EVGA nForce 790i SLI FTW Digital PWM Motherboard

Cinebench and POV-Ray Test Results

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.

These results fall in line with our expectations. They show that both boards offer similar CPU performance.

POV-Ray 3.7 beta 29
Ray Tracing

POV-Ray , or the Persistence of Vision Ray-Tracer, is a top-notch open source tool for creating realistically lit 3D graphics artwork. We tested with POV-Ray's standard 'all-CPU' benchmarking tool on all of our test motherboards and recorded the scores reported for each. Results are measured in pixels-per-second throughput; higher scores equate to better performance.

Like the Cinebench test, the POV-Ray test shows that the EVGA nForce 790i SLI FTW Digital PWM offers similar CPU performance to the Intel X38 Express board.
