Performance - 3DMark Time Spy CPU
3DMark Time Spy CPU score
3DMark focuses on the two areas most critical to gaming performance: the CPU and the GPU. With the emergence of multi-package and multi-core configurations on both the CPU and GPU side, the performance scale of these areas has widened, and the visual and game-play effects made possible by these configurations are accordingly wide-ranging.
- The default Time Spy CPU test does not scale beyond processors with 10 or more threads.
This makes covering the entire spectrum of 3D gaming a difficult task. It's multi-core and multi-threading aware. The standard Time Spy test is thread limited to 10 CPU cores. If a processor has faster turbo bins on these 10 cores, that's where it'll shine. So in this respect the processor is still doing remarkably well.
