Intel Core I7 950 3.06GHz Quad Core Processor ReviewThu, Dec 16, 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 straight forward. Again, higher Frames/Second and point score equal better performance.
Benchmark Results: The true six cores of the AMD Phenom II X6 1100T Black Edition was enough to edge out the four cores plus four threads of the Intel Core I7 950 in the SMP results by 8.6%. Single core results shows us that the Intel Core I7 950 has the advantage by 1%.
