Soyo CK8 Dragon Plus Review - Adobe After Effects and POV-Ray
(Page 4 of 7 )
Adobe After Effects
There are two parts to this benchmark. The first computation is mainly CPU based, while the second is more system oriented. For more information, please go to Media Motion. Thanks to Adobe for the test version of After Effects 6.0 Professional used in this review. As can be seen, the P4 system is still the one to be using for multi-threaded media applications like AE. However, the Soyo nForce3 board does take a bit of time off of the one posted by the Via K8T800 based Albatron.
The CK8 came out victorious in this test. POV-Ray is a raytracing program, used for creating 3 dimensional images, such as this one:
Rendering takes a lot of processing power, as well as memory throughput, since the files can be quite large depending on the options and sizes chosen. For this test, I used POV-Ray v3.5 and the included benchmark test v1.02. One of the potential reasons for the CK8's quicker time is that Soyo includes a bit of "factory" overclocking. Instead of running at the standard 200MHz for the HT bus (which the processor's internal clock is multiplied by), the crystal instead drives the clock at 205MHz. No matter what setting you choose, the clock is always skewed ahead.
