POV-Ray and CineBench
POV-Ray 3.7 Beta 20b
POV-Ray is one of the staple benchmarks for rendering, and their latest revision, 3.7, adds a lot of multi-threading optimizations.
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.
In our two professional rendering tests the QX6850 is the easy winner again as the four cores are fully utilized in these multi-threaded applications.
