Cinebench Rendering and Lame Encoding Tests

Cinebench R10 is an OpenGL 3D rendering performance test based on Cinema 4D. Cinema 4D from Maxon 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 R10
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.


In the immortal words of the great Yogi Bera, it's like deja vu all over again.  The Asus P6T6 WS Revolution just barely outpaces the other two X58 Express-based boards but all boards finish this test pretty much right on top of one another.

LAME MT MP3 Encoding Test
Audio Encoding with Up To Two Threads of Processing

In this test, we created our own 223MB WAV file (a hallucinogenically-induced Grateful Dead jam) and converted it to the MP3 format using the multi-thread capable LAME MT application in single and multi-thread modes. Processing times are recorded below, listed in seconds. Shorter times equate to better performance.


By now you should be getting the picture that, in terms of processing horsepower and memory bandwidth, in real-world applications, there isn't much in terms of performance that separates one X58 motherboard from another.  In general we're looking at less than a 2% differential between these three boards, in terms of the performance numbers we've seen thus far.
