Benchmarking in 3D Studio Max Continued
By: Sverre Sjøthun, April 29, 2003  Print this article


In the table below, you'll see the round-up of benchmarks results. The Prometeia system ends up with a very impressive second place , only bested by a dual Xeon 2.8b with 2048 MB RAM, 50 seconds ahead of our test system.

All scores in seconds, less is better.

In terms of pure rendering power, the combination of a Prometeia and a single P4 3.06 overclocked to 3.98GHz makes for an incredible price/performance ratio -- half the price of the dual Xeon system on top (starting at $4,300.00 at Boxxtech). Surely, if you would choose to use the test system as a Max machine, you should opt for a different videocard, like the Wildcats or Quadros, SCSI disks if you do a lot of movies, and so on, but this is definitely a viable alternative to a dual Xeon system.
