Some Benchmark Numbers for Anyone Interested

Not exactly the most rigorous or broad comparison (though I’d love to expand it) but this is what I have available. Just got done benchmarking the Framework vs my old laptop and current desktop.

Framework Specs: DIY edition i7-1165g7, 16gb of ram and 500gb sn850

Desktop Specs: i7-6700k, 16gb ram, GTX 1080, and a 500gb sn750

Lenovo Yoga 15 (2016 I think): i7-6500u, 16gb ram, and a 250gb ssd (I think Lenovo OEM, there’s no label for brand on it).

Multicore: Cinebench R23 Multicore
Single Core: Cinebench R23 Single Core
Unigine Heaven: 1080p Extreme Settings
Random Read: Crystal Disk Mark Q1 Random
Random Write: Crystal Disk Mark Q1 Random

Results are the percentage difference between the two being compared with the winner listed on the right. So for example, the Framework performs 97.49% better than the Lenovo in the Multicore test. I used the classic percent difference formula (|a-b|)/((a+b)/2) * 100

Desktop vs Lenovo is kind of pointless but I figured why not. I won’t lie though, Desktop vs Framework definitely has me a bit self conscious…

Anyways, if anyone wants to do these tests and send me their numbers I’d be happy to compile a larger set of data for comparison purposes. All of the benchmarks are freely available and relatively easy to use.


Hey Collin,

my build is quite similar to yours and I only got a 3668pts on Cinebench. Are you running Windows?
Im just wondering why you have such a big difference in scores…

Thanks :slight_smile:

I tested on Windows 10, my laptop was plugged in and I was running Cinebench R23 Multicore that I installed from the Windows Store. Assuming you have the same specs as me and were running under the same conditions as me we should have similar results. If this isn’t true then perhaps Framework support could help

@RandomUser @Collin_Kilmer I disabled the Updater and now got a score of 5527. So that must have been it. Thanks :slight_smile:


jakob_wankmueller Glad you got it worked out! I didn’t have to disable the updater, so I’m not sure why you did but at least it got you the results you expected
