Onboard Performance

Okay so let me first say that nothing on the onboard side has changed from the 8700K, more importantly, this isn’t really a CPU that most people would be buying to use onboard video. But it is nice to know you have the option, assuming your motherboard supports it. So let's take a quick look at our onboard video test suite.

So the Cinebench R15 OpenGL test runs through a video rendering. Our 8086K came in noticeably lower than the 8700K here but no surprises here with the Raven Ridge Ryzen CPUs up at the top of the charts with the now dated but still fast graphics of the 5775C as well.

obgraph1Next, I fired up 3DMark to check out some synthetic gaming performance. To do this I ran the Fire Strike benchmark as well as the DX12 focused Time Spy. In both the 8700K was a little head with the Raven Ridge CPUs from AMD way out in front.



On a similar note, I ran Unigine based Valley Benchmark and the newer Superposition test. It's important to point out that the now dated Valley benchmark struggled on all of the CPUs with at best 12.8 FPS but the 8086K was again just below the 8700K and well below the 2400G and 2200G. Superposition was similar, only with point ratings, not FPS averages. That said doing those tests at 1080p on medium and 720 low were MUCH smoother.



Then from there, I did real in game benchmarks to get a look at overall performance in game. With games like TF2 that are older, I was happy to see that the game was more than playable at 44 FPS. Of course, that was nearly half of the Raven Ridge results.  Newer games like Wildlands didn’t go as well, even at the low setting 12 FPS isn’t anything I would want to try to play with. That said there were multiple games with at or over 30 FPS that would be more than playable. That said I would never recommend the 8086K for onboard performance.
