Intel Core i7-7820X 8-Core Processor Review

CPU Testing Continued
Now we are going to move over to SiSoftware’s Sandra benchmarking program. Our first benchmark is the Processor Arithmetic. Higher scores are better here as well.

Moving on to Sandra’s Processor Multi-Media benchmark. Higher scores and better here as well.

The Persistence of Vision Raytracer is a high-quality, Free Software tool for creating stunning three-dimensional graphics. POV-Ray includes a standard benchmark scene. We run the multi-threaded or All CPU benchmark. The benchmark gives us the elapsed time in seconds it takes to complete the rendering of the scene. Lower times are better here.

We round out our CPU testing with CINEBENCH R15 64-Bit. This benchmark renders a photo-realistic 3D scene. All of the rendering is done by the CPU. At the end the software gives you a score. The first test is multi-thread the second is a single-threaded test.

    So you compare a $599 processor against a Ryzen 1700 without overclock and running Ram at 2133?

    Mmm, curious. I wonder what the justification for that could be?

  • Well one Tim we test processors against all other processors we have on hand, which included the Ryzen 7 1700 and other Intel parts in that price range as well. We do not have any AMD TR parts so we could not test those.

    As for the memory, that specific memory kit would not work on our Ryzen system at anything other than 2133 MHz. That is with the latest micro-code update and BIOS update for our motherboard. We troubleshooted the issue for a week but ran into the same result. We have yet to hear back from AMD on the issue.

    it is not a direct comparison, the other chips are there to give you an idea of performance across the board. I don’t think someone looking at a $599 chip would be considering a Ryzen 7 1700. We included the $999 i9-7900X in our testing as well and mentioned the ThreadRipper 1900X in the conclusion as an option around the same price.
