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.

News and articles for the Intel Core i5-13600K


The Intel Core i5-13600K is a 14-core processor that can process up to 20 threads simultaneously on its large cores by using Intel Hyperthreading Technology. The core structure of the Intel Core i5-13600K is hybrid and consists of 6 large CPU cores (performance cores) of the "Raptor Cove" architecture and 8 smaller "Gracemont" efficiency cores.

Due to the hybrid core structure, the processor is very economical when idle or when only little performance is required. If a large amount of computing power is called up, the P cores can work together with the E cores in a network and thus achieve high performance together.

The Intel Core i5-13600K is equipped with a free multiplier and can therefore be overclocked very easily. However, a good CPU cooler is required for this, because when a processor is overclocked, its energy consumption and thus heat dissipation also increase significantly.

The processors P cores clock at 3.5 GHz and can even reach up to 5.1 GHz in turbo mode. The clock frequency of the smaller E cores is 2.6 GHz (3.9 GHz in turbo mode).

The Intel UHD Graphics 770, already known from the predecessor, is used as the iGPU (integrated graphics). This iGPU is sufficient to display an image on a monitor and play videos smoothly. A stronger, dedicated graphics card is usually required for PC games.

The Intel Core i5-13600K supports up to 128 GB of RAM in a maximum of two memory channels and 4 memory banks. The processor is released for the use of fast DDR5-5600 memory. An XMP 3.0 overclocking profile can also be used to easily connect even faster main memory modules to the processor.

The processor supports PCIe 5.0 with 20 lines. These are usually used for a dedicated graphics card and a fast M.2 SSD. Additional devices and USB ports are then connected via the mainboards chipset.
