CINEBENCH R11.5 64 Bit is a real-world cross platform test suite that evaluates your computer’s performance capabilities. CINEBENCH is based on MAXON’s award-winning animation software CINEMA 4D, which is used extensively by studios and production houses worldwide for 3D content creation. MAXON software has been used in blockbuster movies such as Spider-Man, Star Wars, The Chronicles of Narnia and many more.
When all four cores are loaded, the Sapphire board by default drops the core speed to 3,700mhz. The Asus Z77 boards we reviewed in the last week run at 3,900mhz, even with all four cores loaded @ 100%. This explains the slightly lower scores when running at ‘out of the box’ speeds via this Sapphire board. It would be easy enough to adjust the ratio in the bios- all to 39.
This is a clever move from ASUS really. When overclocked to 4.6ghz, the scores are identical to the Asus Z77 products.Sapphire Pure Platinum Z77K Motherboard Review,
