Kribibench 1.1 Benchmarks
Next up was Kribibench, a 3D rendering benchmark produced by the folks at Adept Development. Kribibench is an SSE aware software 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: a "Sponge Explode" model consisting of over 19.2 million polygons and a gargantuan "Ultra" model that is comprised of over 16 billion polys...
Gigabyte gets off a one-two punch in the Kribibench testing. Both tests had the GA-8N-SLI board in a lead that relative to the times listed was notable, but in real-world performance would wind up being negligible. Although most of these tests have been decided by fractions of a second, we're mostly impressed by how often the GA-8N-SLI has been putting in the best times. Generally, we would expect that the boards would flip-flop in the benchmarks, with one board taking a test here or there, but it's been almost all GB.
