Back in 2013, OnePlus jumped into the smartphone scene with a bang, introducing their OnePlus One smartphone, which quickly distinguished itself by offering flagship class smartphone features at a pricepoint of just $299. Thanks to massive community support, OnePlus was able to quickly build a name for itself as the enthusiast class smartphone with the best value possible.
Fast forward to June 2017 and OnePlus has continued this tradition of delivering flagship class smartphones at very reasonable prices. The OnePlus 5 featured all the latest and greatest hardware including a 5.5-inch AMOLED display, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor, up to 8GB of RAM, [...]

According to the leaked benchmark, the Ryzen 5 2500U scores 3,561 single core and 9,421 in multi-core, beating AMD’s current flagship APU, the A12-9800B, by 54% in single-core [...]
Geekbench scores of to Intel’s upcoming 6-core Coffee Lake family (i7-8700K, i7-8700, i5-8400) has recently been revealed in the Geekbench database.
Unlike the previous Geekbench leak, which was clearly a very early sample with not even a concrete processor name attached, the new leak now provides a clear image of the new processors complete with the processor names, codenames, etc.Manufacturer Intel AMD Model i7-8700K i7-8700 i5-8400 i7-7700K R7 1700X R7 1700 Single-Core Score 5,541 5,539 4,991 5,733 4,071 3,891 Multi-Core Score 23,996 22,249 19,799 18,800 20,988 19,883 Core Count 6 Cores / 12 Threads 6 Cores / [...]
If you recently purchased or built a new PC, or upgraded an older PC, the most important thing to do aside from stress testing is to benchmark. Whereas stress testing helps ensure the PC is completely stable not only during idle but also during heavy load, benchmarking will help ensure that the PC is operating at the appropriate level of performance for the components installed. As simple issues such as an outdated driver or an improperly configured component may significantly degrade performance, benchmark testing will allow you to quickly catch any issues and to fix them immediately so you can take full advantage of the new hardware that you’ve spent your hard earned [...]
Details of Intel’s upcoming 8th Generation Core Processors, Coffee Lake, are pouring out as last month we first got a glimpse of some leaked Geekbench benchmark scores and now we have a possible full CPU-Z information page confirming clock speeds, cache sizes, socket, and TDP.
Looking at the information leaked in the CPU-Z screenshot, we can see that we’ve got an unnamed 14nm Intel Core Engineering Sample CPU featuring 6-cores/12-threads, a base clock of 3.5GHz and possibly a maximum turbo clock of 4.3GHz based on the 8-43 multiplier. It will also support the Intel Socket LGA 1151 socket, have a 12MB L3 cache, and feature a TDP of 80W.
This latest [...]
So you just purchased a new PC at Best Buy and the salesman assured you that it’s without a doubt the top of the line, fastest, best of the best PC money could buy. Naturally you buy it because, let’s be honest, who doesn’t want a top of the line best of the best PC? Now that you’ve taken the system home however, how do you actually know if it’s top of the line or not? The answer? Benchmarks.
While there are benchmarks that cover practically every since PC component along with the system as a whole, today we’ll be showing you the best CPU benchmarks we use here at Custom PC Review to specifically evaluate CPU [...]
New benchmarks of the upcoming AMD Ryzen Threadripper 1950X has surfaced. The Threadripper 1950X will be AMD’s new flagship chip for consumers, and will come appropriately with 16 cores/32 threads, 40MB of onboard cache, and a whopping 64 PCIe lanes.
In a Geekbench run, the Threadripper 1950X is shown to score 4074 points in the single-core test and 26,768 in the multi-core test. This is a bit higher than the last time its performance were leaked, so it does seem like optimizations were made.
Unfortunately, the new score still doesn’t match up against Intel’s new Core i9-7900X 10-core CPU. The Intel Core i9-7900X scores 5,390 in the [...]
After early performance numbers were spotted on Intel’s upcoming 6-Core Coffee Lake CPUs on the SiSoft Sandra benchmark database, new Coffee Lake benchmarks are now appearing in the GeekBench database.
While GeekBench results page shows the CPU as Kaby Lake, the specs show a 3.19GHz, 6-core/12-thread processor with 1.5MB of L2 and 12MB of L3. This is consistent with the specs from the previously leaked SiSoft Sandra benchmarks.
According to the benchmark page, the CPU scored 4619 single core score and 20828 multi-core score.
As expected, this puts single core performance higher than AMD Ryzen and multi-core score somewhere in line [...]
Looks like benchmark cheating we’ve seen in the past isn’t over just yet. XDA has just reported that both OnePlus and Meizu have been rigging its software for favorable performance results in benchmarks.
In the case of OnePlus, the Snapdragon 821 SoC in the OnePlus 3T would stay way above the idle clock speeds when engaged in certain apps. Instead of dropping down to 0.31GHz for both the performance and power CPU clusters, the performance clusters would stay consistently at 1.29 GHz while the power clusters sat at 0.98GHz.
XDA suspected that the software was ramping up the clock speed based on the name of the software package by loosening the thermal [...]
As the new base 13″ MacBook Pro without the touch bar has been shipping for several days, benchmarks of the new system has been popping up online and at least when it comes to CPU performance, it looks like it’s not much of an upgrade.
Comparing benchmarks of the new base 13″ MacBook Pro against older 13″ MacBook Pros, we can see that the new base 13″ MacBook Pro scores just 6970 points in GeekBench 4 compared to the early 2015 13″ MacBook Pro which scored between 6497 and 6983 points. As such, CPU performance on the new 13″ MacBook Pro will unfortunately be about the same as last year’s model.
