Comparing 3D Rendering Performance Using the Cinema 4D Mountainvista Scene Workload

Published: 08/28/2018, Last Updated: 08/27/2018

The Intel® Core™ i9 7980XE Extreme Edition processor is the highest performing processor from Intel to date for 3D mega tasking. To showcase its extreme processing capabilities, Intel teamed with MAXON* Cinema 4D designer Marc Potocnik, CEO of German animation studio renderbaron, to develop the Cinema 4D Mountainvista Scene Workload.

Tests showed significant performance increases can be gained by running the Cinema 4D Mountainvista Scene Workload on the 18-core Intel Core i9 7980XE Extreme Edition processor versus a previous-generation 4-core Intel® processor.

This white paper demonstrates how 3D designers can bring additional performance to their workstations with the Intel Core i9 7980XE Extreme Edition processor.

Product and Performance Information


Intel's compilers may or may not optimize to the same degree for non-Intel microprocessors for optimizations that are not unique to Intel microprocessors. These optimizations include SSE2, SSE3, and SSSE3 instruction sets and other optimizations. Intel does not guarantee the availability, functionality, or effectiveness of any optimization on microprocessors not manufactured by Intel. Microprocessor-dependent optimizations in this product are intended for use with Intel microprocessors. Certain optimizations not specific to Intel microarchitecture are reserved for Intel microprocessors. Please refer to the applicable product User and Reference Guides for more information regarding the specific instruction sets covered by this notice.
