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.
Benchmark Results: Running Cinebench
R11.5 in 64-bit mode showed modest improvements as the memory speed was increased.
Hyper PI is a nice update to the original SuperPi-mod. The front-end allows selecting multiple threads of SuperPi to be run at the same time so you can test the stability on multi-core machines. Another wonderful feature is its ability to temporarily disable certain Windows Vista and 7 features to prevent SuperPi from crashing! So if you are having trouble with Vista or Windows 7 then this is the version for you.
We ran Hyper PI 0.99b to two million places and on one of the available processors.
Benchmark Results: Increasing the memory speed was able to shave off nearly half a second when running Hyper PI to two million places.
