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 R15, it is interesting that the i5-6402P actually edges the i5-6500, despite the latter having a slightly faster clock speed. Nonetheless, performance is definitely ‘middle-of-the-road.’
