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 3.1 Benchmark

In the Blender Benchmark 3.1, the scenes "monster", "junkshop" and "classroom" are rendered and the time required by the system is measured. In our benchmark we test the CPU and not the graphics card. Blender 3.1 was presented as a standalone version in March 2022.

Unknown Unknown
The comparison between the two CPUs AMD Ryzen 7 5800X and AMD Ryzen 7 3800XT is a generation comparison. Because here a CPU based on Zen 2 (AMD Ryzen 7 3800XT) is compared with a CPU of the next Zen 3 architecture (AMD Ryzen 7 5800X). Since the clock frequency of the two processors are relatively similar, you can see the increased raw performance per clock of around 15 percent.

The base frequency of the AMD Ryzen 7 5800X is 3.8 GHz. The processor can increase this clock frequency to up to 4.4 GHz (load on several or all CPU cores) or even 4.7 GHz (single core load) via a turbo mode.

The direct predecessor, the AMD Ryzen 7 3800XT, has similar clock frequencies: the base clock is 4.2 GHz, with turbo mode 4.5 GHz (all cores) or 4.7 GHz (one CPU core). Both desktop processors support simultaneous multi-threading and can process 16 threads in parallel.

Both processors can connect 128 GB of RAM via two memory channels each. The memory correction method ECC is even supported by both processors. However, the mainboard and the main memory must also support the ECC functionality.

The desktop processors neither have an iGPU, i.e. a dedicated graphics card is required to operate the system. Both the AMD Ryzen 7 5800X and the AMD Ryzen 7 3800XT are manufactured in 7 nm, with the newer AMD Ryzen 7 5800X using an improved 7 nm structure.

With a 32 MB level 3 cache, both processors have a fairly large buffer for data. Since AMD rarely updates its sockets, both processors still fit in the AM4 socket and are therefore interchangeable. With 105 watts, the TDP for both processors is in the middle range for desktop processors. If the processors are overclocked, the energy consumption can be significantly higher than the TDP.
