ASRock X58 Extreme3 Motherboard Performance ReviewWed, Apr 21, 2010 - 12:00 AM
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.
Benchmark Results: Cinebench 11.5 provides a mixed bag of results. During the SMP tests the EVGA X58 motherboard came out ahead. While using only a single processor the ASRock X58 Extreme3 managed to come out on top.
