Software 3D renderers and their atypical code make-up can be found in digital content creation apps, offline renderers, 3D simulators and the like. FP-heavy, more so than any other type of common code, these tests give the multiple FPUs of modern processors a real hammering. These particular tests are also multi-threaded.

The Cinema 4D engine, although in our tests its from the R8 release in 2003, is used in more places than you'd think, from film rendering to game development toolchains.

Dual-core is a big win, nearly doubling the score on AMD at the same CPU frequency. 666 is the fastest score from a single CPU we've yet seen here, Opteron and Xeon included. Much the same is seen with Kribibench. Dual-core is a large win, offering almost 2x the speed of a single-core chip at the same frequency, and the 955XE is faster than FX-60 in this particular test.

picCOLOR is our image analysis benchmark and uses a range of integer and FP calculations, often using the SIMD logic, to process image data for a wide range of applications.

6.15 is the fastest single CPU score we've seen with this build of picCOLOR, FX-60 besting X2 4800+ by the expected margin.
