R11.5 is a 3D rendering
performance test based on Cinema 4D from Maxon. Cinema 4D is a 3D
rendering and animation suite used by animation houses and producers
like Sony Animation and many others. It's very demanding of processor
resources and is an excellent gauge of pure computational throughput.
|3D Rendering Benchmark
This is a multi-threaded, multi-processor aware benchmark that renders a
photorealistic 3D scene (from the viral "No Keyframes" animation by
AixSponza). This scene makes use of various algorithms to stress all
available processor cores
. The rate at which each test system was able to render the entire scene is represented in the graph below.
Again we see a tight cluster of scores, this time in Cinebench. The Maximus VI Impact turned in a surprisingly high score compared to the rest of the field in the multithreaded test, although the tiny motherboard beat out the competition by the slimmest of margins. The Maximus VI Formula did the same in the single-thread test.
|Ray Tracing Benchmark
POV-Ray, or the Persistence of Vision Ray-Tracer, is an open source tool
for creating realistically lit 3D graphics artwork. We tested with
POV-Ray's standard 'one-CPU' and 'all-CPU' benchmarking tools on all of
our test machines, and recorded the scores reported for each. Results
are measured in pixels-per-second throughput; higher scores equate to
In POV-Ray there's incredible parity between these systems; each one scored within a few points of one another, and those point differentials represent rather small percentages.
