We launch standard MathematicaMark7 test from Wolfram Mathematica suite to measure the systems’ performance here.
We’ve got expected results again. The Core i7 series has no competition. Within this series, the CPU models perform according to the official price list.
We use special Cinebench test to measure the final rendering speed in Maxon Cinema 4D.
The more cores, the higher the performance is in this test. This explains the results if you take into account that Hyper-Threading allows executing two instruction threads on a single physical core.
Rendering speed in Autodesk 3ds max 2011 with both, Scanline as well as Mental Ray, was measured using SPECapc test.
The speed of rendering in 3ds max 2011 is similar to the Cinebench results. We can again see that AMD’s six-core CPUs can only compete with Intel’s quad-core solutions and that the LGA775 products are outdated.
