The most frequently used 3D rendering program yields disappointing results: The dual Xeon 3.06 with 1 MB L3 cache does not produce any advantage. Compared to the "single" Pentium 4 with 3.2 GHz, the two dual Xeons are in the lead with an increase that is just shy of 70 percent.

The renowned Cinema 4D XL benchmark, in which a 3D image is rendered in 1280 x 1024 x 24 resolution, delivers similar results. In this case again, all four virtual mobile processors are used at the same time. Compared to the 3.2 GHz P4, a speed advantage of 80 percent is the result. However, the additional L3 cache again shows no effect.
