Gigabyte G1.Sniper A88X Review

CineBench R11.5

The CPU result is fairly linear as we move through the AMD CPU range, but the big kick comes in the switch on the Sniper from the 6700 to the 6800. As well as a higher clock speed we see a big leap in the frames rendered, and the CPU score is now comfortably better than the Intel i3s.


A slightly mixed result in wPrime. We'd have expected the 6700 to perform better on the Sniper, especially when we take the AIDA64 and Sandra results into account. However the 6800K makes a mockery of its low price tag to give a very respectable result indeed.
