In these two tests which look more at CPU performance than the last page we see two scenarios. In the first we have a test (Cinebench) which makes heavy use of multiple cores on our processors and in that type of workload the i7-3960X is strongest with I7-3770K edging ahead of the 2700K and AMD well behind. When we move to a test which tends towards using less cores and focuses more on turbo enhancements we see the three Intel CPUs which all hit 3.9GHz scoring around the same with AMD quite a way behind.

There was of course no new CPU at that time with the existing socket 1150 processors working without issue in the new boards. Since then though Intel launched (along with some lower spec models) the Core i7-4790K, a model which sits at the top of their mainstream platform. Today we see how it compares to various other models when installed on Gigabytes Z97X Gaming 5 and paired with PowerColors new dual core 290X Devil 13.
