CINEBENCH 10 System Tests

CINEBENCH is a real-world test suite that assesses your computer's performance capabilities. MAXON 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. MAXON CINEBENCH runs several tests on your computer to measure the performance of the main processor and the graphics card under real world circumstances. The benchmark application makes use of up to 16 CPUs or CPU cores and is available for Windows (32-bit and 64-Bit) and Macintosh (PPC and Intel-based). 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.

We used the predefined benchmark included with the software and reported the rendering scores for both a single core (1 CPU) and for all four cores (All CPUs). We also ran the built in Open GL benchmark that is included with the CINEBENCH benchmarking suite.

SuperPi System Tests

Super Pi is used by many overclockers to test the performance and stability of their computers. In the overclocking community, the standard program provides a benchmark for enthusiasts to compare "world record" pi calculation times and demonstrate their overclocking abilities. The program can also be used to test the stability of a certain overclock speed. If a computer is able to calculate PI to the 32 millionth place after the decimal without mistake, it is considered to be moderately stable in terms of RAM and CPU. However, longer tests with other CPU/RAM intensive calculation programs will run for hours instead of minutes and may better stress system stability. While Super Pi is not the fastest program for calculating Pi, it remains very popular in the hardware and overclocking communities.

We ran and reported calculations for 1M, 2M, and 4M.

As the P6T deluxe 'OC Palm Edition' is the first retail release from Asus under the X58 banner it will be used as the benchmark for other motherboards to compete against. It boasts an amazing array of features, SLI/Crossfire compatibility, Triple channel DDR3 and of course support for Intel's latest CPU, Nehalem. Costing near £275 it certainly isn't cheap, £30 more than the standard edition but as the title suggests, the OC Palm edition has a new(ish) feature that some may have seen before on the P5B Premium boards. The 'Screen Duo' has been re-incarnated and included in the P6T package, let's hope it is a more worthwhile addition than the previous attempt.
