View Full Version : Website that gives render performance?

Is there a place I can go that can give me a ballpark render performance for any given system? I don't need absolute accuracy, just something to give me an idea.

The reason I ask is that my college is liquidating their old pentium4 3.4 Ghz systems (for around $50 for the entire system, 160 gig HD, 2 gig ram). The graphics cards are poor, but rendering mainly just concerns the CPU anyways, right?

I've been looking for a cheap system that can essentially act as my 24/7 rendering box so I don't have to hang up my computer if I want to do stuff during the day... but I don't want to shell out for the above mentioned system if my current system (athlon 64 x2 6000) can output more in 8 hours than the pentium4 can output in 24 hours.

In my tests those comparisons are very accurate in rendering performance too.

How does one read the charts?

For instance, I noticed the pentium system in question ranked at around "610" versus my athlon 64 x6000 which ranks at "1647"

Does this mean that the athlon is 2.7 times faster than the pentium 4 (1647 / 610)?

old but was a good place to go back in the days of pentuims and athlons!

fairly accurate with my comparison. change the vs.

Thanks all, based on what I'm seeing performance wise it seems like I can pretty much get the same result with 8 hour overnight renders of my current cpu than 24 hours of the pentium system.
