Synthetic Application Performance
MaxxPI² was used to measure both single and multi-thread processor performance. The Core i5 750 fairs well in this test, just a second behind the Core i7 920 for the multi-thread test, though in relative terms that translates to a 9% performance decrease. The Core i5 750 was also slower than the Phenom II X4 965.
These results relate directly to those above. This time we are looking at the performance measured in kilobytes per second. The overclocked Intel Core i5 750 configuration at 4.13GHz achieved a throughput of 983.2k/sec, whereas the standard 2.66GHz version managed 668.1k/sec.
Using the WinRAR benchmark we see that the Intel Core i5 750 is again only slightly slower than the Intel Core i7 920. The Core i5 750 produced a multi-thread result of 3010KB/s, making it 8% slower than the Core i7 920, while it was 25% faster than the Phenom II X4 965, and 57% faster than the Core 2 Quad Q9650.
