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.

Blender 2.81 (bmw27)

Blender is a free 3D graphics software for rendering (creating) 3D bodies, which can also be textured and animated in the software. The Blender benchmark creates predefined scenes and measures the time (s) required for the entire scene. The shorter the time required, the better. We selected bmw27 as the benchmark scene.

News and articles for the AMD Ryzen 5 5600X and the AMD Ryzen 7 2700X


There are about 2.5 years between the release of these processors, the AMD Ryzen 5 5600X was released in the fourth quarter of the year, whereas the AMD Ryzen 7 2700X was released in the second quarter of 2018. It is all the more interesting to see how the newer processor from the Ryzen 5 series fares against the older processor from the higher Ryzen 7 series.

At first glance, you might think that the AMD Ryzen 5 5600X will have a hard time, because with its 6 processor cores it has 2 cores less than the AMD Ryzen 7 2700X, which has 8 processor cores. The base clock frequency of both processors is 3.70 gigahertz, but the Ryzen 5 processor can score for the first time at the maximum turbo clock, because here the frequency is 4.60 gigahertz, whereas the Ryzen 7 processor has the maximum Frequency is 4.30 gigahertz. Both processors support Hyper-Threading technology and can be overclocked, so neither has an advantage here.

Before I get to the benchmarks, I have to mention a very important factor, because on the one hand the AMD Ryzen 5 5600X is already manufactured in the 7 nanometer process, whereas the AMD Ryzen 7 2700X is still manufactured in the much larger 12 nanometer process, for For others, the Ryzen 5 processor is based on the Zen 3 architecture (code name Vermeer) and the Ryzen 7 processor is based on the 2 generations older Zen + architecture (code name Pinnacle Ridge).

This improved structure is already noticeable in the single-core benchmarks, because the speed advantage here is around 30%. The AMD Ryzen 7 2700X cannot catch up with this speed advantage even with its 2 additional cores; in the multi-core benchmarks, the AMD Ryzen 5 5600X is still approx. 10% faster.
