OCCT enters benchmarking – users can now compare their results

OCCT, a popular stress testing tool for enthusiasts now offers a benchmarking tool.

The latest version of OCCT 9 now has a new tab that offers a very easy-to-use and relatively short benchmark for processors and memory. The CPU benchmark provides four metrics, including single-thread and multi-thread results for SSE and AVX instruction respectively. According to the author, the key point of the new benchmarking feature is reporting on all system information and hardware sensor data which is uploaded to the results page.

More importantly, the results which are collected by the software can be easily verified by other users, a feature that can be useful to determine the overclocking potential of the same processor.

The benchmark offers CPU and Memory leaderboards, currently occupied mainly by AMD Ryzen Threadripper 3960X processor or systems equipped with Intel Core i9-10900KF CPUs.

The information that is being collected is very extensive thanks to HWiNFO API that is being used by the software. Each metric such as frequencies for individual cores, infinity fabric or temperatures of the package, cores, and even GPU memory junction can be verified in endless graphs.

The benchmarking tool is still being polished and features are still being added. The author is already working on version 10 of the OCCT software that will extend on stability testing features. You can now grab a free copy of OCCT Version 9 from the link below.

OCCT 9.0.0 changelog:

  • Added Benchmarks for CPU and Memory to OCCT !
  • Added a graph bar to the benchmarks for comparison purposes
  • Added meaningful tooltips to the graph’s bars so you can know quickly what’s going on
  • OCCT now uploads all monitoring data along with the system information to ocbase
  • Major UI refresh
  • Major bugfixes and improvements
  • Fixed some shadows feeling out place
  • Added a scrollbar in the settings screen
  • Prevented tab change in all cases when a test is running
  • Update HwInfo to 7.05
  • Improved parsing of Motherboard properties
  • The “Fixed” thread mode doesn’t force thread affinity anymore – this allows this mode to follow CPPC preferred core mechanism. The drawback is you don’t know, in this mode, which core produced an error
  • Added “–cpu-benchmarks” and “–memory-benchmarks” command line switches to add benchmarks to the current schedule
