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.


The Intel 975X Express had a distinct advantage in the Kribibench benchmark, regardless of the model being rendered, and despite the fact that all of the test systems were powered by the exact same processor and graphics card. As you can see, the 975X Express took the top spot in both Kribibench tests, followed closely behind by the nForce 680i SLI, and then the 590 SLI Intel Edition.
