Cinebench Benchmark Results
Maxon Cinebench is a real-world test suite that assesses the computer's performance capabilities. Cinebench is based on Maxon's award-winning animation software, Cinema 4D, which is used extensively by studios and production houses worldwide for 3D content creation. Maxon software has been used in blockbuster movies such as Spider-Man, Star Wars, The Chronicles of Narnia and many more. Cinebench Release 11.5 includes the ability to more accurately test the industry's latest hardware, including systems with up to 64 processor threads and the testing environment better reflects the expectations of today's production demands. A more streamlined interface makes testing systems and reading results incredibly straightforward.
The Cinebench R11.5 test scenario uses all of a system's processing power to render a photorealistic 3D scene, "No Keyframes" the viral animation by AixSponza. This scene makes use of various algorithms to stress all available processor cores. The OpenGL graphics card testing procedure uses a complex 3D scene depicting a car chase with which the performance of your graphics card in OpenGL mode is measured. During the benchmark tests the graphics card is evaluated by way of displaying an intricate scene that includes complex geometry, high-resolution textures, and a variety of effects to evaluate the performance across a variety of real-world scenarios.
There are really no surprises in the Cinebench tests as the M4A785TD-M EVO system easily outpaces the two Intel platforms. The real stunner here is the raw increase in CPU power provided by overclocking the Athlon-II X2-255 CPU. The ASUS M4A785TD-M EVO really makes it easy to overclock the CPU, RAM, and even the onboard GPU. The BIOS is setup in a convenient and understandable manner that is easy to use. Any computer user interested in an inexpensive way to embark on the journey of overclocking should take a good look at the M4A785TD-M EVO. As you can see, the performance boost offered by some simple overclocking of the CPU can really be beneficial to the system.
