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 9 3900X is a 12-core processor and uses the new AMD ZEN 2 technology and is manufactured in 7 nm. The processor has 64 MB L3 cache and fits into the AM4 socket from AMD.

Its base clock frequency is 3.80 GHz, but the processor can accelerate one core up to 4.6 GHz. If all 12 cores are loaded, it is still enough for 4.2 GHz. Thanks to the hyperthreading technology, which can address each core of the processor twice per clock, it offers the operating system 24 logical cores.

Like all current AMD ZEN processors, the AMD Ryzen 9 3900X can also be overclocked. Then significantly higher clock rates are possible. For overclocking, however, a sufficiently dimensioned air cooler such as the be quiet! Dark Rock 4 Pro is recommended. An AIO water cooling system such as the CORSAIR Hydro Series H150i is also well suited for this. The AMD Ryzen 9 3900X is classified in the 105 watt TDP class.

The memory controller of the AMD Ryzen 9 3900X has two channels and officially supports RAM up to the DDR4-3200 specification. With a suitable XMP memory profile, however, significantly higher clock rates can also be achieved very easily. The so-called memory timings are particularly important here. These determine in what time (in nanoseconds) the main memory can be read or written.

As one of the very first processors, the AMD Ryzen 9 3900X supports the PCIe 4.0 standard with up to 16 lines. This doubles the maximum speed with which graphics cards and fast SSDs can be connected. This requires at least one mainboard with a Z570 chipset, the older chipsets only support the previous PCIe 3.0 standard.

Modern virtualization functions (AMD-V, SEV) are supported by this processor.
