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.

Monero Hashrate kH/s

The crypto currency Monero has been using the RandomX algorithm since November 2019. This PoW (proof of work) algorithm can only efficiently be calculated using a processor (CPU) or a graphics card (GPU). The CryptoNight algorithm was used for Monero until November 2019, but it could be calculated using ASICs. RandomX benefits from a high number of CPU cores, cache and a fast connection of the memory via as many memory channels as possible. Tested with XMRig v6.x under the operation system HiveOS.

To trade Monero you can register with the crypto broker Kraken.com. We've been customers there for a few years now and have been very satisfied so far.

News and articles for the AMD Ryzen 5 5600G and the Intel Core i5-11400


Not only did these two desktop processors both launch in 2021, they are also built very similarly. Both processors have 6 cores and support Hyperthreading, giving you 12 threads at your disposal. At 3.90 gigahertz, the base clock of the AMD Ryzen 5 5600G is significantly higher than that of the Intel Core i5-11400, where it is 2.60 gigahertz. The maximum turbo clock is identical, this is 4.40 gigahertz for both. The AMD Ryzen 5 5600G can also be overclocked, which is not possible with the Intel Core i5-11400.

The performance of the two processors is also quite similar, but according to our benchmarks, the AMD Ryzen 5 5600G is almost 10 percent faster than the Intel Core i5-11400.

An internal graphics unit is used in both processors. The AMD Ryzen 5 5600G is equipped with the AMD Radeon 7 Graphics (Renoir). This iGPU has a fixed clock frequency of 1.90 gigahertz and has 7 execution units with a total of 448 shader units. The Intel UHD Graphics 730 is integrated in the Intel Core i5-11400, which clocks at up to 1.30 gigahertz and has 24 execution units with a total of 192 shader units.

Based on the P32 processing power (single precision), one can see that the AMD graphics is significantly faster than the iGPU of the Intel processor. The AMD Radeon Graphics 7 achieves 1702 GigaFLOPS here, while the Intel UHD Graphics 730 achieves just 499 GigaFLOPS.

Both processors support DDR4-3200 type RAM with their 2 memory channels. The AMD Ryzen 5 5600G can run a maximum of 64 gigabytes of RAM, while the Intel Core i5-11400 supports twice the amount of RAM with 128 gigabytes. ECC memory, i.e. memory with automatic error correction, is not supported by the two processors.

The AMD Ryzen 5 5600G has 24 PCIe lines (type 3.0) and the Intel Core i5-11400 has 20 PCIe lines (type 4.0) for connecting a dedicated graphics card or other expansion cards.
