V-Ray CPU-Render Benchmark

V-Ray is a 3D rendering software from the manufacturer Chaos for designers and artists. Unlike many other render engines, V-Ray is capable of so-called hybrid rendering, in which the CPU and GPU work together at the same time.

However, the CPU benchmark we used (CPU Render Mode) only uses the system's processor. The working memory used plays a major role in the V-Ray benchmark. For our benchmarks we use the fastest RAM standard approved by the manufacturer (without overclocking).

Due to the high compatibility of V-Ray (including Autodesk 3ds Max, Maya, Cinema 4D, SketchUp, Unreal Engine and Blender), it is a frequently used software. With V-Ray, for example, photorealistic images can be rendered that laypeople cannot distinguish from normal photos.

This comparison between the AMD Ryzen 5 5500U and the Intel Core i5-10210U is about 2 processors from the mobile sector, i.e. CPUs that are mainly used in notebooks / laptops.

The AMD Ryzen 5 5500U came out in Q1 2021, making it significantly newer than the Intel Core i5-10210U that was released in Q3 2019. The AMD Ryzen 5 5500U is based on the Lucienne architecture and is manufactured using the 7-nanometer process. The Intel Core i5-10210U comes from the tenth generation of the Core i series and is based on the Comet Lake U architecture, which is manufactured using the 14-nanometer process.

The AMD Ryzen 5 5500U has 6 cores and supports Hyperthreading, which gives it 12 threads. The maximum clock frequency of the cores is 4.00 gigahertz. The Intel Core i5-10210U only has 4 cores, but also supports Hyperthreading, which means that up to 8 Theras can be used here. The maximum clock frequency of the Intel processor at 4.20 gigahertz is slightly higher than that of the AMD processor.

According to our benchmarks, the AMD Ryzen 5 5500U is about 10 percent faster with a single core load and about 40 percent faster with a load of all cores than the Intel Core i5-10210U.

Both processors have an internal graphics unit. In the AMD Ryzen 5 5500U, the AMD Radeon 7 Graphics (Renoir) is used, this graphics unit clocks at 1.80 gigahertz and achieves an FP32 computing power of 1612 GigaFLOPS. The Intel UHD Graphics (Comet Lake) is used in the Intel Core i5-10210U. This graphics unit clocks at up to 1.10 Gigahertz and achieves a much lower FP32 computing power of 422 GigaFLOPS.

Both processors each have 2 memory channels. The AMD Ryzen 5 5500U is thus able to control up to 32 gigabytes of DDR4-3200 RAM. The Intel Core i5-10210U can even operate up to 64 gigabytes of RAM. The following types are supported here: DDR4-2666, LPDDR3-2133, LPDDR4-2933.
