Page 10 - Benchmark: SuperPI 1M, Cinebench R11.5
Super PI is a computer program that calculates pi to a specified number of digits after the decimal point - up to a maximum of 32 million. It uses Gauss-Legendre algorithm and is a Windows port of the program used by Yasumasa Kanada in 1995 to compute Pi to 2^32 digits.
Super Pi is used by many overclockers to test the performance and stability of their computers. In the overclocking community, the standard program provides a benchmark for enthusiasts to compare "world record" pi calculation times and demonstrate their overclocking abilities. The program can also be used to test the stability of a certain overclock speed. If a computer is able to calculate PI to the 32 millionth place after the decimal without mistake, it is considered to be moderately stable in terms of RAM and CPU. However, longer tests with other CPU/RAM intensive calculation programs will run for hours instead of minutes and may better stress system stability. While Super Pi is not the fastest program for calculating Pi, it remains very popular in the hardware and overclocking communities.

In our SuperPi 1M test, it is quite clear that the AMD eOntario T56N has higher FPU power compared to the Intel Atom D525, although both scores are still inadequate compared to most modern processors (For example, see our Intel Core i5-2500K Sandy Bridge review). Although the 30s difference is impressive, these processors are just not meant for this type of work.
About Cinebench R11.5
CINEBENCH is a real-world cross platform test suite that evaluates your computer's performance capabilities. CINEBENCH is based on MAXON's award-winning animation software CINEMA 4D, which is used extensively by studios and production houses worldwide for 3D content creation. MAXON software has been used in blockbuster movies such as Spider-Man, Star Wars, The Chronicles of Narnia and many more.
CINEBENCH is the perfect tool to compare CPU and graphics performance across various systems and platforms (Windows and Mac OS X).

Cinebench gives a different take on graphics performance compared to our previous benchmarks. Surprisingly, even with Hyper-Threading, CPU performance of the AMD eOntario T56N is actually 0.02 points better than the Intel Atom D525. However, in terms of the OpenGL test, the AMD Radeon HD 6310 was almost a full point ahead. Although the score is quite admirable for an IGP, OpenGL rendering is not something most people would do using integrated graphics on a mITX board.
