Blender 3.1 Benchmark

In the Blender Benchmark 3.1, the scenes "monster", "junkshop" and "classroom" are rendered and the time required by the system is measured. In our benchmark we test the CPU and not the graphics card. Blender 3.1 was presented as a standalone version in March 2022.

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.

Cinebench R11.5, 64bit (Multi-Core)

Cinebench 11.5 is based on the Cinema 4D Suite, a software that is popular to generate forms and other stuff in 3D. The multi-core test involves all CPU cores and taks a big advantage of hyperthreading.

The AMD Ryzen 5 2600 processor has 6 CPU cores and is based on AMDs optimized Zen+ architecture (Pinnacle Ridge). Its base clock is 3.4 GHz, and the processor can clock all cores up to 3.7 GHz as needed. The maximum clock rate under single-core load is 3.9 GHz.

Hyper-Threading technology allows the processor to report 12 logical processors to the operating system. Hyper-Threading uses gaps in the sequence of instruction chains and fills them up in an optimized way. Thus, the performance can be increased enormously depending on the application.

The AMD Ryzen 5 2600 is a popular gaming processor because it offers an excellent price-performance ratio. The processors high clock rates are also relatively useful in games, because many games still do not scale well with the number of cores. Overclockers will also get their moneys worth with the AMD Ryzen 5 2600, because the processor can be easily overclocked thanks to a free multiplier. It is also very fast (assuming sufficient cooling).

Working memory is supported up to DDR4-2933, and significantly higher clock rates of the memory are also possible in OC mode. It has 2 memory channels and therefore supports dual-channel mode, in which the memory bandwidth is doubled. The memory error correction ECC is supported by the AMD Ryzen 5 2600, but the motherboard must then also support the ECC correction. Since ECC is still not very common in the private sector, many motherboard manufacturers neglect ECC support.

The AMD Ryzen 5 2600 fits into the AM4 socket and has 16 MB Level 3 cache. Its TDP is listed at 65 watts. This can also be exceeded permanently in Turbo mode. If the processor is overclocked, the TDP is also significantly higher than the 65 watts.

The AMD Ryzen 5 2600 was introduced in the 2nd quarter of 2018 at a price of just under 200 Euros.
