For this next batch of tests, we ran Kribibench v1.1, a 3D rendering benchmark produced by the folks at Adept Development. Kribibench is an SSE aware software renderer where 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 the test suite's "Ultra" model that is comprised of over 16 billion polys.
We had another photo-finish in our Kribibench tests. While rendering and animating the 'sponge explode' model, the Core 2 Duo E6750 and E6700 finished with the exact same framerate of 5.38FPS. While rendering the more taxing 'ultra' model, the E6750 fell just slightly behind the E6700, but again the difference falls within the margin of error in this benchmark.
