CINEBENCH is a real-world cross platform test suite that evaluates your computer’s performance capabilities. 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 as Spider-Man, Star Wars, The Chronicles of Narnia and many more.
CINEBENCH is the perfect tool to compare CPU and graphics performance across various systems and platforms (Windows and Mac OS X). And best of all: It’s completely free.
We wanted to include some overclocking results on this particular page to show scaling when we moved from 2.4 ghz to 2.7 ghz and finally to 3.0ghz.
These are great results for such a modest processor with an impressive jump from 2.4ghz to 2.7ghz. Scaling from 2.7ghz to 3ghz is lower, due to some thermal throttling which takes place under full load.
