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 i7-10700K is an 8-core processor that can process up to 16 simultaneous threads thanks to Hyper-Threading technology. It has a high base clock of 3.8 GHz, which it can increase up to 4.9 GHz when all cores are utilized. If only one core is utilized, even 5.1 GHz is possible. The CPU is enabled for overclocking and has a multiplier that can be adjusted in the BIOS. Thus, the clock rate can be increased even further if desired. The best possible CPU cooler is required for overclocking.

The Intel Core i7-10700K belongs to the 10th generation of Intel Core i 7 processors and is manufactured in a highly optimized 14 nm process. It belongs to the Comet Lake S processor group. It officially has a TDP of 125 watts, but this is clearly exceeded when all 8 cores are utilized. If the processor is overclocked, 300 watts are also possible. Intel specifies the Tjunction max. with 100 °C. This refers to the maximum temperature that is measured in the CPU core. When the temperature is reached, the CPUs clock rate is automatically reduced to prevent damage to the processor.

An integrated graphics card is included in the processor. Specifically, it is the Intel UHD Graphics 630, which is quite sufficient for smaller or older games in Full HD. For newer games, we recommend using a dedicated graphics card, such as a GeForce RTX 2070 or GeForce RTX 2080.

The 10th generation of Intel Core processors for the mainstream fits into the new socket LGA 1200, which has more traces than the predecessor socket. Among other things, this is supposed to ensure a better power supply for the new processors. The processor has 16 megabytes of level-3 cache. The Intel Core i7-10700K was introduced in the 2nd quarter of 2020.
