It's a real-world test suite that assesses your computer's performace capabilities. MAXON CINEBENCH is based on MAXON's award winning 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 and Spiderman, Star Wars, The Chronicles of Narnia and many more.

MAXON CINEBENCH runs several tests on your computer to measure the performance of the main processor and the graphics card under real world circumstances. The benchmark application makes use of up to 16 CPUs or CPU cores and is available for Windows (32- and 64-Bit) and Macintosh (PPC- and Intel-based).

The resulting values among different Operating Systems are 100% comparable and therefore very useful with regard to purchasing decision-making. It can also be used as a marketing tool for hardware vendors or simply to compare hardware among colleagues or friends.

How does MAXON CINEBENCH work?

The test procedure consists of two main components: The first test sequence is dedicated to the computer's main processor. A 3D scene file is used to render a photo reaslistic image. The scene makes use of various CPU-intensive features such as reflection, ambient occlusion, area lights and procedural shaders. In the first run, the benchmark only uses one CPU (or CPU core), to ascertain a reference value. On machines that have multiple CPUs or CPU cores, and also on those who simulate multiple CPUs (via HyperThreading or similar technolgies), MAXON CINEBENCH will run a second test using all available CPU power.

The second test measures the performance of the graphics card and is run inside the 3D editor window. The project file used can test all graphics cards that support the OpenGL standard. In this scene, only the camera was animated. This scene places medium to low demands on graphics cards and tests the maximum speed with which the scene can be properly displayed.

Who should use MAXON CINEBENCH?

There is a wide range of applications for a real world benchmarking tool like MAXON CINEBENCH. Anyone who needs to compare the performance of computer hardware should put MAXON CINEBENCH into his or her tool box. Contrary to abstract benchmarks, which only test specific functions of CPUs or GPUs, a real world benchmark applies a user's common tasks to measure a system's performance.

The results are ideal for use by companies or individuals for making purchasing decisions. Trade magazines or hardware related websites are also welcome to add MAXON CINEBENCH to their array of testing procedures.

my score but i would like to some quad scores
