Page 10 - Benchmark: SuperPI 1M, Cinebench R11.5
Super PI is a computer program that calculates pi to a specified number of digits after the decimal point - up to a maximum of 32 million. It uses Gauss-Legendre algorithm and is a Windows port of the program used by Yasumasa Kanada in 1995 to compute Pi to 2^32 digits.
Super Pi is used by many overclockers to test the performance and stability of their computers. In the overclocking community, the standard program provides a benchmark for enthusiasts to compare "world record" pi calculation times and demonstrate their overclocking abilities. The program can also be used to test the stability of a certain overclock speed. If a computer is able to calculate PI to the 32 millionth place after the decimal without mistake, it is considered to be moderately stable in terms of RAM and CPU. However, longer tests with other CPU/RAM intensive calculation programs will run for hours instead of minutes and may better stress system stability. While Super Pi is not the fastest program for calculating Pi, it remains very popular in the hardware and overclocking communities.

They are all within a couple hundredth of a second with each other. I really have nothing much to say here, so, ummmmm, I'll just fill up some space with some Rebecca Black lyrics.
It's Friday, Friday
Gotta get down on Friday
Everybody's lookin' forward to the weekend, weekend
Gettin' down on Friday
Everybody’s lookin' forward to the weekend
Partyin', partyin' (Yeah)
Partyin', partyin' (Yeah)
Fun, fun, fun, fun
Lookin' forward to the weekend
Random fact of the day: By the time she finishes singing all those lines, a standard Intel Core i5-2500K will finish calculating to one million digits of Pi with more than 14 seconds to spare. The other way of putting is, by the time a Core i5-2500K finishes calculating to one million digits of Pi, Rebecca Black would not have even finished half her chorus in 'Friday'. For data visualization purposes, here is an updated benchmark graph, where "TTRBSFC" stands for "Time it Takes for Rebbeca Black to Sing Friday's Chorus".
About Cinebench R11.5
CINEBENCH is a real-world cross platform test suite that evaluates your computer's performance capabilities. CINEBENCH is based on MAXON's award-winning animation software CINEMA 4D, which is used extensively by studios and production houses worldwide for 3D content creation. MAXON software has been used in blockbuster movies such as Spider-Man, Star Wars, The Chronicles of Narnia and many more.
CINEBENCH is the perfect tool to compare CPU and graphics performance across various systems and platforms (Windows and Mac OS X).

Jokes aside, we made finally it to our final set of results -- featuring yet another three-way statistical tie between the ASUS P8P67 WS Revolution, ASUS P8P67 PRO, and Gigabyte GA-P67A-UD5. Actually, both ASUS boards did outperform the lone Gigabyte contestant in the OpenGL rendering benchmark, but again it is very minor in magnitude, ending in numbers just outside of our standard margin of error.
