Next up, we ran the Kribibench rendering benchmark produced by the folks at Adept Development. Kribibench is an SSE aware software renderer. A 3D model is rendered and animated by the host CPU, and the average frame rate is reported. We used two of the included models with this benchmark: an "Exploded Sponge" model consisting of over 19.2 million polygons and then its enormous "Ultra" model that is comprised of over 16 billion polygons.
With both the Sponge Explode Model and the intensive Ultra Model, all three motherboard's performances were on the same level. The AL8 appears to enjoy a solid lead when you look at the graphs, but we are really talking about tenths of a frame per second.
