Intel Core i7 4960X EE CPU / Asus X79-Deluxe Motherboard Review

Super Pi is used by a huge audience, particularly to check stability when overclocking processors. If a system is able to calculate PI to the 2 millionth place after the decimal without mistake, it is considered to be stable in regards to RAM and CPU. Super Pi is a single-threaded benchmark.

We used Super Pi’s ’32M’ benchmark setting.

Super Pi outlines the increased performance of Intel’s Haswell architecture. Despite its additional L3 cache and 100MHz speed boost, the 4960X’s Super Pi performance trails that of the 4770K’s by almost 2.5%. The IVB-E part does manage to outperform the slower SB-E chip by over 7%, however.

The FX-8350 is omitted from the Super Pi test as AMD’s parts are known to have an unfair disadvantage performing with Super Pi’s x87 code.
