Benchmark Results: Productivity
Another threaded test, another sweeping victory for the Odachi’s quad-core CPU. Eurocom scores another second-place finish, but it takes almost twice as long to finish our virus-scanning benchmark.
Same story here. Cinema 4D—the application on which CineBench is based—is able to take advantage of all four cores and finish our rendering job in under two minutes. Second-place Eurocom needs about three and a half minutes for the same task, and ASUS’ T9400 takes more than four minutes to get the job done.
Threading helps the Core 2 Quad Q9650 score its third consecutive win in WinRAR. And again, the Core 2 Extreme X9100 garners Eurocom’s Montebello another second-place finish, followed by Alienware’s m17x and ASUS’ G71.
Killer Notebooks scores here as well, but by a negligible margin since WinZIP is not optimized for its four cores. As such, the field finishes pretty close together, with the Montebello taking just two seconds longer to finish its compression job.
The Killer Notebooks and Eurocom systems steal the show in Photoshop, while ASUS’ G71 and Alienware’s m17x take third and fourth place, respectively.
