Benchmarks: Maya Render Test, ScienceMark 2

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.

The processor only has one core which is why it does not benefit from enabling dual core processing. In the single core tests, the Pentium M 740 does not trail the other processors by much, so it puts on an impressive show.

Mol Dyn: Molecular Dynamics is a method for simulating the thermodynamic behaviour of materials using their forces, velocities, and positions. Most important of the afore mentioned is the force. Primordia: This code calculates the Quantum Mechanical Hartree-Fock Orbital for each electron in any element of the periodic table Lower times indicate better results.

ScienceMark 2.0 allows the Pentium M 740 to really flex its muscles and while it comes in last, remember that this is a mobile processor.
