Performance - CPU-Bound 3D Rendering

CPU-Bound 3D Rendering

We recently stumbled onto this great little tool called Kribi bench. It is a 3D rendering benchmark produced by the people at Adept Development. Kribi bench is an SSE aware software renderer where a 3D model is rendered and animated by the host CPU and the average frame rate is reported. Now the great thing is, it therefore bypasses the GPU .. so everything is in direct relation towards your memory and CPU.

This software is a 100% multi-threaded application, which loves SMP, HT and everything you can throw at it. We always see the multiple cores kick in very well with this test, obviously the Core i7 takes a lead. The test likes hyper-threading big-time. But again we see a good performance increase for Phenom II overall.

We use the "Sponge Explode" model consisting of over 19.2 million rendered polygons. The outcomes is the actual number of frames rendered by the CPU per second, higher is better.

And once overclocked we see very similar scaling compared to the other results. This really is lovely performance you guys. Most of you have something like a Core 2 E8400 processor right ? To make things relevant, that one is pushing out 4,5 FPS.
