PCMark 10 and 3DMark
PCMark 10 is a benchmarking software that uses real-world applications to measure the computer performance. We ran the “Extended” test, which included applications opening, web browsing, writing, gaming, photo editing, video chat, video conversion, and rendering. Let’s see the results.
On the 3DMark 10 Extended benchmark, the Core i9-7900X was 4% faster than the Core i7-6950X.
3DMark is a program with a set of several 3D benchmarks. Time Spy runs a DirecX12 simulation; Fire Strike runs a “heavy” DirectX 11 simulation, and Sky Diver also measures DirectX 11 performance, but is aimed on average computers.
On Time Spy, the Core i9-7900X was 4% faster than the Core i7-6950X.
On the Fire Strike benchmark, the Core i9-7900X performed similarly to the Core i7-6950X.
On the Sky Diver benchmark, the Core i9-7900X was 4% faster than the Core i7-6950X.
