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.

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.

The AMD Ryzen 9 5950X is a 16-core mainstream desktop processor from AMD, which is manufactured at TSMC in an improved 7 nm process. Thanks to the modern production technology and the high computing power per clock (IPC), the AMD Ryzen 9 5950X sets new records for mainstream processors in many benchmarks. It is based on the new Zen 3 CPU cores (Vermeer) from AMD and was presented in the 4th quarter of 2020.

In addition to higher clock frequencies, AMD was able to further increase the computing power per clock compared to the previous architecture (Zen 2). This is currently even higher than the new Intel Tiger Lake processors. The Intel Tiger Lake processors are based on a new Intel architecture, the older processors still had their origins in the outdated Sandy Lake architecture. Nevertheless, the new Ryzen 5xxx processors are above the new hopes from Intel.

The AMD Ryzen 9 5950X supports the AMD Ryzen 9 5950X with a full 64 MB Level 3 cache. In addition, DDR4 memory up to DDR4-3200 is supported. Per D.O.C.P. Profile or manual overclocking of the main memory, higher frequencies are also possible. As before, the processor connects the RAM to the CPU via two channels; AMD specifies a maximum capacity of 128 GB. PCIe 4.0 devices such as dedicated graphics cards or fast M.2 SSDs can be connected via 20 CPU lines.

Like all Zen desktop processors, the AMD Ryzen 9 5950X does not have integrated graphics (iGPU). AMD has released the AMD Ryzen 9 5950X for overclocking (open multiplier), but not very much experience is available about the clock frequency. Since it is a 16 core processor, one can assume that the maximum clock can only be increased by a few 100 Mhz before the power consumption increases drastically.
