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 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.

The Intel Core I5-10600K is a 10th generation of the Intel Core i5 processors a hexagon processor. For the first time, the Core i5 processors with the 10th generation support the hyper-threading technology, which makes in a performance increase of about 30 percent comparable to the 9th generation of the Intel Core i5 processors. The distance to the Intel Core i7 processors is still ensured by increasing the number of core numbers of Intel Core i7 and i9 processors.

Its 6 cores clocks the Intel Core i5-10600K with 4.1 GHz in the base. When utilizing all cores, the CPU can increase the clock frequency in turbo mode up to 4.5 GHz. At load on a core up to 4.8 GHz are possible.

As an internal graphics card (IGPU), the processor has an Intel UHD Graphics 630, which is sufficient for simple games. Sophisticated games should be better played with a dedicated graphics card. Here, u.a. the GeForce RTX 2060, GeForce RTX 2070 or GeForce RTX 2080.

The Intel Core i5-10600K is, like all Intel processors, which have a "k" in the identifier. That is, it has a free multiplier. The desired clock frequency of the processor can be easily set via the BIOS of the mainboard. For high clock frequencies, a better cooling is required.

The Intel Core i5-10600K is part of the group of Comet Lake S processors, which are still manufactured in 14 Nm structural width. However, Intels 14 Nm manufacturing processes are a multi-optimized procedure.

For the Intel Core i5-10600K, as for all Core I processors, the 10th generation of the new mainboard socket LGA 1200 is necessary. This ensures a better and more stable power supply of the processor. The Intel Core i5-10600K has 12 MB Level 3 cache and was presented in the first quarter of Intel. The delivery takes place from the 2nd quarter 2020.
