Benchmarking Performance: CPU Office Tests

The office programs we use for benchmarking aren't specific programs per-se, but industry standard tests that hold weight with professionals. The goal of these tests is to use an array of software and techniques that a typical office user might encounter, such as video conferencing, document editing, architectural modelling, and so on and so forth.

All of our benchmark results can also be found in our benchmark engine, Bench.

Chromium Compile (v56)

Our new compilation test uses Windows 10 Pro, VS Community 2015.3 with the Win10 SDK to combile a nightly build of Chromium. We've fixed the test for a build in late March 2017, and we run a fresh full compile in our test. Compilation is the typical example given of a variable threaded workload - some of the compile and linking is linear, whereas other parts are multithreaded.

This is another case where I think our improvised testbed is playing a bigger part, and I'd like to eventually re-run this on my standard testbed. Especially as compiling heavily hits more than just the CPU.

GeekBench4: link

Due to numerous requests, GeekBench 4 is now part of our suite. GB4 is a synthetic test using algorithms often seen in high-performance workloads along with a series of memory focused tests. GB4’s biggest asset is a single-number output which its users seem to love, although it is not always easy to translate that number into real-world performance comparisons.

Like CineBench, the Core i7-8086K does will on the synthetic single threaded test.

PCMark8: link

Despite originally coming out in 2008/2009, Futuremark has maintained PCMark8 to remain relevant in 2017. On the scale of complicated tasks, PCMark focuses more on the low-to-mid range of professional workloads, making it a good indicator for what people consider 'office' work. We run the benchmark from the commandline in 'conventional' mode, meaning C++ over OpenCL, to remove the graphics card from the equation and focus purely on the CPU. PCMark8 offers Home, Work and Creative workloads, with some software tests shared and others unique to each benchmark set.

Office: PCMark8 Home (non-OpenCL)

Here the 8086K does eek out a win over the 8700K, although just barely.

    I wasnt expecting much out of the 8086k over the 8700k... but this is truely underwhelming. Only a single core turbo boost? I was expecting all the boost tiers to be higher. And same tdp....so there goes it doing anything more at stock.

    I wasnt going to buy one anyway....so i guess it doesnt matter. I completely agree that intel could have and should have done more.

    Ich frage mich, wie schnell der technologische Fortschritt voranschreitet. Der nächste Schritt ist das Streamen von einem Online-Casino, beispielsweise über https://casinoonlineschweiz24.com/software/merkur-... Es wird für alle Glücksspielenthusiasten mega aufregend sein Reply

    Do not save on this if you really need it, just start earning more. Apollo Slots is one of the leading online casinos in the South African online market. just go to the website https://casinolife.co.za/review/apollo-slots because it is safe, offers speedy payouts, has powerful and responsive support, and many more Reply

    Thank you for such a wonderful review. It is really important to understand in time that you need to save money. For example, I save money when I play using the minimum deposit: https://casinospieles.de/10-euro-einzahlung/ . This allows me to understand if this game really suits me without spending a lot of money on it. Reply
