Rendering and Scientific

CineBench 11.5

This rendering benchmark based off of the Cinema 4D engine is a terrific indicator for multi-threaded processing.

If we first look at the single threaded results, you'll see that the new Jaguar core running at 1.5 GHz is about 75% slower than the Ivy Bridge core running at 1.9 GHz or so.  Powering on all the cores (two with HyperThreading on the 3227U, four on the A4-5000) we see the difference in performance is only 21% – the advantage of four cores versus two cores with HT. 

POV-Ray 3.7

POV-Ray has long been the poster child for multi-threaded processing and rendering.


Another good showing for the A4-5000 here though of course it is slower than the Core i3-2105 desktop part.

Euler 3D Fluid Dynamics

This fluid dynamics simulation is very CPU and memory intensive.  From the benchmark source website:

The benchmark testcase is the AGARD 445.6 aeroelastic test wing. The wing uses a NACA 65A004 airfoil section and has a panel aspect ratio of 1.65, a taper ratio of 0.66, and a 45 degree quarter-chord sweep angle. This AGARD wing was tested at the NASA Langley Research Center in the 16-foot Transonic Dynamics Tunnel and is a standard aeroelastic test case used for validation of unsteady, compressible CFD codes. Figure 1 shows the CFD predicted Mach contours for a freestream Mach number of 0.960.

The benchmark CFD grid contains 1.23 million tetrahedral elements and 223 thousand nodes. The benchmark executable advances the Mach 0.50 AGARD flow solution. Our benchmark score is reported as a CFD cycle frequency in Hertz.

The Euler3D fluid dynamics testing results show good scaling from 1 to 2 to 4 threads of processing (81% and 61% jumps respectively) on the Kabini / Jaguar architecture.
