CINEBENCH is a real-world test suite that assesses your computer's performace capabilities. MAXON CINEBENCH is based on MAXON's award-winning animation software, CINEMA 4D, which is used extensively by studios and production houses worldwide for 3D content creation. MAXON software has been used in blockbuster movies such as Spider-Man, Star Wars, The Chronicles of Narnia and many more.


MAXON CINEBENCH runs several tests on your computer to measure the performance of the main processor and the graphics card under real world circumstances. The benchmark application makes use of up to 16 CPUs or CPU cores and is available for Windows (32-bit and 64-Bit) and Macintosh (PPC and Intel-based).




CINEBENCH R10 has never been great for NVIDIA cards. Some say that it's because NVIDIA have limited the performance under these kinds of tests to make sure their Quadro based cards sell. Whatever reason it is, we still find the models fall behind.


R11.5 paints a different picture; the NVIDIA cards put out similar numbers with there being very little difference between the GTX 285 and GTX 470. The GTX 470 actually performs slightly behind in this case. Compared to the ATI offerings, though, under R11.5 we do see that the GTX 470 is able to pull out a win.
