CPU Turbo Mode – Cinebench R11.5 64-bit

Cinebench has been a personal favourite test of ours for a long time now; it uses methodology comparable to a standard rendering task.

When we then enable turbo mode this continues to be the case and once again demonstrates the potential of the i7 CPU. We should note though that the XPS 15z also allows for configuration with an i7 model, though not quite up to the 2820QM model offered on the M14x.
