32-Bit CPU Rendering Benchmarks: Cinebench R10, Bibble 5

Cinebench R10 Source: CINEBENCH

CINEBENCH is a real-world test suite that assesses your computer's performace capabilities. CINEBENCH runs several tests on your computer to measure the performance of the main processor under real world circumstances. The benchmark application makes use of up to 16 CPUs or CPU cores to render a photo-reaslistic image. The scene makes use of various CPU-intensive features such as reflection, ambient occlusion, area lights and procedural shaders. In the first run, the benchmark only uses one CPU (or CPU core), to ascertain a reference value. On computers that have multiple CPUs or CPU cores and on those who simulate multiple CPUs (via HyperThreading or similar technolgies), MAXON CINEBENCH will run a second test using all available CPU power.
Higher results are best. Cinebench is multi-threaded.

AMD Phenom II X3 720 Black Edition (DDR2) 7064
AMD Phenom II X3 720 Black Edition (DDR3) 7104

While the Intel Core 2 Duo's single-core performance is tops in Cinebench, this render test scales excellently on multiple cores and can take advantage of hyperthreading, both of which the Core 2 Duo E8400 processor is deficient in compared to its multi-core bretheren, so it comes in dead last.

Bibble 5.0 Source: Bibble Labs

Bibble 5 is a multi-threaded photographic workflow application that can be used to demonstrate the ability to scale work load across 4, 8, 16 or more processor cores. The basic process we will use for benchmarking is to convert a batch of 50 RAW image files from a digital SLR camera from their original RAW format to JPEG's at full resolution, using the applications default image settings. Lower results are best.

AMD Phenom II X3 720 Black Edition (DDR2) 20.6969
AMD Phenom II X3 720 Black Edition (DDR3) 31.2

Bibble 5 is designed to scale to multiple cores, which means that the Core 2 Duo E8400 CPU is rendering the RAW photos to JPEG at a speed comparable to the Phenom II X3 720 processor.

POV-Ray 3.7 Beta 30 Source: POV-RAY

Ray-tracing is a rendering technique that calculates an image of a scene by simulating the way rays of light travel in the real world. In the real world, rays of light are emitted from a light source and illuminate objects. The light reflects off of the objects or passes through transparent objects. This reflected light hits our eyes or perhaps a camera lens. Because the vast majority of rays never hit an observer, it would take forever to trace a scene. Ray-tracing programs like POV-Ray start with their simulated camera and trace rays backwards out into the scene. The user specifies the location of the camera, light sources, and objects as well as the surface texture properties of objects, their interiors (if transparent) and any atmospheric media such as fog, haze, or fire.

Lower render times are better, however higher Pixel Per Second rendering values are best. Pov-ray is multi-threaded.

AMD Phenom II X3 720 Black Edition (DDR2) 1751.71
AMD Phenom II X3 720 Black Edition (DDR3) 1753.53

The Core 2 Duo E8400 processor manages to render slightly faster the Phenom II X3 720 Black Edition, despite pushing the least amount of pixels per second.
