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.

The AMD FX-6300 is a processor with 6 cores from AMDs FX processor series. The 6 physical cores have a standard clock of 3.50 gigahertz. In turbo mode, the clock can be automatically increased up to 4.10 gigahertz. The AMD FX-6300 doesnt support hyperthreading, but you can overclock it thanks to the free multiplier. The AMD FX-6300 is based on the Vishera design. The CPU is manufactured in 32 nm.

If you consider overclocking, you have to ensure sufficient cooling, otherwise it can lead to damages on the processor. The AMD FX-6300 supports two working memory modules of the DDR3-1866 standard. The memory bandwidth doubles in dual-channel mode with two modules. Therefore, you should use two modules instead of just one if possible. Up to 32 GB of working memory is supported. The memorys ECC error correction function is not or only partially supported.

The TDP of the AMD FX-6300 is 95 watts, whereby AMD specifies a maximum Tjunction of only 70.5 °C. The AES-Ni encryption functions via hardware are supported. Virtualization software can fall back on the AMD-V features. Thanks to the 6 cores, the AMD FX-6300 is suitable for virtualizing smaller environments.

The AMD FX-6300 was released in the fourth quarter of 2012 at an introductory price of 90 Euros. Due to the good price-performance ratio, the processor is one of the most popular AMD FX processors.

The processor has an 8 megabyte Level 3 cache. An internal graphics unit is not available, so you cant avoid installing a dedicated graphics card. This is a shame especially for smaller systems where you only need a very low graphics performance and where an external graphics card is actually overkill.


Leaderboards

In our leaderboards, we have clearly compiled the best processors for specific categories for you. The leaderboards are always up to date and are regularly updated by us. The best processors are selected according to popularity and speed in benchmarks as well as the price-performance ratio.
