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 Intel Core i5-10500 published in the second quarter of the year 2020 is a tenth generation processor from Intels Core-i5 series. The processor has 6 physical cores and additionally supports hyperthreading technology, which can be logical from the 6 physical cores 12. This will then run twice as many arithmetic operations at the same time.

The basic clock frequency of the 6 cores is 3.10 gigahertz and the maximum turbo clock frequency at up to 4.50 gigahertz. However, the maximum turbo clock frequency is achieved only during the utilization of a single core, several cores are utilized simply reduces the maximum clock frequency.

Memory modules of type DDR4 are officially supported with a clock rate of up to 2666 megahertz. The maximum memory size, which can be controlled by the 2 memory channels of the Intel Core i5-10500, outputs Intel with 128 gigabytes. Incidentally, the maximum memory bandwidth is 41.6 gigabytes per second.

The integrated graphics unit Intel UHD Graphics 630 has a maximum of 64 gigabytes of video memory and supports the image output on up to 3 screens at the same time. The maximum resolution via a display port is 4096x2304 with 60 Hertz. Another HDMI output is still 4K with a resolution of 4096 x 2160, but the refresh rate is limited to 30 Hertz here.

The basic clock frequency of the Intel HD Graphics 630 is 350 megahertz and the maximum dynamic clock frequency at 1.15 Gigahertz. The graphics unit already released in the fourth quarter 2017 supports DirectX in version 12.0 and the most important codecs can be both decoded in hardware, as well as encoded.

Furthermore, the Intel Core i5-10500 based on Comet-Lake architecture has a 12 megabyte cache.
