Cinebench R15 Benchmark
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.
The Cinebench test is one of my absolutely favorite tools for benchmarking processors. It cuts through and tests only the processor. In my opinion, it is definitely one of the best indicators of where a processor stands. As you can see from the results, the FX-8370E and FX-8370 can’t keep up, or even come close, to the single core, hyper-threaded score of the i5-4670. Even the 4.7GHz FX-9590 doesn’t come close. The tale is quite different when we look at the high-speed octa-core FX CPUs in the multi-core test. Both the FX-8370E and the FX-8370 have no trouble pushing past the i5-4670 here. In a market where multi-core processing is becoming the norm, the less expensive FX processors seem to have the advantage.
