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 straight forward. Again, higher Frames/Second and point score equal better performance.
Benchmark Results: Cinebench is a great benchmark for testing multi-core and single-core performance. The single-core performance of the AMD Phenom II X6 1055T and the Intel Core I7 930 was a dead heat with both processors scoring .99 points in Cinebench 11.5. Multi-core performance shows that the true six cores of the AMD Phenom II X6 1055T was superior to the four cores plus the four additional threads of the Intel Core I7 930.
