The OpenMP-based GraphicsMagick image program also likes Sandy-E.

The OpenMP efficiency as measured by CLOMP is not any better with the new Extreme Edition processor over the previous-generation Gulftowns.

For the CPU-based TTSIOD 3D Renderer, the Core i7 3960X at its stock speeds is around 21% faster than the Core i7 990X, over 80% faster than the Core i5 2500K, and nearly 60% faster than the AMD FX-8150 Bulldozer. Overclocking Sandy-E squeezed out another 10% in this open-source benchmark.
