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 Intel Core i5-12400 is a 6-core processor for mainstream applications. In contrast to its bigger brothers, the Intel Core i5-12400 uses a classic CPU core distribution (6x Golden Cove performance cores). The larger expansion stages such as the Intel Core i5-12600K have been given additional efficiency cores by Intel in a hybrid core structure. Unfortunately, the Intel Core i5-12400 does not have these.

Intel has also significantly reduced the TDP for this: while the Intel Core i5-12600K can consume up to 125 watts (even 150 watts for a short time), the Intel Core i5-12400 uses a TDP of only 65 watts. This can be increased to 117 watts over a short period of time.

Nevertheless, the 12th generation of the Intel Core i5-12400 is convincing. Due to the use of the new DDR5 memory standard (officially up to DDR5-4800 is supported) and the production using the "Intel 10" process (comparable to TSMCs 7 nm production, which is currently used in the AMD Ryzen 5000 processors), the chip is tolerable economical and at the same time fast on the road.

The new Alder-Lake S architecture uses the LGA 1700 socket and, in addition to DDR5 RAM, can also connect graphics cards with up to PCIe 5.0 (double the bandwidth compared to the previous 4.0 generation). So far, however, no graphics cards support the new PCIe 5.0 interface. Of course it is backwards compatible.

If desired, the Intel Core i5-12400 can also address the DDR5 RAM faster using the XMP profile. What is new here is the XMP 3.0 profile from Intel, which offers more flexibility when overclocking the main memory. The new Alder-Lake S platform can address up to 128 GB of RAM, and a system with the maximum configuration with 2x 64 GB memory modules achieves a maximum memory bandwidth of 76.8 GB per second.
