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
Benchmark Results: When it comes to multi-core performance the Intel Pentium G620 and G850 are the only dual-core processors without Hyper-Threading in the group and the performance wasn’t enough to keep up with the other processors. If you look at single threaded performance though the Intel Pentium Processor G620 and G850 both do very well and were actually faster than the AMD ‘Llano’ A-Series of APUs.
Benchmark Results: Cinebench can also test OpenGL performance and we know that the bottleneck on the Intel Pentium Processor G620, Pentium G850 and the Intel Core i3-2120 is the Intel HD 2000 graphics running at 1100MHz. This graphics solution is nothing to write home about and you can see that the Intel HD 3000 graphics used on the Intel Core i3-2105 and Intel Core i7-2600K is a significantly faster graphics solution.
