ASRock Vision 3D 137B HTPC with NVIDIA 3DTV Play

Performance: Cinebench and 3DMark

Cinebench R11.5 is an tile-based rendering performance test based on Cinema 4D from Maxon. Cinema 4D is a 3D rendering and animation tool suite used by 3D animation houses and producers like Sony Animation and many others.  It's very demanding of system processor resources and is an excellent gauge of pure computational throughput.

Cinebench R11.5
3D Rendering

This is a multi-threaded, multi-processor aware benchmark that renders a single 3D scene and tracks the length of the entire process. The rate at which each test system was able to render the entire scene is represented in the graph below.


Like the PCMark Vantage tests on the previous page, the ASRock Vision 3D PC blows all of the other systems out of the water in our Cinebench R11.5 tests.

3DMark Vantage CPU Score
DirectX Gaming

3DMark Vantages built-in CPU tests are multi-threaded DirectX gaming metrics that are useful for comparing relative performance between similarly equipped systems. This tests consists of two different 3D scenes that are processed with a software renderer that is dependent on the host CPU's performance. Calculations that are normally reserved for the 3D accelerator are instead sent to the CPU for processing and rendering. The system's performance in each test is used to determine the final score.

3DMark Vantage's CPU performance test shows a huge performance advantage for the ASRock Vision 3D HTPC. The Core i3 processor used in the machine is much more powerful than the E-350 APU or Atom processors used in the others, and it shows here.
