Results: Cinebench R15, Truecrypt AES, and Euler3D

Cinebench R15

The latest version of Cinebench again leverages all of the latest technologies on modern processors to achieve the fastest results possible for rendering a scene.  It also does a nice job of leveraging multi-core architectures with a balanced workload.

Single thread results show the Intel part being miles ahead of AMD.  Furthermore, the older Richland APUs with their higher CPU clockspeed are able to surge past the 7800 at 65 watts.  Once we get into multi-thread territory, things start to even out a bit for the AMD parts.  Kaveri is more efficient at multi-threaded workloads than Richland, and a lot of that can likely be attributed to the more robust front end (dual decoders, etc.) on the Steamroller modules.  In fact, it gets closer to the Intel part than most would expect.


Truecrypt AES

So this particular software product is no longer valid or supported, but it still can show off the performance of hardware AES encryption/decryption.

The latest A10-7800 Kaveri part matches that of Haswell in hardware mode.  Perhaps more interesting is how Kaveri outperforms Haswell in software mode.  In fact, it beats up on every part in this particular test.



Euler 3D is an engineering/scientific benchmark based on a real-world application that simulates flow over an airfoil.  It certainly favors Intel based processors a bit more than AMD, but I am not entirely sure why.

Again some interesting results here.  The Richland parts consistently outperform the Kaveri parts, even with both running at 65 watts.  Intel cleans house in this particular benchmark.
