Cinebench has been a staple of the OC3D benchmark suite since we began and it is very good at testing both the single threaded performance as well as the overall thread count of your setup, regardless of which version you choose to run. Watching it on high core count CPUs is spectacular.
The key takeaway is how much of an improvement Intel have found on their single threaded performance. Whether the hybrid cores are helping here without being visible to Cinebench as more than one core we don't know. It's a big step forwards.
