Cinema 4D rendering
Cinema 4D's rendering engine does a very nice job of distributing the load across multiple processors, as the Task Manager graph shows.

Impressively, the X2 4800+ edges out the Pentium XE 840 in Cinema 4D's renderer, traditionally something of an Intel stronghold in our benchmark suite. The 4200+ follows suit, outpacing the Pentium D 840. As with all of the rendering tests, the 4200+ also positively obliterates its more expensive single-core peers like the Athlon 64 FX-55 and the P4 Extreme Edition 3.73GHz.

Cinebench's shading tests are all single threaded, and it shows. The X2s perform respectably but are nothing special here.
