A CPU summary finally??? CPU Holomark scores
Now with GPUs
Rhino 6, all done on 64bit version.
Okay so it has been asked for a while, so I thought hey why not do it.
There is a lot of people than want to know what difference CPUs have over each other.
This is a list of CPU scores for Holomark 2.60 (incomplete) and 2.61.
What I would ask is for people to keep posting their Holomark scores in the thread below.
Shout out to @Holo for this.
[Edit] I figured people would be more interested in the GPUs rather than the individual timings for each CPU tests, so I’ve swapped these.
Also it’s ordered by CPU score.
Red indicates re-run tests on the same machine.
Q - Identical CPUs have drastically different scores?
A - Different GPUs causing bottle necks, overclocked cores or something else, or first time run on a new machine; I can’t pinpoint each case.
Q - Identical systems improve scores on second test?
A - Is it the first time you’ve run this test on your machine? I’ve also noticed some differences by running my systems though CPU+GPU stress tests then launching Holomark and getting similar results to having run Holomark twice. Warming up the system seems to help performance, don’t just take a score from a system you’ve literally just turned on.
Q - My CPU has a high turbo/boost than another CPU, but scores lower?
A - Turbo clocking is not sustained, hence why overclocking is increasing the base clock of a CPU. Base clocks and cores are important here not turbo.
And here is V2.6 just for reference and so you can see that there isn’t much difference between AA levels.
I will try and update my tables as frequently as possible.
[Edit] Although people used to say Rhino was primarily single core utilization. Any CPU with good (not necessarily high) core count + high base clock speeds, which is fairly recent, will perform fine.
Just don’t skimp on your other components.
