Kribibench 3D Modeling
Kribibench is a rendering benchmark produced by the folks at Adept Development. This test is based on an SSE aware software only 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 a huge "Ultra" model that is comprised of over 16 billion polys.
Here we see similar results as compared to our previous Cinebench scores but the i955X Intel board steps out much more prominently posting a 3 - 8% edge over the fastest nForce 4 SLI Intel Edition board, which was the P5ND2-SLI Deluxe. Since this test is more heavily weighted toward raw CPU throughput, it's probably fair to speculate that the i955X board has slightly better efficiency in the CPU or chipset driver stack.
