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.

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.

Unknown Unknown
In the duel AMD Ryzen 7 5800x against the Intel Core i9-10850k it is again evident that AMD is once again playing in the league of high-end processors previously dominated by Intel. The impressive comeback shows that AMD has not slept.

The AMD Ryzen 7 5800x with a clock frequency of 3.80-4.70 GHz (4.40 GHz on all cores) and 8 cores does not have an integrated graphics solution. The CPU supports DD4-3200 RAM with up to 128 GB.

The Ryzen 7 is manufactured in the Vermeer (Zen 3) architecture in 7nm and supports PCIe version 4.0. Compared to the Intel i9-10850k, the one with a power consumption of 105W is significantly more economical and consumes almost 20% less (TDP PL1).

The Intel Core i9-10850k has a significantly higher maximum clock frequency than the AMD processor. With 3.60-5.20 GHz (Turbo 1 core) and 4.80 GHz, it is the faster of the two processors on paper. With 10 cores, it also has 2 more cores.

An integrated graphics solution of the Intel UHD Graphics 630 is also on board. It has a GPU clock of up to 1.20 GHz. A maximum of 64 GB can be used as GPU memory.
Very few of them will do that and instead rely on a dedicated graphics card, such as the Nvidia RTX 3090, for example.

The benchmarks show the strengths of the individual processors. Since they are both priced roughly on the same level, a clear winner cannot be made out.

The AMD Ryzen 7 5800x can even beat the Intel Core i9-10850k in the single-core benchmarking category, which is otherwise dominated by Intel. And that although the Intel Core-i9 has the higher maximum clock.
The Intel processor is ahead in the multi-core.

Even if the AMD is a bit ahead and certainly has the more modern architecture and has better features, such as PCIe 4.0 and DDR4-3200 support, the purchase here should be tailored to personal needs.
