SiSoft SANDRA & Cinebench
For the next set of tests, we ran the Erazer x510 through SiSoft SANDRA and Cinebench. The SiSoft SANDRA tests offer a look at core and subsystem performance, as well as providing additional utilities and benchmarks. The tests evaluate a given rig’s memory, processor, graphics, and storage performance.
With the SiSoft SANDRA benchmarks, we tested the Erazer x510 using the CPU Arithmetic, Multimedia, and Physical Disk benchmarks. SANDRA is frequently updated so make sure your version is the latest if you'd to compare your scores to ours.
The 111.58 Arithmetic score was decent. While it beats out the i5-4590 of the Vanquish II, it’s still a bit behind other gaming rigs with the same CPU. The Multimedia test told a similar story, at 245.36. It surpasses the Vanquish II by a fair margin but won’t be challenging more expensive machines like the CyberpOwer Thunder ZEUS 2500 SE.
The memory benchmarks were strong for the x510, with a relatively high 19.54GB/s. On the other hand, the standard SATA HDD configuration limited the Physical Disks test to a meager score of 161.17. It may be wise to swap out the high-capacity HDD for a faster SSD if you’re looking to maximized performance.
Based on the Maxon Cinema 4D software suite, Cinebench uses a 3D scene and polygon-texture manipulation to test CPU and GPU performance. We used the Main Processor Performance (CPU) test, which builds a still scene with a total polygon count above 300,000. The benchmark is run twice: once with only one core running, then with all cores. Cinebench displays its results in points.
The multi-threaded score was an excellent 8.65, while the single-thread test earned a score of 1.84. These are great marks for a rig that isn’t on the expensive side.
