The completely reworked MAXON CINEBENCH R10 is now available for all users, manufacturers and hardware testers who want to test the performance of graphics cards and CPUs for either Macintosh or Windows systems. The new version of MAXON CINEBENCH R10 contains new test scenes especially designed to meet the demands of state-of-the-art hardware. Like its predecessors, MAXON CINEBENCH R10 is also based on MAXON Computer's Hollywood-proven software, CINEMA 4D.
The CPU test, which renders a 3D scene photo-realistically, now applies even more performance-intensive functions such as area light sources, procedural shaders, Ambient Occlusion and multi-level reflections. Especially when used on faster, multi-core CPU systems, MAXON CINEBENCH R10 delivers much more accurate results.
The graphics cards tests have also been thoroughly reworked. The computer running the test must execute a camera flight at maximum speed to determine the performance of the graphics card.
The MAXON CINEBENCH R10 uses a wide range of algorithms and instructions which ensure that the tests performed deliver a very good overview of a system's overall performance capabilities, also with regard to other CPU and graphics card-intensive tasks. MAXON CINEBENCH R10 supports up to 16 CPUs or CPU cores and runs under Windows (2000, XP, Vista in 32-bit or 64-bit) or Mac OS X (with PowerPC and Intel processors).
It's a real-world test suite that assesses your computer's performace capabilities. MAXON CINEBENCH is based on MAXON's award winning animation software CINEMA 4D, which is used extensively by studios and production houses worldwide for 3D content creation. MAXON software has been used in blockbuster movies such and Spiderman, Star Wars, The Chronicles of Narnia and many more.
MAXON CINEBENCH runs several tests on your computer to measure the performance of the main processor and the graphics card under real world circumstances. The benchmark application makes use of up to 16 CPUs or CPU cores and is available for Windows (32- and 64-Bit) and Macintosh (PPC- and Intel-based).
The resulting values among different Operating Systems are 100% comparable and therefore very useful with regard to purchasing decision-making. It can also be used as a marketing tool for hardware vendors or simply to compare hardware among colleagues or friends.
