CINEBENCH 2003 is the free benchmarking tool for Windows and Mac OS based on the powerful 3D software CINEMA 4D R8. The tool is set to deliver accurate benchmarks by testing not only a computer’s raw processing speed but also all other areas that affect system performance such as OpenGL, multithreading, multiprocessors and Intel’s new HT Technology. Again, higher Frames/Second and lower rendering time in seconds equal better performance.
Our Cinebench results show again how the X6800 just reigns supreme over anything green (meaning AMD), completing our benchmarks at a 39% faster pace in single CPU bench and 38% in the SMP results. The E6700 also has a strong showing here, but certainly its performance is dwarfed by its big brother, the X6800. Funny thing is, the E6700 would certainly have caused quite an excitement on its own when compared to what we see in our FX-62 and 5000+ cpus.
