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.
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 the single CPU benchmark thanks to it’s high clock frequency. When SMP is enabled and all the cores are used the Intel Core 2 Extreme Processor QX6700 shows its stuff and completes the benchmark in just 15 seconds with the Quad FX platform coming in one second behind. The QX6700 processor used to finish 20.6 seconds before the leading desktop processor from AMD, but AMD has reduced that gap to just one second on the SMP benchmark.
