Benchmark Results: Content Creation
Both AMD and Intel would likely agree with us that these CPUs aren’t intended for workstation-oriented applications like 3ds Max. In the event that you do end up on a more mainstream machine rendering an image, though, the older Llano-based parts perform best, followed by Trinity. Core i3-2100 finishes second-to-last, ahead of the single-module A6-5400K.
The same conclusions apply in SolidWorks, though there’s very little separating AMD’s APUs and the Intel Core i3.
