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 fourth generation Intel Core i7 4770K certainly brought it’s a-game to Cinebench. On both the ASUS ROG Maximus VI Hero and the GIGABYTE Z87X-UD3H it scored 8.56 points when using all of the available cores. When we ran the single core test the ASUS ROG Maximus VI Hero step up the game with a score of 1.77 which is faster than the GIGABYTE Z87X-UD3H score of 1.73.
