MAXON; CINEBENCH R11.5:
MAXON recently released CINEBENCH Release 11.5, an advanced hardware
testing suite that assesses a computer’s performance capabilities.
CINEBENCH is based on the same powerful technology as MAXON’s
award-winning animation software CINEMA 4D, which is used extensively by
studios and production houses worldwide for 3D content creation. The
new version of CINEBENCH includes the ability to more accurately test
the industry’s latest hardware, including systems with up to 64
processor threads, and the testing environment better reflects the
expectations of today’s production demands. A more streamlined interface
makes testing systems and reading results incredibly straightforward.
Again, higher Frames/Second and point score equal better performance.
Cinebench R11.5 was able to put a 100% load across all the cores on
all of the processors, which makes this a great benchmark to look at
Benchmark Results: Running Cinebench R11.5 in 64-bit mode showed that the Intel Core i3-2105 processor was faster when one core was being used, but when all the cores were put to the test the AMD A8-3850 was able to score higher than the Core i3-2105.
Benchmark Results: We normally don’t run the OpenGL test in Cinebench, but with the graphics now being built into the chip by both AMD and Intel is is something we will start doing. According to Cinebench the AMD A8-3850 has nearly triple the performance in the OpenGL benchmark.
