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.

The evolution of AMD Ryzen processors
Posted by Stefan on 2022-09-06
The AMD Ryzen processors are designed for the mid to high-end range and are grouped into the Ryzen 3, Ryzen 5, Ryzen 7 and Ryzen 9 classes. AMD follows the market leader Intel, which groups its Core i series (Intel Core i3, Core i5, Core i7 and Core i9) identically.

The AMD Ryzen processors were first introduced by AMD in Q1 2017. They are the successor to the not particularly successful AMD Bulldozer processors. The latter were manufactured using an outdated manufacturing process and could not keep up with the competing products from Intel. AMD lost a large portion of its desktop processor market share during this period.

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 !

A direct comparison between the Intel Core i7-11700K and the AMD Ryzen 7 5800X only makes it clear how close the two competitors AMD and Intel are currently. In the case of the Intel Core i7-11700K, Intel was able to significantly increase the raw performance per clock, but has not yet reached the IPC that AMD achieves with Zen 3 technology. Therefore, Intel gave the Intel Core i7-11700K a 300 to 400 MHz higher clock to catch up with the AMD Ryzen 7 5800X.

The Intel Core i7-11700K does this quite well. The 8-core processor is only slightly behind the AMD Ryzen 7 5800X in benchmarks. Intel's new Rocket Lake architecture is used in the Intel Core i7-11700K, which is actually a backport from 10 nm to 14 nm. Intel is still plagued by production problems in 10 nm manufacturing. Since Zen 2, AMD no longer relies on in-house production at Globalfoundries, but now has its processors manufactured by TSMC in Taiwan. The Zen 3 processors are manufactured in 7 nm, but TSMC already has a 5 nm node, which, however, has been completely reserved by Apple. Only AMD's Zen 4 processors are also manufactured at TSMC in 5 nm.

Since both processors have 8 CPU cores and support Hyper-Threading or Simultaneous Multi-Threading, 16 threads can be processed in parallel by the CPUs. Intel is limited to 8 cores at Rocket Lake, while AMD has significantly larger expansion levels on offer with the AMD Ryzen 9 5900X (12 cores, 24 threads) and the AMD Ryzen 9 5950X (16 cores, 32 threads).

The rivals are also very similar when it comes to RAM: 128 GB DDR4-3200 memory in two memory channels (max. 4 modules) are supported. Due to the smaller manufacturing density, AMD can give the AMD Ryzen 7 5800X 32 MB Level 3 cache, while the Intel Core i7-11700K has to get by with 16 MB.
