This is a CPU benchmark test.

PC games/benchmarks list: Watch Dogs, Resident Evil 5, Crysis 3, F1 2014, Lost Planet 2, Final Fantasy XIV

* I didn't have all the rigs at my house at the same time that's why i could only use GTX 960 in i7 system (gaming is NOT a priority!). Had i used GTX 970 in all my tests i would have gone for high/1080p settings in all games to load the GPU a bit more ;)

    meu i5 perdendo pro i7 de 2008, não acredito!

    i5 4th gen, and every gen has least 10 versions the cpu, mobile to low end desktop high end premium K versions. here a my chart.1.5 gHZall the way to3.5 gHZso the chart goes ,__|__ # sit on and spin.

  • Danny B Tech

    i turned it off as soon i noticed 720p resolutions like do people really get a pc for 720p gaming.....i find benchmarking at that resolution pointless.....

  • Todd Goul

    I've been running a 920 for six years and only in the last year has it begun to show its age. It's without a doubt the best CPU investment I've ever made.

  • wooo weee

    Setting graphics to low doesn't just remove gpu bottlenecks these days, draw distance and physics go missing, the cpu has to juggle far less and so you don't get to see an accurate result of how these things would perform fully loaded.

  • Claude Stephanoi

    My PC Specs:i7-940GTX 7702.9 GHz (Recommended at 7.3 GHz)20 RAMWindows 7 Premium x64 BitsDoes my PC is very good?

  • alex karlsson

    should i switch from my i5 4460 to i7 4790k? or what should i buy that fits into 1150 socket

  • Roiked

    In crysis 3 you have a GPU bottleneck, that is why the CPU is only sitting at 58% usage, you can't compare cpu usage in games when there is a GPU bottleneck

  • Imashiro67

    which song did you used ?


    Lol so he killed everything with a gtx960, I think I should only upgrade my 4570 to 4790 or K

  • ggg ezz

    test on different vgas, dizlike

    PCI Ex2.0 vs PCI Ex3.0

  • SantaAri

    The thing is that when you start tasking the cpus the older one will fall behind.. Because it cant keep feeding as much info to the gpu.

  • Robin Beaumont

    noob question why i5 4460 use lodes less ram

  • drNovikov

    I wish there were comparisons for Space Engineers and From the Depths.

  • jouni mäenpää

    3.37 looks like 4790K keep the 100 fps best...no shit up and down?

  • Azzalack

    Shoulda ran the i5 4460 on a Z97 so it could be OC'd.

  • Dirk Meinzer

    Wieso wird der i7 4790 mit geforce 960 gemessen in den anderen 3 Geräten ist die 970 verbaut dadurch ist diese Messung zum Teil Unbrauchbar sprich Schwachsinn! Gleiche Karte in allen Testsystemen!

  • Seleniar

    Damn,Fuck gpus I need a cpu

  • Sauron Ikov

    I have the CPU on the very right :D

  • pro pro

    all you really need is 60fps

  • MadMikeAU

    Watching this, I will stick with my i7-920 for a while yet. Considering it was way over 60fps the whole time (the max most LCD monitors can display) and ran the coolest. Only in the high 40's? That's ambient temps in Sydney lately.

  • Korn1holio

    i have i7 940 and GTX 1070. Runs everything as far as I can tell :))

  • Leet Bot
