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 i5-12400F is a 6-core processor based on the current Intel Alder Lake architecture. This architecture is actually based on a hybrid structure of the CPU cores, i.e. integrating large and small CPU cores. However, the Intel Core i5-12400F does not have any small efficiency cores, but uses six of the large "Golden Cove" CPU cores. It is therefore most similar to the CPUs of the predecessor architecture, none of which use any efficiency cores.

The base clock frequency of the Intel Core i5-12400F is 2.5 GHz, this clock frequency can be increased to up to 4.4 GHz via the turbo mode, provided that only one CPU core is used. When using all CPU cores, the Intel Core i5-12400F can increase its clock frequency up to 4.0 GHz in turbo mode.

Since the Intel Core i5-12400F uses Intel Hyperthreading technology, it can process up to 12 threads simultaneously. The processors TDP is 65 watts, although this can be increased to up to 117 watts for a short time. Many mainboard manufacturers have configured their mainboard in such a way that this increased energy can also be used over longer periods of time. This increases the performance of the processor significantly in some cases.

Up to 128 GB of DDR4-3200 RAM and, for the first time, DDR5-4800, are supported. However, faster main memory speeds outside of the specification can usually be used without any problems. The Intel Core i5-12400F has two memory channels and thus achieves a bandwidth of 76.8 GB per second when using DDR5-4800 RAM.

The new PCIe 5.0 specification is also supported, so that a dedicated graphics card and a fast M.2 SSD can be connected to the system. The processor has 7.5 MB level 2 cache and 18 MB level 3 cache.
