Cinebench 2003 / ScienceMark 2
MAXON; CINEBENCH 2003:
CINEBENCH 2003 is the free benchmarking tool for Windows and Mac OS based on the powerful 3D software CINEMA 4D R8. The tool is set to deliver accurate benchmarks by testing not only a computer's raw processing speed but also all other areas that affect system performance such as OpenGL, multithreading, multiprocessors and Intel's HT Technology. CINEBENCH 2003 includes render tasks that test the performance of up to 16 multiprocessors on the same computer
Results: just a second seperate the nForce4 SLI Intel Edition and the i955X Express chipset, but it is enough to give the NVIDIA chipset the lead.
ScienceMark 2.0 Final:
Science Mark 2.0 is an attempt to put the truth behind benchmarking. In an attempt to model real world demands and performance, ScienceMark 2.0 is a suite of high-performance benchmarks that realistically stress system performance without architectural bias. Lower results (time in seconds) represent better performance. All of our testing was completed on the 32 Bit Final benchmark version that is dated March 21st 2005.
Results: Can you say too close to call a winner? Less than a second seperate all of the tests we ran in ScienceMark 2.0!
General Game Testing:
Results: When running DOOM3 and Comanche 4 it is again clear that the chipsets are performing head to head with no major differences in gaming performance.
