Kribibench 3D Modeling
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. 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 an enormous "Ultra" model that is comprised of over 16 billion polys...
Flat out, the OMEN takes a solid lead with the "Sponge Exploded" model, offering a 15%+ performance advantage over the fastest FX-60 reference score. When bogged down with 16 billion polygons however, the cache size advantage of the Pentium EE 965 and 955 allow then to offer stiff competition to their AMD-based rival from Voodoo PC.
