With these being real world benchmarks they are considerably different than what we see with the other synthetic benchmarks. These benchmarks aren’t specific to any one part of the CPU giving us results for how the CPU’s features work together as a whole. These are timed test meaning the results are all in seconds. The lower the number the better the score. It’s obvious what programs don’t scale as well when comparing the 4 core i5 to the 4 core i7 with Hyperthreading. Some of the tests show little or no improvement between the two but rendering for example shows that Hyperthreading coming in handy.
