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 i7-11700K is an 8-core desktop processor from Intel. It has a free multiplier, which enables the processor to be overclocked (indicated by the "K" at the end of the product name). The Intel Core i7-11700K clocks its 8 CPU cores with 3.4 GHz. However, it can dynamically adjust its clock frequency (turbo mode) and achieve a clock rate of up to 5.0 GHz when only one CPU core is loaded. A high 4.6 GHz is still possible when multiple cores are loaded.

An Intel Iris Xe Graphics 32 (Rocket Lake S) with 32 execution units, 256 shaders and a clock frequency of up to 1.35 GHz is used as the iGPU (internal graphics unit) in the Intel Core i7-11700K. Although this is the latest Intel graphics architecture, the iGPU is quite slow with a processing power of approx. 690 GFLOPs (FP32, single precision). It is therefore only suitable for older PC games at most. The reason for the poor iGPU performance lies in the processors backport. The architecture used in "Rocket Lake" was actually developed to a structure width of 10 nm, but then had to be ported back to 14 nm by Intel because Intels 10 nm production was not yet sufficiently expanded.

The backport reduces the possible number of cores as well as the clock frequencies of the CPU and GPU. The desktop processors also have a somewhat smaller level 3 cache. In the Intel Core i7-11700K, however, this is sufficiently large at 16 MB. Intel has also massively reduced the number of execution units in the iGPU. While the "Tiger Lake" mobile processors with a structure width of 10 nm can fall back on up to 96 execution units of the Intel Xe graphics, the "Rocket Lake" desktop processors run out of 32 execution units. Intel specifies the TDP of the Intel Core i7-11700K as 125 watts.
