32-Bit CPU Rendering Benchmarks: Cinebench R10, Bibble 5.0

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.

Improved multi-core support in Windows 7 shows some benefit for the Athlon II X4 635 here.

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.

Multi-threaded applications like Bibble 5.0 are another point in the Athlon II X4 635's favor. While Intel's "Nehalem"-based quad core processors and AMD's Phenom II processors are predictably faster, it's still amazing how much performance you can get out of a processor that costs $120!
