Performance in 3ds max and Cinema4D
To test the CPUs performance during final rendering we used a new sixth version of 3ds max. Besides the rendering speed for a single frame, we also measured the animation rendering speed with simultaneous recording of the results into an avi-file.
We have already mentioned that Pentium 4 processors are winning the single frame final rendering tests (mostly due to Hyper-Threading technology), while CPUs with AMD64 architecture are ahead during movie rendering. There is another interesting thing: Prescott is again lagging behind Northwood, with the gap being the biggest exactly during single-frame rendering.
During final rendering tests in CINEMA 4D Pentium 4 on Prescott core again demonstrated very poor performance.
