New Version of Benchmarking Suite for Testing Processor and Graphics Card Performance
3Dup.com - August 15, 2007 - 09:00
The completely reworked Maxon Cinebench R10 is now available for all users, manufacturers and hardware testers who want to test the performance of graphics cards and CPUs for either Macintosh or Windows systems. The new version of Maxon Cinebench R10 contains new test scenes especially designed to meet the demands of state-of-the-art hardware. Like its predecessors, Maxon Cinebench R10 is also based on Maxon Computer’s Hollywood-proven software, Cinema 4D.
The CPU test, which renders a 3D scene photo-realistically, now applies even more performance-intensive functions such as area light sources, procedural shaders, Ambient Occlusion and multi-level reflections. Especially when used on faster, multi-core CPU systems, Maxon Cinebench R10 delivers much more accurate results.
The graphics cards tests have also been thoroughly reworked. The computer running the test must execute a camera flight at maximum speed to determine the performance of the graphics card.
The Maxon Cinebench R10 uses a wide range of algorithms and instructions which ensure that the tests performed deliver a very good overview of a system’s overall performance capabilities, also with regard to other CPU and graphics card-intensive tasks. Maxon Cinebench R10 supports up to 16 CPUs or CPU cores and runs under Windows (2000, XP, Vista in 32-bit or 64-bit) or Mac OS X (with PowerPC and Intel processors).
