CINEBENCH 15 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.
In Cinebench, the FX-8320’s extra cores help push it into a very slender lead over the i5-6500 of the UKGC Styx system. However, even the mobile i7-6700HQ from the Dell Inspiron 15 7559 scores nearly 100 points more.
