Next up, we ran Kribibench, a 3D rendering benchmark produced by the folks at Adept Development. Kribibench is an SSE aware software renderer. 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 a gargantuan "Ultra" model that is comprised of over 16 billion polys...
The current trend continued with the two Kribibench models. Both systems are running at similar performance levels. If a leader must be declared, we would have to give that title to the Gigabyte 8I945P-G, which finished just fractions of a frame per second faster than the SD31P. Again, these benchmark differences are completely negligible, and well within standard testing method allowances.
