Cinebench R11.5 was able to put a 100% load across all the cores on all of the processors, which makes this a great benchmark to look at multi-core platforms.

We would think that this would translate to similar results in the SMP benchmark in Cinebench.

One thing we noticed when running Cinebench is that CPU-Z reported that the processor went up to 5240MHz a couple times.
