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.

Cinebench R11.5, 64bit (Multi-Core)

Cinebench 11.5 is based on the Cinema 4D Suite, a software that is popular to generate forms and other stuff in 3D. The multi-core test involves all CPU cores and taks a big advantage of hyperthreading.

The Intel Core i7-4790K is one of the most popular processors from the Haswell series of Intels Core i7 processors and was at the time of appearing one of the fastest consumer processors on the processor market.

The Intel Core i7-4790K has 4 cores that have a standard clock of 4.00 Gigahertz. When the processor uses the processor, the turbomodus is activated, which raises the cycle for single core load to 4.40 gigahertz and in the utilization of all 4 cores at least to 4.20 gigahertz per core. In addition, the processor supports the hyperthreading technology from Intel, whereby the processor can share virtually, if necessary, to share each core in order to run more computing operations at once.

One of the main reasons why the Intel Core i7-4790K is so popular because it is ideal for overclocking and so again a whole piece of power becomes more powerful. But then, of course, a standard cooling, such as with the Intel Boxed fan, is no longer sufficient. Here, at least one high-performance processor cooler must be used by, for example, Noctua or convenient. If you want to get the last little performance out of the Intel Core I7-4790K, then does not come around the use of a water cooling.

A graphic unit is already integrated in the Intel Core i7-4790K. This carries the name "Intel HD Graphics 4600", has 20 execution units, clocks in the base with 0.35 Gigahertz and can increase up to 1.25 Gigahertz at full utilization in turbomodus. The graphics unit supports the control of up to 3 monitors.

On the decoding and encoding of the HEVC codec (H.265) in hardware, one must unfortunately still do without this processoreneration, but at least the very widespread H.264 codec is supported in hardware decoding.
