Canada Computers Content Creator X2 Workstation System Review

Canada Computers Content Creator X2 Workstation System Review - PCSTATS
Abstract: Built around a e 2.4GHz dual core Athlon64 X2 4800+ CPU, and pre-installed with Microsoft WindowsXP Professional, the system should have plenty of potential pixel kicking power.

64 Bit Benchmarks: Maya Render Test, AMD DiVX Encoder Benchmark, Minigzip

Maya 4 Render Test Source: Maya-Test Center

Because of different displacement algorithms and continuous improvements of the renderer, Maya 3 and its corresponding batch renderer is absolutely required. The Test Scene is fairly processor-intensive and can take anywhere from 2 to 20 minutes to render depending on your system specifications. Rendering produces 1 frame (512x512pixels).

If you intend to work with 3D rendering software like Maya, the Canada Computers Content Creator X2 certainly has plenty of power. Most professional 3D programs are SMP compatible, just be sure the feature is enabled when you go to render a scene. Maya 4 does not appear to have any preferences to whether a pure 32-bit operating system or 64-bit OS are installed. At the very least, this means if you are running WindowsXP Professional x64 Edition there won't be a performance penalty with this program.

DiVX Encoding Source: PCStats

The DivX encoder benchmark contains both a 32-bit and a 64-bit benchmark that measures the performance of raw video encoding of the AMD optimized DivX video encoder version 503.

CC Content Creator X2 32 Bit OS/32 Bit Software 168.89
CC Content Creator X2 64 Bit OS/32 Bit Software 166.08
CC Content Creator X2 64 Bit OS/64 Bit Software 200.22

In the DiVX Encoding tests we get a very slight performance boost when running with a 64 bit OS but we get a very large boost when running the 64 bit version of the program.

Mini-GZIP Source: zlib

The Mini-GZIP benchmark contains both 64-bit benchmark that measures the performance of an AMD64 optimized version of ZLIB. It also contains a 32-bit benchmark implemented with the standard (unmodified) ZLIB. Lower is better.

Mini-Gzip
System Seconds Ranking
CC Content Creator X2 32 Bit OS/32 Bit Software 7.968
CC Content Creator X2 64 Bit OS/32 Bit Software 8.031
CC Content Creator X2 64 Bit OS/64 Bit Software 3.437

Like with DiVX encoding, Mini-Gzip gets a huge performance boost when running the 64 bit software version but doesn't seem to perform the data compression any faster than the Athlon64 4000+ we tested earlier. This benchmark is obviously single threaded, something one should consider when going dual core.
