Kribibench v1.1

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.


With Kribibench's software multithreaded, SSE optimized 3D rendering engine, we see a 45 - 75% performance advantage over a similarly clocked Core 2 Duo processor and up to two times the processing power over the AMD Athlon 64 FX-62 dual-core processor.  Kentsfield again makes a very strong showing when the software being driven by it is able to take advantage of all of its cores.
