32-Bit CPU Rendering Benchmarks: POV-Ray

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.

Pov-Ray 3.7 has the Core i5 750 ahead of everything but the Phenom II X4 955 Black Edition. The 965 Black Edition should also do well in this test, but seems to have some strange issues in Pov-Ray.

PCSTATS Benchmark ReportPov-Ray 3.7 BETA 30 - Windows 7
Render Time (sec) Ranking
Intel Core i7 920 100.06
Intel Core i5 750 100.7
Intel Core 2 Duo E8400 192.4
AMD Phenom II X4 965 Black Edition 92.76
Render Average (Pixels Per Sec) Ranking
Intel Core i7 920 2619.79
Intel Core i5 750 2603.22
Intel Core 2 Duo E8400 1362.53
AMD Phenom II X4 965 Black Edition 2826.14

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.
