Synthetic Benchmark Testing
SiSoft Sandra 2014 SP3
The Sandra benchmarks remain a fast and easy way to determine system quality from a CPU and memory subsystem perspective. The C7X99-OCE motherboard met performance expectations as demonstrated with its performance compared to the other Intel X99-based systems. This indicates optimal implementation of the CPU and memory subsystem.
LinX is a graphical interface for CPU-based testing using the Intel Linpack benchmarks. It serves as a good indicator of proper system CPU functioning and is considered one of the most intensive CPU benchmarks currently available. LinX was run with Memory set to All and for a total of 3 runs. This test was repeated three times with the highest repeatable GFlops (Giga-Floating Point Operations Per Second) score recorded.
This CPU torture test is a proven method for identifying possible issues with the CPU to motherboard interface layer. The C7X99-OCE again shows its strength when compared with the other Intel X99 class test boards. This further demonstrates the board's solid implementation of the CPU subsystem.
Multimedia and System Benchmark Testing
Maxon Cinebench R15
Maxon’s Cinebench R15 benchmark can be used determine a system's ability to render 3D content based on their Cinema 4D animation software. The CPU benchmark test was run three times, with the highest reproducible Cinebench points score recorded.
The C7X99-OCE closes out the benchmark tests in a competitive light, again meeting performance expectations defined by the other Intel X99-based boards.
