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 multi-core platforms.
Benchmark Results: When it comes to multi-core performance the Intel XEON E5-2660 processors scored 20.13 points. That is 75.7% faster than the Intel Core i7 3960X which scored 11.46 points.
Benchmark Results: The single core performance of the Intel XEON E5-2660 processors wasn't as impressive. It was only able to squeeze out a score of 1.21 which is behind the Intel Core i3 2105. We have to keep in mind that the Intel Grizzly Pass server isn't designed for single threaded applications. Having a pair of the XEON E5-2660 chips it offers 16 cores and 32 threads of processing power, though they are running 900MHz slower than the Intel Core i7 3960X.
