CINEBENCH is the free benchmarking tool for Windows and Mac OS based on the powerful 3D software CINEMA 4D. Consequently, the results of tests conducted using CINEBENCH 9.5 carry significant weight when analyzing a computer?s performance in everyday use. Especially a system?s CPU and the OpenGL capabilities of its graphics card are put through their paces (even multiprocessor systems with up to 16 dedicated CPUs or processor cores). During the testing procedure, all relevant data is ascertained with which the performance of different computers can subsequently be compared, regardless of operating system. Again, higher Frames/Second and lower rendering time in seconds equal better performance.
Cinebench 9.5 was able to put a 100% load across all the cores, which makes this a great benchmark to look at multi-core platforms.
Our SMP Cinebench 9.5 results show a two second drip between the Intel QX6700 and the QX6850, but let me explain how the increase is so great. When running the Intel QX6850 with 1333MHz memory at 7-7-7-20 timings it would score 14 seconds every time. After getting in Kingston’s new memory kit with 5-7-5-15 timings we were able to drop a full second off our benchmark results. The higher FSB and memory combination on the E6750 was also amazing as it beat out the ‘old’ Intel E6700 by a full five seconds on this great SMP benchmark!
