Cinema 4D

As a representative of professional 3D render programs, we chose the more theoretical application Spec ViewPref 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.

Cinema 4D - Shading

    • P4 2.53/533 - PC1066

    • XP 2100+ - PC266

      16.03
    • XP 1900+ - PC266 *
      15.56

In the shading test, the Intel processors from all of AMD Fraction the cold shoulder and leave it more or less far behind. The example of the Pentium 4 clearly shows that processor speed is more important than faster RAM in this test.

Cinema 4D - Shading ( OpenGL)

    • P4 2.0A/400 - PC 800 *

This test is tightly packed. AMD's advocates can line up between the Pentium 4 with 400 and 533MHz FSB. It is noticeable that the older Northwood can benefit significantly more from an increased processor clock than is the case with the variant with 533MHz FSB.

Cinema 4D - Raytracing

Overall, not much needs to be said about the results of CineBench 4D. The Athlon XP processors all do not do that badly, but here too they have nothing to oppose the performance of a Pentium 4 with 2.4 GHz or more.
