Processor Graphics

Not every CPU comparison gives the complete picture as not all the models are equipped with a built-in graphic core. Therefore, in the comparison between Intel Core i7-8500Y and AMD FX-8370, one of the columns can be blank because of the absence of iGPU specifications. If the built-in core is present, we recommend paying attention to the clock speed as other figures are secondary.

Thermal Management (TDP)

Intel Core i7-8500Y and AMD FX-8370 TDP depict the whole information of a thermal pack. Here you can easily assume which CPU consumes more power and correspondingly requires a power supply of larger capacity. We recommend paying attention to a model with a low TDP as the component system needs the power reserve of not the power supply but the cooling system, as a CPU being loaded up does not always consume more power.

Cinebench R20 (Single-Core)

Cinebench R20 Benchmark is an upgraded version of Cinebench R15 Benchmark. Similarly to the preceding one, this version was developed on the Cinema 4 Suite software. The benchmark tests the performance of a single-core CPU not given the hyperthreading. Here are the updated results to learn.

Cinebench R20 (Multi-Core)

The Maxon Company has developed an accurate benchmark of CPU performance, Cinebench R20, based on the software complex Cinema 4 Suite. The scenarios of data proceeding and calculations reflect the efficiency high-performance of a CPU given all the cores and hyperthreading support.

Cinebench R15 (Single-Core)

It is the Cinebench R15 benchmark for testing CPUs upon using a single core not given hyperthreading. The real performance in testing rendering is perfectly suitable for all the CPU segments. Learn Cinebench R15’s results and the number of scores below.

Cinebench R15 (Multi-Core)

Cinebench R15 Benchmark supports all the CPU cores in testing and takes into account hyperthreading. It was developed on the brand software company Cinema 4 Suite of Maxon. The Cinebench R15 scores are presented below.

iGPU - FP32 Performance (Single-precision GFLOPS)

The testing benchmark iGPU is integrated graphics cores in the central processor. The general graphics performance to benchmark the high-speed performance of the video chip is tested. The evaluation scores are presented below. Pay attention that not every manufacturer builds in an inner graphics core. Thus, the general results of the performance do not depend on this parameter, that is considered of good advantage.

Geekbench 5, 64bit (Single-Core)

Many wonders how good the scores of Geekbench 5 in testing CPUs are. So, we are here to answer: they are accurate and impartial to brands. The higher the evaluation of Geekbench 5 in testing performance of a CPU single core is, the better. Check out the results and compare them.

Geekbench 5, 64bit (Multi-Core)
