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.

Unknown Unknown

In the duel between the Intel Core i7-10700F and its big brother, the Intel Core i7-10700k, the differences are mainly shown in the details. The processors designed for high-end gaming systems are, as you can see from the name, very closely related.

The Intel Core i7-10700F has a slightly lower clock rate than the K model. The structurally identical Comet Lake architecture is not fully exploited here. With a clock rate of 2.90 - 4.80 GHz (1 core) and 4.60 GHz on all cores, the clock frequency is almost 1 GHz below the Core i7-10700k, especially at the minimum clock.

Both CPUs have 8 cores. The Core i7-10700F does not have its own graphics card.
Due to the lower clock rates, the power consumption of 65W is well below the level of its big brother (125W).

The more powerful Intel Core i7-10700k clocks in the frequency range of 3.80 - 5.10 GHz (1 core).
All cores offer a maximum turbo of 4.90 GHz, which is more than the maximum clock rate of the i7-10700F. Compared to its smaller brother, however, like every Intel K model, it can be overclocked by default.

The processor also has an integrated graphics solution. The Intel UHD Graphics 630 graphic is theoretically sufficient to do everyday work. Because this is a powerful gaming CPU, the use of a dedicated graphics card, such as the Nvidia RTX 3090, is mandatory in most cases.

In the benchmark comparison, the i7-10700k is ahead of the i7-10700F. The lead is perhaps smaller than expected. While the K model wins the race with a lead of up to 9% in individual benchmarks, the difference in the Geekbench 5 multi-core benchmark, for example, is just 1%.

So it is up to everyone how exactly they want to use the CPU. The overall configuration of the system is certainly important here. With the Intel Core i7-10700k, a good coordination of the PC components, especially the CPU fan, is important.
