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.

The AMD Ryzen 5 3400G is a quad-core processor from AMD. It clocks its 4 cores with 3.6 GHz, but can increase the clock rate to 3.7 GHz (load on all cores) or even 3.9 GHz (single core load).

It supports Hyper-Threading technology and thus comes to 8 logical processors (4+4). Both the CPU and the iGPU part of the processor can be overclocked. The iGPU in the AMD Ryzen 5 3400G is an AMD Radeon Vega 11 with eleven execution units. The iGPU supports up to 3 screens. Modern video codecs via hardware are no problem with the graphics card, as are simple and also newer games up to Full HD resolution.

The processor supports fast DDR4-2933 working memory, but can also address OC memory with even higher clock rates. Since the AMD Radeon Vega 11 graphics card benefits greatly from fast working memory, we recommend at least the officially supported DDR4-2933 memory, even DDR4-3600 or similar is better. To ensure that the memory bandwidth is sufficient even in newer games, we also recommend running the RAM in dual-channel mode, i.e. using two memory modules instead of just one.

PCIe 3.0 is supported with 16 lines, which is typical for the Zen+ processors for the socket AM4. Modern virtualization features are also available, as well as the possibility to accelerate AES-Ni encryption operations via hardware. This makes it possible to encrypt the operating system drive, for example, without performance losses.

The AMD Ryzen 5 3400G is based on the Zen+ architecture (Picasso), which is the 2nd generation of AMDs Zen CPU design. It is manufactured in 12 nm and already has a fairly high TDP of 65 watts. The AMD Ryzen 5 3400G will be released in Q2/2019 at an introductory price of approximately 165 Euros.
