3ds Max 2021 CPU Roundup: Intel vs AMD

Written on July 8, 2020 by Kelly Shipman

The release of 3ds Max 2021, as well as new CPUs from Intel and AMD, it was time for a new round of hardware testing. This was also a great opportunity to begin building a new benchmark suite to test many of the common actions within 3ds Max such as modeling, simulations and rendering. There has been a lot of changes within 3ds Max as well as with CPUs in the years since our last pass, so let's see how Max handles now.
