Cinebench R11.5 Benchmarks

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.

Happy to see some processor and videocard combinations in the benchmarks. Most other sites just used processors with the integrated graphics. This review actually shows the difference between the new Trinity processors and an Intel chip with a discrete video card. Great review!

(I think you might have a typo in the page index; the second DirectX link should be DX11?)

Has anyone seen any reviews using the raid 5 of the A85X chip? I'd really like to know how well it works

Well, I went ahead and built a 3 drive RAID with the new 2TB WD RED drives. Seems OK to me, but I'm not sure how to make a good test of the array.

It was a pain to get my SSD boot drive to work though, still not sure it's set correctly.

Would be very nice if there were some A85X mini ITX motherboards that had integrated WIFI and Bluetooth since there are no expansion slots and I am not interested in sacrificing two USB ports to get these basic wireless connectivity radios.

Max temp would depend on the cooling system. My Core i7-3930K has never gone over 45C (12x prime95), as I know how to cool a CPU. On the other hand, with no cooler, a 2GHz "cool" chip will overheat. I don't think any of my A10-xxxx's have ever gone over 50C, even at 100% CPU/GPU.

we r talking about the a8 5600k right ??? i have i7 2600k and it never reaches 54 during game play via bf3 and at idle im 24 but this amd a8 5600k hits 80-85 during gameplay idle is round 40-44 so looking at ther numbers its safe to say idle temp doubles during intence gameplay

I currently only have A10-5800K, but since it's just a faster and there for hotter version, but I'm not seeing those temps. What cooler are you using. I haven't used a factory cooler in 20 years.
