Early tests show Intel Ivy Bridge-E core i7-4960X is 10% faster than Sandy Bridge-E core i7-3970X

Early test by “Toppc” with Coolaler.com with early access to an Intel Ivy Bridge-E sample processor, clocked to the same specifications to the Intel core i7-4960X, has brought the world these test and showing that the Ivy Bridge-E processors could be about 10% faster than the Sandy Bridge-E equivalent core i7-3970X. Both chips will use the socket LGA 2011 and will work with Intel z79 express chipset.

Test ran on the processors were Cinebench 11.5, SuperPi, CPU Mark, 3DMark Vantage, 3DMark 06, and WPrime. Both the 3DMark tests shown are the CPU tests. Also the motherboard used was a MSI X79A-GD45 Plus (MS-7760).

The Ivy Bridge-E chip outperformed its predecessor by roughly 5-10 percent across the board. In Cinebench, the i7-4960X scored 10.94 points in comparison to the i7-3970X’s 10.16. SuperPi 32M was crunched by the i7-4960X in 9m 22.6s compared to the 9m 55.4s of the i7-3970X. CPU Mark scores between the two are 561 vs. 533 respectively. 3DMark Vantage CPU score being 38,644 points vs. 35,804, respectively. 3DMark 06 scores 8,586 points vs. 8,099 points, respectively. In WPrime, the i7-4960X crunched 32M in 4.601s, compared to its predecessor’s 5.01s. Number crunching courtesy of TechPowerUp.
