Agisoft Photoscan – 2D to 3D Image Manipulation: link

Agisoft Photoscan creates 3D models from 2D images, a process which is very computationally expensive. The algorithm is split into four distinct phases, and different phases of the model reconstruction require either fast memory, fast IPC, more cores, or even OpenCL compute devices to hand. Agisoft supplied us with a special version of the software to script the process, where we take 50 images of a stately home and convert it into a medium quality model. This benchmark typically takes around 15-20 minutes on a high end PC on the CPU alone, with GPUs reducing the time.

Cinebench R15

Cinebench is a benchmark based around Cinema 4D, and is fairly well known among enthusiasts for stressing the CPU for a provided workload. Results are given as a score, where higher is better.

HandBrake v0.9.9: link

For HandBrake, we take two videos (a 2h20 640x266 DVD rip and a 10min double UHD 3840x4320 animation short) and convert them to x264 format in an MP4 container.  Results are given in terms of the frames per second processed, and HandBrake uses as many threads as possible.

Hybrid x265

Hybrid is a new benchmark, where we take a 4K 1500 frame video and convert it into an x265 format without audio. Results are given in frames per second.

    "the release of a Kaveri Refresh line of APUs is not going to set the world alight in a miasma of queues outside brick and mortar stores or bundles of pre-orders"

    That is one of the weirdest sentences I have ever read in a tech article. WTF does this even *mean*???

    ~"People wont be lining up around the world to buy them when they are released"

    Set the world alight - suggests attracting lots of attention to something
    Miasma of queues - oppressive lines

    "Miasma" implies formless emanations, like multiple lines snaking together to/from a dynamic mass (crowd). Reply

    Yeah, with the existing Kaveri, one can already overclock past the rated speed of this Godavari chip. GPU set to 950Mhz is wicked. Thats 10% over this chip, still with 512 cores. Reply

    Well, if that remains consistent, then Godavari should be able to overclock the GPU to 1142MHz.
    Even more wicked...

    Basically, the response to this release won't be like the response to the release of a new iPhone. Reply

    Come for the reviews, stay for the odd phrasing. Reply

    If the Kraken and Sunspider test results are correct, they are nonsense... The extra 100 megahertz makes the 7870K 15% slower on Sunspider compared to the 7850K, while it is an equal percent FASTER on Kraken.

    Either the test is broken or something very weird is going on - really, this makes no sense. Unless, of course, the variety in the tests is easily +/- 35% but in that case - why even bother running it?
