Cinebench R15 allows to evaluate the performance of a CPU by rendering a photorealistic 3D scene. The scene has 2,000 objects, 300,000 polygons, antialiasing, uses sharp and fuzzy reflections, bright areas, procedural shaders, shadows, etc. The faster the rendering of the scene is created, the more powerful the PC is, with a high number of points.

On this software, there is a difference of 7% in single-core. On the multi-core side, the gap reaches 221%.
