The goal of /r/hardware is a place for quality hardware news, reviews, and intelligent discussion. We'd advise that our community take ANY site that claims to benchmark and rank components with a healthy pinch of salt and compare information across a range of sources before making any purchasing decisions. People keep recommending Anandtech and it really sucks. There are user reviews for common parts. Anandtech and GamersNexus do a great job. Obviously synthetics are synthetics and always to be taken in context but they should fill any role UB would wouldn't they? Today on 6/12/2020, I ran the userbenchmark test using the new version and all four of my computers failed to … Many processing steps are fundamentally single threaded, or when scaled so heavily actually get slower (NUMA, lock contention, communication overhead, language overhead, context switches, cache misses, dataset not big enough to benefit from multiple cores, etc). I wish there was a good alternative to UB. Same here but I never look at scores, just spec comparison. UserBenchmark has received a significant blow today with the news that it has been banned from a major subreddit. here is a list of alternatives that were mentioned in the comments: Hardware Unboxed https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCI8iQa1hv7oV_Z8D35vVuSg Anandtech https://www.anandtech.com/bench PC-Kombo https://www.pc-kombo.com/us/benchmark Techspot https://www.techspot.com and my personal favorite pcpartpicker.com - it lets you build your own PC from a catalog of practically every piece of hardware on the market, from CPUs and Fans to Monitors and keyboards. Intel HD. What they have done (and spent lol) to have fair thermal testing for cooler reviews is insane - some 10k$ heat bench contraption. This thread will be the last thread in which discussion of UB will be allowed. This can influence the decisions of novice pc builders negatively and should be mentioned here. Press question mark to learn the rest of the keyboard shortcuts. Not everyone is aware of how biased their "benchmarks" are and how misleading their scoring is. There are comptability checks for CPU sockets, GPU, radiator and case sizes, PSU capacity and system wattage, etc. They're also extremely transparent about their testing methodology. For just straight comparisons between newly released cards, I like 3DCenter, they aggregate results from 15-20 reviewers and summarize them like this from the recent 5600XT launch. AnandTech benchmark database is great, but difficult to extract information from. UserBenchmark should be banned. The classic example is 9 mothers can't make a baby in 1 month. This is an extremely narrow range which indicates that the Intel UHD Graphics 620 (Mobile Kaby Lake R) performs superbly consistently under varying real world conditions. UserBenchmark is committed to ensuring that your privacy is protected. General consensus between r/Intel and r/hardware subreddits has reached into one conclusion, to ban UserBenchmark user from posting and commenting. UserBenchmark bans again people who criticize the benchmark or the rating on the website. UserBenchmark just got banned from Reddit /r/hardware, /r/intel and has been restricted at /r/AMD https://thinkcomputers.org/userbenc...n=userbenchmark-biased-component-rating-drama UserBenchmark adjusted its ranking system when Ryzen 3000 series CPUs was launched. Open benchmark .org has a good set of data for comparison. Having tons of processor cores is not always useful. Among the shady shit they're pulling: something along the lines of the i3 being superior to the 3900x because multithreaded performance is irrelevant. I always used it without taking a look at their "real world" stats. Multi-thread computing will be the standard in the near future and software and game developers are already starting to adapt to that. Background . This way, more people are educated than just the silenced OP. UserBenchmark's has users write product conclusions and their front page shows user ranked stuff first, meaning people can vote for a piece of hardware and make it seem better than another even thought it isn't. Incompetent "moar core" marketers would sell ice to Elsa. UserBenchmark just got banned on r/hardware and should also be banned here. Or if you're split between two different components. Best PC Benchmark Software for Windows. The 3700X is a $320 USD 8-core, 16-thread mid-range Ryzen 3000 series CPU. The reason? - Reports are generated and presented on userbenchmark.com. In the Userbenchmark bench, an unknown eight-core Rocket Lake CPU has been compared to Intel's 10th generation Comet Lake-S processors. UserBenchmark are utter liars, having more than 4 threads available does make a big difference to typical desktop usage. I even sympathized with those changes. Nevertheless, they are tailoring the scoring methods to reduce multi-thread weights while giving an advantage to single-core performance. That changed when I saw them giving better ratings to CPUs that literally have worse benchmarks vs their competitors. Not apples to oranges. UserBenchmark is a Microsoft Windows PC benchmarking and hardware review website that has been established since 2012 in London, UK. I like the concept of userbenchmark but it really has gone downhill lately. They're just generating drama. Anandtech are the first to come to mind. It was a great way to just make sure your system was performing as per the spec sheet and not a lemon. So that single user should not believe that 4x the cores = 4x the performance, or in some cases even a performance increase at all, nor should they believe a highly multi-threaded benchmark represents most programs. They're just generating drama. New comments cannot be posted and votes cannot be cast.
