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: The ASUS Z87-Pro with all cores synced took the top spot in Cinebench R11.5 when running the all cores benchmark with a score of 8.58. Running the single core benchmark it was a different story and was the slowest of all the Intel ‘Haswell’ boards. Running the ASUS Z87-Pro using only the Intel XMP profile the all cores benchmark scored only 8.14 while the single core benchmark scored the second highest with a score of 1.76 points..
