Page 9 - Benchmark: SuperPI 1M, Cinebench R23
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.

We have always included SuperPi in our benchmark results, because it is a quick and dirty run that always proves to be interesting. It is neither the fastest way to calculate Pi nor is it the most challenging. But being an enthusiast at heart, this program has always provided interesting results for showing off your overclocking prowess on your favorite online platform. This time around, all of the tested memory provided results of very similar times, with the Lexar Hades RGB DDR4-3600 2x16GB being the fastest. This is a pretty uninteresting endpoint, however, and may possibly just show the heavier reliance on the CPU rather than the memory in this benchmark.
About Cinebench R23
Cinebench is a real-world cross-platform test suite that evaluates your computer's hardware capabilities. Improvements to Cinebench Release 23 reflect the overall advancements to CPU and rendering technology in recent years, providing a more accurate measurement of Cinema 4D's ability to take advantage of multiple CPU cores and modern processor features available to the average user. Best of all: It's free.

Cinebench R23 is Maxon's latest benchmark to measure CPU rendering performance. With this version, Cinebench split up their single and multi-core tests. Obviously, having a fast processor that performs well in IPC and with multiple threads will play a significant role in determining these scores, but memory still affects these results. As you can see in our charts above, the overall variance between the two tested RAM was inconsequential, with less than 0.5% of difference.
