Cinebench 9.5 released

Maxon announced Cinebench 9.5, now a Universal binary. Cinebench is a free benchmarking tool based on Maxon's Cinema 4D program, and includes render tasks that test the performance of up to 16 multiprocessors on the same computer as well as software-only shading tests and OpenGL shading tests on large numbers of animated polygons. Cinebench especially measures a system's CPU and the OpenGL capabilities of its graphics card-- during the testing procedure, all relevant data is ascertained with which the performance of different computers can subsequently be compared, regrardless of operating system. The database functionality and simple export allow for easy statistical data collection, acording to the company, and is used by hardware manufacturers such as Intel, AMD, and Apple to compare computer performance.
