GSkill RipjawsX 32GB 2133MHz DDR3 review -
Performance Content Creation
CINEBENCH is a real-world cross platform test suite that evaluates your computer's performance capabilities. CINEBENCH is based on MAXON's 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 as Spider-Man, Star Wars, The Chronicles of Narnia and many more.
This test scenario uses all of your system's processing power to render a photorealistic 3D scene (from the viral 'No Keyframes' animation by AixSponza). This scene makes use of various different algorithms to stress all available processor cores.
This software has been added to the test suite starting this very review (hence the lack of more results) It can measure systems with up to 64 processor threads which makes it rather future proof for testing. The Cinema 4D engine also has a yearning thirst for HyperThreading and thus will be in favor of Intel processors that can hyper-thread.
The test scene contains approximately 2,000 objects containing more than 300,000 total polygons and uses sharp and blurred reflections, area lights and shadows, procedural shaders, antialiasing, and much more. The result is given in points (pts). The higher the number, the faster the processor. It's clear that the test is not rather memory bound.
Here again we see that 16GB (same memory yet 2 out of 4 sticks used) is faster them 32GB. It's weird but it might have to do with the memory controller having to processes a lot more data.
Fryrender is a benchmarking framework for anyone, not just for our customers or 3D users. Anyone out there, from hardware integrators or hardware reviewers to die-hard gamers. Since its conception, fryrender has been designed with the aim of being the most muscled engine in its category. As a result, and after several years of intense development, fryrender's core doesn't let a single CPU cycle be wasted. Its routines have been written to be cache efficient, and to take the maximum advantage possible of the new multi-threading capabilities present in modern CPU architectures.
This additional new title we started using very recently. Being a highly-optimized and extremely math-intensive application (mostly in floating-point) which makes a very efficient use of the system's cache, we think that fryrender is an ideal tool for measuring "how much brute computational power" a computer is able to deliver.
An excellent test to measure memory actually, as you can see faster memory does make a difference. However we are not talking sweet spots here. Memory at 1600/1866 MHz would definitely get you a little more bang for buck.
We review the GSkill RipjawsX 32GB 2133MHz DDR3 memory kit. That's right, a 32GB kit. This 4x 8GB kit can be set at 2133 MHz CAS9 with just the flick of an XMP switch in the BIOS.
