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.
Again, the i5-6500 falls behind the i7-6700HQ in Cinebench R15 as it lacks the extra virtual cores. However, for a locked, Core i5 processor the score of 550 is not bad at all.
