CINEBENCH is a real-world test suite that assesses your computer's performance 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).
Though both system processors share the same clock speed, the Serenity completed the multi-core rendering test in exactly half the time it took the ASRock Core 100HT-BD (OC'd to 2.8GHz) that we recently reviewed to do so; a mere 50 seconds to render the bike. In addition to the Serenity having six more logical cores than the dual-core ASRock, the Puget has the added advantage of a solid-state HDD and a more robust video card, too.
