AMD Phenom II X4 965 Black Edition 3.4 GHz Socket AM3 125W Processor Review

AMD Phenom II X4 965 Black Edition 3.4 GHz Socket AM3 125W Processor Review - PCSTATS
Abstract: In most other respects the quad core 3.4GHz Phenom II X4 965 Black Edition 125W revision remains the same. The architecture is "Deneb", the socket is AM3 and the CPU still features 6MB of shared L3 and 512KB of L2 cache for each of the four cores.

CPU Rendering Benchmarks: POV-Ray 3.7

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.

The Phenom II X4 965 Black Edition (125W) does an excellent job in POV-Ray, with the lowest render time yet. The Core i5 750 and Core i7 920 can't keep up with AMD in this test.

Pov-Ray again doesn't show a substantial difference between Windows 7 and Windows Vista scores, so not much changes in the way the processors rank here.
