We used the ‘CPU’ test built into Cinebench R15 .
WinRAR’s built in benchmark and hardware test can help us outline the performance differentials between each motherboard. We record the amount of data processed after a 30-second run.
We measured the average frame rate achieved for a task of converting a 4.36GB 720P H.264 movie (in the MKV container) to one in the MP4 container.
ASRock's X99 flagship continues to score well in our set of CPU-related tests. WinRAR performance is joint-best, along with the X99 OC Formula.
Handbrake sits the Extreme11 in second place, behind Asus' X99 Deluxe. Cinebench's result is only bested by MSI's X99S Gaming 7 and its higher processor clock.
