  • Does the results for CPU benchmark change in time ?

    Hi, How is it possible that I have looked at i7 2600k more than 6 moths ago it was 10073 and now it is 9,086 ? It was like that becouse i have written it down.

    We don't (or at least very rarely) benchmark CPUs ourselves for the CPU charts. Nearly all data in the charts comes from user submissions from our PerformanceTest software.

    The results are an average of all submissions. As such the more samples we get the more accurate the results become, whereas CPUs with only a few samples have less accurate results. You can see the number of samples for any particular CPU by mousing over the result bar.

    The drop in CPU Mark for the 2600K is probably a combination of the above and because we adjusted the algorithm for determining overclocked CPUs. See the following forum post for more information,
