if you want to see what your computer can do you need to bench mark test it for proformence for what you are using it for. ..

Performance doesn’t mean going by what Microsoft says your stuff is. you can render with a i5 as well.
But to me performance is everything working 3d, especially if my stuff if burning up in less than 2 years.
Being able to tune My systems memory, CPU & GPU can save the life of my system.
I learned that the hard way..lol running maxed out shaders and lights maps can heat up your graphics card and memory chips , and prolonged HD rendering such as for animation, and aftereffects, can heat up your processor. being able to control temperatures and power ratios to your hardware is a good thing. After dropping another $700 for Graphic card and SSD drive, I am taking precautions this time.
who wants to wait around for renders,
