Pentium D 820 and i945G/P Chipset Showcase
Kribibench is an advanced software rendering multithreaded application that is extremely CPU dependant. We loaded two separate models that are included with the program and recorded the results in frames per second. First we ran the Sponge Explode Model, which renders 19.2 million polygons, then we loaded the Ultra model, consisting of 16 billion polygons.
In both cases, the Pentium D 820 turned out much higher results than the comparison processors. In both rendering models we are looking at close to a 30% performance advantage with the dual-core 820. After that, the scores reflect clockspeeds and Intel's Hyper-Threading advantages, with the remaining Pentium's virtually and the Athlon 64 3200+ bringing up the rear.
