Starting with the Whetstone results we see roughly the results we'd expect. Given that the comparison processors are run at stock it's no surprise to see the i7-875K keeping up and the 655K, despite that hefty overclock, still struggling to keep up. Although allowing for the fact it has half the processing cores available it does a sterling job indeed.
The Dhrystone results give a serious surprise with the 875K taking quite a substantial lead over it's brethren. Identical processors on identical systems shouldn't give this much of a difference, but there it is. The OC 875K clearly stands atop our graphs, but as the only overclocked quad-core processor here we'd expect nothing less. Still the level of results are impressive.
The 655K, if our Sandra results are anything to go by, could be the little engine that could. The stock dual-core isn't much to write home about but overclocked it sings.
