Testing

We used Intel's DZ87KLT-75K motherboard to test the Core i3-4130, which was part of the official press kit sent for review. To test the AMD FX-8350 we used the Asus Crosshair V Formula motherboard which is based on the AMD 990FX chipset and Socket AM3+ CPU socket.

For the Intel LGA1155 processors, we used the Asus Maximus V while for LGA2011 processors we used the Asus P9X79 Pro.

Software

Below is a list of the applications we've used for our testing - most of them are available free for public consumption, although some are popular professional software applications.
We've used Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit SP1, as this is the most flexible and reliable 64-bit OS for testing the applications above.

As the Core i3-4130 lacks an unlocked multiplier, all results were obtained with it running at stock speed.
