Page 9 - Benchmark: 3DMark

About 3DMark

3DMark includes everything you need to benchmark your PC and mobile devices in one app. Whether you're gaming on a PC, a tablet or a smartphone, 3DMark includes benchmarks designed specifically for your hardware.

The 3DMark CPU Profile introduces a new approach to CPU benchmarking. Instead of producing a single number, the 3DMark CPU Profile shows you how CPU performance scales with the number of cores and threads used. The CPU Profile has six tests that use 1, 2, 4, 8, 16 or the maximum number of available threads. These tests help you benchmark and compare CPU performance for gaming, overclocking, and other scenarios.

Like UL's PCMark 10 benchmarking suite, 3DMark is yet another favorite among enthusiasts and reviewers alike. In fact, it has been part of the APH Networks' battery of standard benchmarks since the very beginning. The latest iteration of 3DMark has a CPU test available, which shows how a multi-core CPU scales with the number of cores and threads used. Once again, the results were what you might expect, although it was interesting to see a difference between the max threads and the 16 threads result, especially since the Intel Core i5-12600K has a total of sixteen threads. It is possible the difference is that since there are 12 threads from the performant cores and 4 threads are from the efficiency cores, relying on the efficiency cores that run at a lower frequency may have caused a drop in performance.
