YOYOTech Water Dragon 940

Cinebench, PCMark & Pov-Ray Results

Cinebench 10
 
Cinebench 10 is a benchmarking tool based on the powerful 3D software Cinema 4D. The suite uses complex renders to guage the performance of the entire PC system in both single-core and multi-core modes. Testing was performed a total of 5 times with the highest and lowest results being omitted and an average created from the remaining 3 results.
 
 
 
PCMark Vantage
 
PCMark Vantage is the latest benchmarking suite from Futuremark. Differing significantly from their 3DMark suites, PCMark performs a series of benchmarks designed to recreate and benchmark scenarios of a PC being used for everyday tasks. Vantage has a Vista only requirement as it actually relies on several different components from the OS in order to run correctly.
 
 
 
POV-Ray
 
POV-Ray is short for the Persistence of Vision Raytracer, a tool for producing high-quality computer graphics. The freely available software suite is bundled with a benchmarking scene that uses many of POV-Ray's internal features to heavily test the abilities of the CPU.
 
 
 
Result Observations
 
Cinebench and POV-Ray re-enforce our theories from the previous page with single-core benchmarks being weighted in favour of the Spartan 300. However, once multi-core benchmarks are performed, the Water Dragon 940 is given an opportunity to claw back some lost ground and leaves the Spartan 300 for dead.

Unfortunately with PCMark Vantage being a recent addition to our testing arsenal, no previous results were available from the testing of the Spartan 300 system. However, comparing the Water Dragon 940's results to various other home-brew systems we've benchmarked in the past, it's scores reasonably well and in-line with a mid-range quad-core Intel based system.

Nice nice.

Though I think people will still prefer the Spartan 300 if they don't care about looks, don't care about a few extra fps and want to save money.

Anyone else agree?
