Rendering Performance: Cinebench 9.5
Cinebench 9.5 is based on the 3D software, Cinema 4d. It is very useful to measure the performance gain given by having more than one CPU installed on the system when rendering heavy 3D images.
This software provides five results, Rendering 1 CPU, which measures the rendering performance using just one CPU, Rendering x CPUs, which measures the rendering performance using all CPUs available on the system, Cinema 4D shading, OpenGL Software Lighting and OpenGL Hardware Lighting. Since we were interested in measuring the rendering performance, we are going to compare the “Rendering x CPUs” results from all CPUs (“Rendering 1 CPU” in the case of Athlon 64 3800+ and Pentium 4 550).
Here the results were quite interesting. All dual-core CPUs from AMD included in our review were faster than Core 2 Duo E6700: Athlon 64 FX-62 was 28.67% faster, Athlon 64 FX-60 and Athlon 64 X2 5000+ were 19.28% faster, and Athlon 64 X2 4600+ was 10.21% faster.
Core 2 Extreme X6800, on the other hand, was faster than all CPUs included in our comparison: it was 15.49% faster than Athlon 64 FX-62, 24.59% faster than Athlon 64 FX-60 and Athlon 64 X2 5000+, 34.83% faster than Athlon 64 X2 4600+, 48.60% faster than Core 2 Duo E6700, 149.17% faster than Athlon 64 3800+ and 181.88% faster than Pentium 4 550.
