This new addition to the CineBench testing program updates the code to run in 64-bit mode if the user desires. We are still using the 32-bit Windows here, so not a lot has changed though scores between versions are not comparable.
3D Studio Max 5.1
In both DirectX and OpenGL flavors, this World Bench test goes through a basic 3D editing session and renders the images as well.
This benchmark has been a standard for quite a while in the workstation world and the 8th iteration of it includes newer applications and simulation models.
All of our tests are again showing a strong amount of unity in the performance between the two platforms. One exception is the OpenGL based 3D Studio Max 5.1 test where NVIDIA holds a small, but noticeable 15 second lead.
