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: When it comes to multi-core performance the AMD FX-8150 loses out to the Intel Core i7-2600K by nearly a full point and was just barely ahead of the AMD Phenom II X6 1100T processor.
Benchmark Results: When looking at single core performance you can see that the FX-8150 processor doesn’t do too hot as it’s single core performance is actually lower than the previous generation Thuban and Deneb cores.
