Benchmark Suite

CPU
HEXUS PiFast Our number-crunching benchmark tests the single-thread power of the CPU.
Cinebench Release 20 This popular cross-platform benchmark examines both single- and multi-core performance.
Blender 2.82 We render the Classroom scene in this popular open-source creation suite.
Memory and Storage
AIDA64 Benchmark that accurately depicts memory bandwidth and latency.
System
PCMark 10 A set of tests covering a wide variety of tasks performed in the modern workplace.
3DMark We run Time Spy, a QHD DirectX 12 test of both GPU performance and stability.
Gaming
Civilization VI: Gathering Storm Tested in DX11, with 4x MSAA and Ultra quality settings.
Far Cry New Dawn Tested in DX11, with TAA, Ultra quality settings and HD textured enabled.
Final Fantasy XIV: Shadowbringers Tested in DX11, with FXAA and Maximum quality settings.
Shadow of the Tomb Raider Tested in DX12, with TAA and Highest quality settings.
Vitals
CPU Temperature Core temperature recorded when idle and when rendering via Blender.
Power Consumption System-wide mains power draw recorded when idle and when playing Shadow of the Tomb Raider.

Notes

A lengthy list of processors. We ran the chip by forcing the board to not exceed 125W for extended periods, which is the way that many will use this mid-range offering. Doing so has ramifications on performance, as explicit TDP limits overall frequency, so it may run a bit slower than in unrestrained mode. That we leave to overclocking.
