Benchmarks Blender 2.79b and PovRay

Benchmark – Blender 2.79b 

Blender benchmark 1.0b2 runs the test against the processor to render the image. This tool can be used to analyse the processor performance.

In this test, we noticed something strange. When the system is at 5.1 GHz, the time taken to complete the test is longer. I think this is probably due to the high temperatures and the processor gets throttled down. Nevertheless, the blender took 5 mins 3 secs to complete the test. The Ryzen 7 2700X is half a minute faster.



PovRay is another test we used for testing the processor capabilities. In this test, we check out the single and multi thread performance.

It can be seen from the chart Intel processors all have amazing good single core performance. In fact the single thread performance beats the AMD counterparts, even the threadripper couldn’t match it except the Ryzen 7 2700X. When it comes to multithread, the Core i7-9700K overclock gets closer to the Ryzen 7 2700X.

It looks like application that do not use many cores and threads might benefit in benchmarks.

  1. What kind of voltages were you running when you had the 9700k at 5.1? I’m also quite curious as to what temps the vrm had during testing.
