  • Benchmark score relativity of CPUs and Video Cards

    Are the benchmark score numbers relative? As in, for example, 5960x score of 15979 and gtx 980 ti score of 11573, does this mean that 980 ti will waste(botleneck) 5960x's CPU power? If anyone knows for sure, please post a reply and let me know and thanks in advance...

    The overall results are relative results. Meaning that the benchmark number isn't all that useful unless you know results from other machines / other CPUs / other video cards.

    But the individual test results often have some meaning without having to compare them to other results.

    For example RAM latency in nanosecord, or disk transfer speeds in MB/sec.

    As for bottle necking it depends a lot of what applications or specific games you are running. Also what resolutions you are running at.

        Caleb3007, I think the answer was covered in your other post.
        The Intel machine scored higher simply because it was a faster machine, in some circumstances.
