MAXON CINEBENCH R10
CINEBENCH comes to us from MAXON, the developers of CINEMA 4D animation software. This benchmark runs several tests to measure performance of the processor and the graphics card under real-world circumstances. It can make use of up to 16 CPUs or CPU cores, but also includes a single-threaded test to provide an accurate comparison of efficiency and performance across a wide range of CPU types.
The resulting values among different operating systems are 100% comparable and therefore very useful with regard to purchasing decision making. It can also be used as a marketing tool for hardware vendors or simply to compare hardware among colleagues or friends.
One of the reasons we include CINEBENCH is to analyze the effects of multiple threads. The Core i7-870 and i7-920 easily top the charts thanks to Intel's hyper-threading. What's interesting is that the i7-870 actually takes the lead. Further, in the single-threaded benchmark, the Core i5-750 also tops the i7-920.
