Benchmarks Blender 2.79b and PovRay

Blender v2.79b BMW model Benchmark

Blender is the free and open source 3D creation suite. It supports the entirety of the 3D pipeline—modeling, rigging, animation, simulation, rendering, compositing and motion tracking, even video editing and game creation. It comes with a BMW model in it’s benchmark directory which can be used for speed comparison.

The time taken to render the scene is recorded for comparison.

Starting from the PC desktop champion of 4 minutes 24 secs and all the way down to 2 minutes 22 secs on the Intel Core i9-7980XE. The AMD ThreadRipper 2990WX is at least 1 minute faster than the Intel counterpart. With overclocking in place, running all cores at 4 GHz works and score well at 1 min 14 secs

PovRay Benchmark

PovRay is another benchmark which is commonly used for testing CPU speed.  From the chart, it can be easily seen that ThreadRipper 2990WX leads all the way, be it the 2950WX. The closest is probably the Core i9-7980XE which only scores 6670.2.
