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 8 cores equipped intel Core i7-9700 comes from the ninth generation of Intels Core-i7 series. The processor was released in the second quarter of 2019 and is based on the Coffee Lake Refresh architecture. All processors of this architecture are manufactured in 14-nanometer.

The 8 cores of the Intel Core i7-9700 have a basic clock frequency of 3.00 gigahertz. The turbo tap is 4.70 gigahertz at 4.70 gigahertz and utilization of all 8 cores still at 3.80 gigahertz. The processor does not support hyperthreading, but thanks to free multiplier, overclock. If you want to overclock it is important but the at least one high-quality fan for the base LGA 1151-2 must be installed (for example, Noctua, or Beichiet).

In the Intel Core i7-9700, the internal graphics unit type Intel UHD Graphics 630 is integrated. This has a basic clock of 350 megahertz and a turbo tact of up to 1.20 gigahertz. The graphics unit supports Microsofts DirectX in version 12.0 and decoding / encoding the most important video codecs in hardware. Furthermore, with the Intel UHD Graphics 630 can be operated parallel to 3 screens. The maximum resolution is 4096x2304 @ 24Hz via HDMI and 4096x2304 @ 60Hz via a display port.

The Intel Core i7-9700 supports up to 128 gigabytes of type DDR4 Memory with up to 2666 Megahertz. ECC-RAM, so memory with automatic error correction, does not support the processor.

Since so powerful processors are usually operated with a dedicated graphics card, such a CPU of course requires the appropriate way to use it. In this case, the PCI Express lines integrated over the 16 is.

The TDP, ie the Thermal Design Power, the Intel Core i7-9700 is 65 watts and the maximum operating temperature before the cores run down at 100 ° Celsius.
