CINEBENCH 9.5 (x64)

CINEBENCH is the free benchmarking tool for Windows and Mac OS based on the powerful 3D software CINEMA 4D. The tool is set to deliver accurate benchmarks by testing not only a computer's raw processing speed but also all other areas that affect system performance such as OpenGL, multithreading, multiprocessors and Intel's new HT Technology.

CINEBENCH includes render tasks that test the performance of up to 16 multiprocessors on the same computer as well as software-only shading tests and OpenGL shading tests on huge numbers of animated polygons that will push any computer to its limits.

We've been big fans of CINEBENCH for quite some time now. 64bit capable, scalable and based on an actual, professional 3D software package... What's not to like?

I was pleasantly surprised with the performance of the SuperServer 5015M-UR in this test.

In the C4D and single core test, the Core 2 Quad processor in the Supermicro box actually bests Woodcrest. Once we get to the multiprocessor/core test however, this single processor can't compete with dual Woodcrests and Clovertowns.
