Next up are the most interesting results yet from the Core i7 5775C on Linux. Here are the Core i7 5775C numbers compared to a few dozen of our other Linux systems running within the basement server room where the automated Linux benchmarking via the Phoronix Test Suite happens and Phoromatic for

Having recently run a number of processor tests across the 50+ systems when crossed the 200k threshold, I used those results and added in the Core i7 5775C. There are some differences in their Linux configurations and such, but the data should still serve as a nice rough look at the performance of this high-end socketed Broadwell CPU. For the results about to be shown, you can look at all of the system hardware/software details and other information via this result file.

When it came to x264 encoding, the i7-5775C was slightly faster than the Core i7 4770K while coming in right behind the Core i7 3960X Extreme Edition and the other Xeon and EE CPUs coming out faster. To no surprise, the i7-5775C was faster than all of the AMD Linux setups tested.

With the single-threaded LAME MP3 encoding test, the Core i7 5775C was the second fastest with being nearly tied to the i7-4770K for this basic MP3 encoding workload.
