Results: Cinebench R15, TrueCrypt, 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.

It is hard to beat Intel when it comes to single threaded performance.  Their Haswell and Skylake architectures are both leaps and bounds ahead of AMD when it comes to this.  Once we hit multi-threaded workloads the AMD units fare better.  They still are beating the i3-4300, but only just.  The new i3-6100 still keeps a very, very healthy lead.  The 7670K performs slower than the 7850K, while the 7860K is the slowest of the group.


So this particular software product is no longer valid or supported, but it still can show off the performance of hardware AES encryption/decryption.

In this instance AMD is very competitive with the latest Intel hardware.  One area that AMD actually pulls off the win is with the non-hardware enabled test where it is still faster than the new i3-6100.

Euler 3D

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.  My best guess is that it was developed with the Intel compiler from years ago that enabled SSE support on Intel CPUs and forced a fallback on x87 FPU for anything non-Intel.  This is just a guess though.

The Intel processors cleaned house as expected, but I was honestly surprised by HOW much faster the i3-6100 is over the already quick i3-4330.  We see much the same spread as before with the 7850K being the fastest AMD part, the 7670K coming in second, and the 7860K bringing up the rear.  The differences of performance between the 3 are pretty minimal, but consistent.
