Pure 32-Bit Benchmarks: Maya Render Test, Super Pi

Maya Render Test Source: Maya-Test Center

Because of different displacement algorithms and continuous improvements of the renderer, Maya 6 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). Lower times are better.

3D rendering depends heavily on L2 cache, whereas office based applications are a little more forgiving. The decreased amount of L2 cache handicaps the AMD Sempron 3600+ severely in Maya Rendertest. Note that it generates the same 55 second result in each test because there is only one processing core within the Sempron 3600+.

Super Pi Source: SuperPI

SuperPI calculates the number PI to 1 Million digits in this raw number crunching benchmark. The benchmark is fairly diverse and allows the user to change the number of digits of PI that can be calculated from 16 Thousand to 32 Million. The benchmark, which uses 19 iterations in the test, is set 1 Million digits.

Lower numbers denote faster calculation times (seconds), and hence, better performance.

1 Million Digits: Seconds Ranking
Intel Pentium D 840 39
Intel Pentium D 940 40
AMD Athlon64 4000+ 35
AMD Athlon64 FX-60 32
AMD Athlon64 X2 5000+ 34
AMD Athlon64 FX-62 31
AMD Sempron 3600+ 42

Super Pi times are okay for a budget processor, but clearly this is one area where the AMD Sempron 3600+ does not shine.
