The 3DMark CPU Profile introduces a new approach to CPU benchmarking. Instead of producing a single score, the 3DMark CPU Profile shows you how your CPU’s performance changes and scales with the number of cores and threads used.
|Benchmark||3DMark CPU Profile|
|Target hardware||Modern multicore processors|
|Workload||The Max-threads test measures CPU performance using all available threads|
|Workload||The 16-threads test measures CPU performance using 16 threads|
|Workload||The 8-threads test measures CPU performance using 8 threads|
|Workload||The 4-threads test measures CPU performance using 4 threads|
|Workload||The 2-threads test measures CPU performance using 2 threads|
|Workload||The 1-thread test measures CPU performance using a single thread|
The 3DMark CPU Profile has six tests that help you benchmark and compare CPU performance for a range of threading levels. Each of the six tests produces a score. Scores are comparable across tests. You can compare the 8-thread score with the 4-thread score, for example. A higher score means the CPU performed the work faster.
