SiSoft Sandra benchmark
We first test the SiSoft Sandra benchmark for both standard and overclocked configurations. The system runs at default clock and overclock state at 46×100.
As the memory benchmark is largely dependent on the memory module and clock speed which runs at 100MHz, there isn’t much of a difference in the results. Compared to a Core i7-4770 processor, the memory benchmarks is higher at 27.57MB/s versus 24.73MB/s on the ASUS Z87-A.
In terms of Arithmetic performance, the Core i7-4770K gives a score of 109 and 134.3 respectively. The overclocked processor boosted the performance by 23%.
As for multimedia processing, it scores 400Mpixel/s while at overclocked speed it scored 417.45, giving it a 4.3% boost.
As for media transcode, it runs at 5.08 vs 5.16 in overclocked state.
