As a representative of professional 3D render programs, we chose the more theoretical application Spec ViewPerf 6.1.2 also the Cinemark 1.0. This benchmark is divided into three parts and lets the processor with and without the support of the graphics card render various 3D scenes.
Without With the help of the graphics card, the Pentium 4 can clearly win this test, but if the scene is created with OpenGL support by the graphics card, the Athlon XP can once again feel as the front runner. The results from Quake 3 or the Aquamark show that the cause for this cannot be found in the driver of the graphics card. In general, Cinema 4D leaves a confusing impression. While the Pentium 4 is faster at creating the scene without a graphics card, it has to admit defeat if the graphics card is used. Even with ray tracing, where actually only the processor is active, the Athlon XP can trump the Pentium 4, which makes it the winner of this partial test, although the Pentium 4 looked like the clear winner after the first test.
