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.

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.

Most popular processors in the first half of 2022
Posted by Stefan on 2022-07-05
In the past we had repeatedly written about our most popular processors. Since this format was quiet popular, I would like to continue this today and introduce you the most popular processors in the first half of 2022.

With more than 2 million page views per month, CPU-Monkey is one of the biggest comparison sites for processors and is currently available in 16 languages.
Apple M2 Pro with more CPU cores and production in 3 nm ?
Posted by Stefan on 2022-06-28
After Apple surprisingly presented the normal Apple M2 processor as the first successor to the Apple M1 already in June 2022, the Apple M2 Pro and the Apple M2 Max may follow in autumn. The difference in performance compared to the basic version could be even greater this time and range from 25 to 40 percent.

In this article we describe how Apple could realize this and why the price should also go up.
AMD Ryzen 5 7600X and AMD Ryzen 7 7800X are coming in September
Posted by Stefan on 2022-06-20
After we published a performance assessment of the AMD Ryzen 9 7950X last week, the well-known AMD leaker Greymon55 has now posted more informations via Twitter.

He predicts the first four models of the new Zen 4 desktop generation, which AMD would like to present at the end of 2022. There is also an alleged release date of September 15, 2022.
AMD Ryzen 9 7950X - Cinebench R23 Benchmark projection
Posted by Stefan on 2022-06-10
We give you a preview of AMD's new Zen 4 desktop processors and calculate the performance of the AMD Ryzen 9 7950X top model for the new AM5 socket. The performance data and other technical details come directly from the press kit that AMD released as part of its Financial Analyst Day on June 9, 2022.

Up to 15 percent more single-core performance and 35 percent more multi-core performance of the 16-core model are realistic !
Apple M2 vs Apple M1 - What are the differences?
Posted by Stefan on 2022-06-09
During WWDC 2022 on June 6th, 2022 Apple surprisingly presented its new Apple M2 processor. This will initially be installed in a completely revised Apple MacBook Air with 13.6 inches, a even thinner form factor and new colors. Apple also updated the already known (old) Apple MacBook Pro 13.3 with touch bar.

Many leakers had counted on Apple not presenting its new second-generation M processor until the fall. But things turned out differently. And there is very likely a reason for that: the improvements in the Apple M2 are limited compared to the predecessor.

Can you compare the Apple M1 with the AMD Ryzen 7 5800X? Of course you can do everything and it is quite interesting how the Apple M1, with a TDP of only 15 watts, performs against the AMD Ryzen 7 5800X, which has a TDP of 105 watts.

The Apple M1 is already manufactured using the 5 nanometer process, while the AMD Ryzen 7 5800X is still manufactured using the slightly larger 7 nanometer process. Both processors hit the market in the fourth quarter of 2020. The Apple M1 is only used in in-house products (when introduced in the MacBook Pro and MacMini). The AMD Ryzen 7 5800X is based on the AM4 socket and can therefore be freely installed on any motherboard with this socket.

Both processors have 8 cores, the Apple M1 is based on a big.LITTLE core architecture. In this case, that means that 4 high-performance cores are combined with 4 energy-saving cores. That makes the processor extremely efficient. The AMD Ryzen 7 5800X, on the other hand, is based on a standard architecture with 8 identical cores. In addition, the AMD Ryzen 7 5800X also supports Hyper-Threading technology and it can also be overclocked.

The two processors are on par in the single core benchmarks. Depending on the benchmark, the Apple M1 and the AMD Ryzen 7 5800X are a few percentage points ahead. In the multi-core benchmarks, the AMD Ryzen 7 5800X is of course clearly ahead. Here the 8 identical cores and the existing hyperthreading show their performance.

Only the Apple M1 has an internal graphics unit and this is also very powerful for an internal graphics unit. It achieves an FP32 computing line of 2600 GigaFLOPS.

There is a clear difference in the main memory. A maximum of 16 gigabytes of RAM can be operated with the Apple M1, whereas the AMD Ryzen 7 5800X supports operation of up to 128 gigabytes.
