Blender 2.81 (bmw27)

Blender is a free 3D graphics software for rendering (creating) 3D bodies, which can also be textured and animated in the software. The Blender benchmark creates predefined scenes and measures the time (s) required for the entire scene. The shorter the time required, the better. We selected bmw27 as the benchmark scene.

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 i7-4790 was launched in the second quarter of 2014 and is from the fourth generation of the Intel Core i7 series. It is based on the Intel socket LGA 1150 and supports the following virtualization technologies: VT-x, VT-x EPT, VT-d. The Intel Core i7-4790 is based on the Haswell S processor architecture and is manufactured using the 22-nanometer process.

The processor has 4 cores with a base clock frequency of 3.60 gigahertz. The maximum turbo clock is 4.00 gigahertz when a single core is loaded and still 3.80 gigahertz when all cores are loaded. The processor supports Hyperthreading technology, which means that up to 8 computing threads are available. The Intel Core i7-4790 cannot be overclocked, this is reserved for the Intel Core i7-4790K.

The Intel HD Graphics 4600 is used as the internal graphics unit in the processor. This iGPU clocks at 0.35 gigahertz and has a maximum dynamic clock frequency of 1.20 gigahertz. The graphics unit, which was used for the first time in the second quarter of 2013, is manufactured using the 22-nanometer process and can supply up to 3 monitors with an image. The graphics unit has 20 execution units with 160 shaders and thus achieves an FP32 computing power (single precision) of 384 gigaflops.

A dedicated graphics card can also be operated with the Intel Core i7-4790, for which 16 PCI Express lines in version 3.0 are available.

The Intel Core i7-4790 has 2 memory channels through which the processor can be operated with up to 32 gigabytes. DDR3-1600 RAM is officially supported, but somewhat faster or slower DDR memory modules can usually also be installed. Memory with automatic error correction (ECC memory) is not supported by the Intel Core i7-4790.
