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 Ryzen 9 5900HX is an 8-core mobile processor from AMD. Using SMT, it can process up to 16 threads simultaneously. Its clock frequency is 3.3 GHz in the base. The processor can increase this to 4.2 GHz or even 4.6 GHz when using only one CPU core. This results in good benchmark values. The Zen 3 CPU technology has a 15 to 20 percent higher raw performance per clock than the previous architecture.

An AMD Radeon 8 Graphics (Renoir) is used as the internal graphics (iGPU). This has 8 execution units and 512 shaders. The graphics frequency is up to 1.9 GHz, which results in a maximum raw FP32 performance of almost 2 TFLOPS.

The AMD Ryzen 9 5900HX is based on AMDs Cezanne APU design, which combines Zen 3 CPU cores with an AMD Radeon Vega. The "normal" Ryzen desktop processors do not have an iGPU. With 16 MB level 3 cache, the AMD Ryzen 9 5900HX is equipped with twice as much cache compared to the previous generation "Renoir".

The AMD Ryzen 9 5900HX can connect up to 64 GB DDR4-3200 / LPDDR4-4266 in a maximum of two memory channels. Since the graphics card also benefits from this, as part of the main memory is used as graphics memory, it is advisable to use the fastest possible main memory in 2 memory channels (dual-channel mode).

The AMD Ryzen 9 5900HX has a TDP of 45 watts, but can be configured to 54 watts in order to provide its performance stably over a longer period of time. However, this requires a good cooling solution for the notebook. By using the 7 nm TSMC production, the processor is still sufficiently efficient despite the high clock frequencies. As a socket, AMD uses the "FP6", in which the processor is soldered to the notebooks mainboard.
