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.
We used the ‘CPU’ test built into Cinebench R15. There isn’t much difference between the four systems, although the MSI GT72 2QE Dominator Pro G’s Broadwell processor has the slight edge. The other three systems are exhibiting very similar raw rendering grunt.
