Dell Studio Hybrid Small Form Factor Desktop
Cinebench R10 Rendering Performance
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.
This is a multi-threaded, multi-processor aware benchmark that renders a single 3D scene and tracks the length of the entire process. The time it took each test system to render the entire scene is represented in the graph below, listed in seconds.
In this CPU intensive test, once again the Studio Hybrid puts up better numbers than the Athlon 64 X2 test system and is within striking distance of the 2.4GHz Core 2 Duo desktop system. All told, especially with its power consumption profile that we'll look at in the pages ahead, the Hybrid offers respectable performance for its size.
