Cinebench R10 Synthetic OpenGL Rendering Performance
Higher Scores Are Better

Before we get into the real-world tests, we wanted to see how the QuadroCX stood up in a basic OpenGL workstation-class rendering benchmark. As the QuadroCX is based on the same hardware as the QuadroFX 4800, it's not surprising that we see these two cards giving virtually identical numbers. Both cards are slightly bested by ATI's new FirePro V8700, but easily best the GeForce 9600 GT (thrown in to showcase what a "basic" graphics card can handle today, in comparison to these high-end workstation cards).
