Intel Core i7 970 CPU Review

Cinebench R11.5 is the newest revision of the popular benchmark from Maxon. The test scenario uses all of your system’s processing power to render a photorealistic 3D scene (from the viral “No Keyframes” animation by AixSponza). This scene makes use of various different algorithms to stress all available processor cores.

In fact, CINEBENCH can measure systems with up to 64 processor threads. The test scene contains approximately 2,000 objects containing more than 300,000 total polygons and uses sharp and blurred reflections, area lights and shadows, procedural shaders, antialiasing, and much more. The result is given in points (pts). The higher the number, the faster your processor.

The Intel 970 achieves a whopping score of 8.78 at default speeds, however when overclocked it manages 10.73 which is an incredible result. The 980X at higher clocks is obviously faster, hitting 11.61 at 4.48ghz. The 1055T is has to be said puts in a great showing, considering the massive price differences.
