Gigabyte GA-890GPA-UD3H Motherboard Review – AMD 890GXTue, Mar 02, 2010 - 8:00 AM
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 the processor, which makes this a great benchmark to look at
Running Cinebench R11.5 in 64-bit mode hardly showed a performance difference between the two motherboards on the CPU benchmark.
Looking at OpenGL performance we found the Gigabyte 890GPA-UD3H does a little better with the Radeon HD 5870 installed in the test system, but not a difference that we would call significant.
