benchmark focuses on the branch prediction capabilities and the misprediction penalties of the CPU. The Photoworxx benchmark performs common photo and image editing tasks. The AMD APUs certainly excel in the Queen tests, but come down below the i5-4670 in Photoworxx. The next two benchmarks both go to the Intel CPU. The AES benchmark tests CPU performance using AES. The Hash benchmark measures CPU performance using SHA-1. The A10-7850K does better in the Hash tests, actually beating the previous generation A10-6800K. In the AES tests, it doesn’t quite make it. This integer benchmark measures combined CPU and memory subsystem performance through the public ZLib compression library. CPU ZLib test uses only the basic x86 instructions, and it is HyperThreading, multi-processor (SMP) and multi-core (CMP) aware. Once again, the A10-7850K can’t quite manage to keep up with the A10-6800K, let alone the i5-4670. The final benchmarks are the floating point benchmarks. Julia tests single-point precision (32-bit) and Mandel tests double-point precision (64-bit). Not only to the Intel CPUs dominate in these two tests, but the A10-7850K also loses out to the A10-6800K again. The VP8 benchmark measures video compression performance using the Google VP8 (WebM) video codec Version 1.1.0. The SinJulia benchmark measures the extended precision (also known as 80-bit) floating-point performance through the computation of a single frame of a modified “Julia” fractal. The A10-7850K dominates in the VP8 benchmark, but can’t keep up in SinJulia.
SiSoft Sandra 2014
SiSoftware Sandra is a 32- and 64-bit client/server Windows system analyzer that includes benchmarking, testing and listing modules. It tries to go beyond other utilities to show you more of what is really going on under the hood so you draw comparisons at both a high and low-level in a single product. You can get information about the CPU, GPGPU, chipset, video adapter (GPU), ports, printers, sound card, memory, network, Windows internals even .NET and Java.
CINEBENCH is a cross-platform testing suite that measures hardware performance and is the de facto standard benchmarking tool for leading companies and trade journals for conducting real-world hardware performance tests. With the new Release 15, systems with up to 256 threads can be tested. CINEBENCH is available for both Windows and OS X and is used by almost all hardware manufacturers and trade journals for comparing CPUs and graphics cards.Next, let’s look at DX-11 performance.
