Benchmarks (Continued)

Cinebench R10
 3D Rendering
Cinebench R10 is an OpenGL 3D rendering performance test based on Maxon's Cinema 4D, a 3D rendering and animation tool suite used by 3D animation houses and producers like Sony Animation and others. This benchmark is very demanding of system processor resources and is an excellent gauge of pure computational throughput. This is a multi-threaded, multi-processor aware benchmark that renders a single 3D scene and tracks the length of the entire process. Each test system’s final scores to render the scene are represented below.

Our Cinebench rendering tests show that the Atom's dual core processing capabilities make a difference, though it still took 9 minutes and 36 seconds to render the image.

 Audio Encoding

In our custom LAME MT MP3 encoding test, we convert a large WAV file to the MP3 format. This simulates a common scenario that many of us users work with on a regular basis to provide portability and storage of digital audio content. LAME is an open-source, mid- to high- bit-rate and VBR (variable bit rate) MP3 audio encoder that is widely used around the world in a multitude of third party applications.

In this test, we created our own 223MB WAV file and converted it to the MP3 format using the multi-thread capable LAME MT application in single and multi-threaded modes. Processing times are recorded below, listed in minutes:seconds. Shorter times equate to better performance.

Here again, the Atom processor isn't going to compete with the higher-end processors that you might find on some other systems, but it is right in line with other Atom based rigs.
