ADIA64 Memory Read - 21616 MB/s
Sandra Memory Bandwidth - 52918 MB/s
MaXXMEM Memory-Copy - 18074 MB/s
As for the bandwidth, among the various software I have used, SiSoftware Sandra and CrystalMark could reach the four-channel bandwidth.
The obtained bandwidth (MB/s) is nearly twice that of the LGA 1155, which is really a breakthrough for X79 in terms of DDR3 performance.
The TPower X79 could also reach a stable DDR3 2400 level, resulting in a good performance for the DDR3 overclocking range.
Power consumption test
No software running on the desktop and with the C1E power-saving technology enabled – 96W
No software running on the desktop and with the C1E power-saving technology disabled –165W
Running LinX and the CPU at full speed – 351W
Regarding the power consumption test, it turns out that there is not much difference between X79 and other brands.
It can perform well during system standby and overclocking to 4.75G. If you want to save power, you must enable the C1E function.
The power consumption at full speed is quite high, which is also caused by the 6C12T overclocking to high frequency.
Temperature performance (Ambient temperature is about 21 Celsius)
System standby - 25~37
Running LinX and the CPU at full speed –58~64
Above is the temperature performance after 3960X overclocking.
The heat sink used is the CORSAIR Hydro Series H80 all-in-one water cooling device.
The temperature maintenance is quite good during system standby, and it is lower than the i7-2600K when at full speed.
The metal cover of the water cooling device is not hot, and the temperature of the LGA 2011 CPU might be lower than the advanced LGA 1155 CPU.
The Sandy Bridge-E CPU may be larger in size, hence the contact area for the heat sink is also larger and the heat conduction is much faster.
msi N560GTX-Ti Twin Frozr II
3DMark Vantage CPU SCORE => 92320
FINAL FANTASY XIV
1920 X 1080 => 4723
StreetFighter IV Benchmark
1920 X 1080 with the best special effects enabled => 158.13 FPS
According to my usage experience, the 3D performance of the CPU mainly depends on the processing performance of the CPU structure.
The 3D performance of the Sandy Bridge-E structure is quite satisfactory.
However, it will achieve better performance on the 3D software supporting multiple cores.
For example, the CPU SCORE of 3DMark Vantage is higher than 90,000, which is the best among the desktop applications.
