Benchmark Results: Synthetics
It’s a little surprising to see minimal performance differences in 3DMark, since this benchmark has a CPU test. The differences seen in the chart below are almost as small as those of actual games!
PCMark appears to have a preference for Intel’s Hyper-Threading (HT) technology, handicapping our highest overclock slightly.
With HT disabled, the 5 GHz overclock appears to be a completely different processor in Sandra, and not in a good way.
