Cinebench r20

So for some odd reason Maxon decided that the only location for downloading the Windows version of the new r20 release is via the Windows Store, sorry but homey don't do dat crap

Anybody seen alternative downloads ?

Maxon Computer GmBh will only allow the download of Cinebench R20 through UWP (Microsoft Store). Though we feel that this is a community tool which belongs in the public domain we obviously need to respect what the publisher deems appropriate for them. It’s unfortunate, but it is what it is.


Well, shite.

Indeed, but I wonder how many instructions per clock my old Amiga 500 with a bog standard 68K cpu has

I don't know, but it's probably close to what my budget AMD can muster

The fastest benchmark I could find on R20 is almost 25x faster than mine, but the single-core benchmarks are 2.5x at best, and that's comparing the new i9-9900K with quad-channel DDR4 to my 5-year old A10-7700K with dual-channel DDR3.

It seems we're almost at the end of the road as far as single-core performance goes.

I'm thinking the same on single core IPC, until there is either a breakthru with x86 architecture or there is a fundamental change in how the OS is structured.

I often wonder what would have happened if CBM had survived and made their own *nix based Amiga OS, akin to what Apple did to change over from 68k/PPC to x86.

That's not strictly true, the first few versions of OS X were PPC only.

There you go, nice to know.

That would indicate that they were seeing the writing on the wall and needed to move away from the PPC arch to something more available and cheaper.

Yeah that's loading it as a 'Store' app within Windows 10 (which is not what you wanted )
