Kribibench v1.1

For this next batch of tests, we ran Kribibench v1.1, a 3D rendering benchmark produced by the folks at Adept Development.  Kribibench is an SSE aware software renderer where a 3D model is rendered and animated by the host CPU and the average frame rate is reported.

Kribibench v1.1


We used two of the included models with this benchmark: a "Sponge Explode" model consisting of over 19.2 million polygons and the test suite's "Ultra" model that is comprised of over 16 billion polys.


The new QuadFX platform scaled relatively well in the two 3D models we used for testing with Kribibench, but Intel's quad-core Core 2 Extreme QX6700 had a clear advantage in both tests. The Intel platform also scaled better here. In the "Sponge Explode" test, the QX6700 was 45.5% faster than the E6700; the QuadFX FX-72 was 21.1% faster than the Athlon 64 FX-62. In the more taxing "Ultra" test, the QX6700 outperformed the E6700 by 76.5%, and the FX-72 beat the FX-62 by about 64%.
