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.

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.

Cinebench R11.5, 64bit (iGPU, OpenGL)

Cinebench 11.5 is based on the Cinema 4D Suite, a software that is popular to generate forms and other stuff in 3D. The iGPU test uses the CPU internal graphic unit to execute OpenGL commands.

Until the 6th generation, Intels i-processors were no better/faster than the i7 series. The i9 series, which has been available since the 7th generation, is supposed to go one better in terms of performance in the end consumer sector. The Intel Core i9-9900K has a total of 8 cores that clock with 3.60 gigahertz each. In turbo mode, the clock rate increases to up to 5.00 GHz when a single core is loaded, and it still increases to up to 4.70 GHz when all cores are loaded.

The Intel Core i9-9900K supports Intels Hyperthreading technology, which turns the 8 physical cores into 16 logical cores when required. In addition, the processor, which can be recognized by the "K" at the end of the processor name, can also be overclocked. However, you have to pay attention to sufficient cooling when overclocking. You have to make sure that the processor is sufficiently cooled by a powerful CPU cooler, for example from Noctua, but also a good cooling concept of the PC case. A good CPU cooler is of no use as long as the heat is not optimally conducted out of the case.

The graphics unit integrated in the Intel Core i9-9900K is the "Intel UHD Graphics 630" from Intels graphics solution generation 10.5. The graphics units clock rate is 0.35 GHz by default, but can increase up to 1.20 GHz in turbo mode. The graphics unit supports the decoding of all important video codecs, so nothing stands in the way of occasional movie enjoyment.

The 2 available memory channels support DDR4 modules with up to 2666 megahertz in the RAM and a 16 megabyte L3 cache ensures optimal data exchange between RAM and CPU.

The Intel Core i9-9900K, manufactured in the 14-nanometer process, was released in the fourth quarter of 2018.
