Autodesk's 3ds Max 8.0
Autodesk∆ 3ds Max∆ 8 software builds on our promise to deliver state-of-the-art tools for creative and media professionals. Developed as a total animation package with a deep, productive feature set designed to accelerate workflow, 3ds Max is the leader in 3D animation for game development, design visualization, visual effects, and education.
The reason why I added 3ds Max to the benchmarking mix should be obvious. It is a widely used, scalable application that is most frequently run on high-end, multi-processor servers like the ones we're looking at today. For these tests I downloaded the 8.0 trial version and used some Max Scripted 3dsMax 7.0 benchmark files.

There is a whole lot going on in that graph, and I really hope you can all follow it. In almost every single case, 3ds Max loves the extra cores, threads and closk speed. Again, I'm curious as to how the newer, faster, dual-core Opterons will perform in this same test.
