Maxon Upgrades Cinebench CPU Tester
Maxon, the developer of professional 3D modelling, animation, and rendering solutions, has announced the availability of Cinebench Release 20, a modernised version of its industry-standard, cross-platform tool to benchmark computer hardware capabilities. Cinebench R20 leverages the same powerful 3D engine in Cinema 4D Release 20 to evaluate CPU rendering performance. It is offered free-of-charge.
Cinebench uses advanced algorithms to generate a three-dimensional scene on a computer. Cinebench scores are used by system administrators to help make purchase decisions, , manufacturers to optimize their latest products, as well as end users to evaluate individual systems.
Cinebench R20 features include:
- Cinebench R20 uses a much larger and more complex test scene than R15 requiring about 8x the computational power and 4x the memory needed to render it.
- Cinebench R20 incorporates the latest rendering architectures, including integration of Intel’s Embree raytracing technology and advanced features on modern CPUs from AMD and Intel that allow users to render the same scene on the same hardware twice as fast as previously.
- Cinebench R20 provides benchmarks for current and next generation CPUs to test if a machine runs stable on a high CPU load, if the cooling solution of a computer is sufficient for longer running tasks, and if a machine is able to handle demanding real-life 3D tasks.
