All in all, everything looks very similar to what we have already seen in the previous tests. Well-paralleled rendering algorithms benefit from the new core. Here I would also like to draw your attention to another curious fact that cannot be seen from the diagrams. The thing is the dual-core Core 2 Duo E8500 processor during final rendering has almost caught up with the youngest quad-core AMD CPU, Phenom 9500, although it may seem unbelievable. According to our tests, this AMD processor scores 5.61 in 3ds max 9, and 7114 in Cinebench R10.
