Lightroom Classic has always performed well with AMD processors, although Intel has had a slight lead in active tasks. However, AMD’s Ryzen 5000 Series processors are here, touting major increases in performance in per-core performance which should allow AMD to take a solid lead over Intel no matter what your workflow is in Lightroom Classic.
Ever since AMD launched their Ryzen 3000 Series processors last year, AMD and Intel have had almost identical performance in After Effects. With the new Ryzen 5000 Series, however, AMD is advertising major performance improvements that should allow them to take a solid performance lead over Intel.
Until recently, Intel enjoyed the benefit of being the only CPUs that could be used for hardware accelerated encoding/decoding of H.264 and HEVC media with their Quick Sync feature. However, with Premiere Pro 14.5 including GPU-based hardware encoding/decoding, the playing field has been leveled, allowing AMD to truly show what they are capable of. Will the new AMD Ryzen 5000 Series out-perform the Intel options, or will Intel maintain a lead even without the benefit of hardware encoding/decoding?
Ever since the launch of their 3rd generation Ryzen and Threadripper processors, AMD processors have been a strong choice for DaVinci Resolve Studio. Not only is Resolve able to utilize a decent number of CPU cores, but because of how heavily it leverages the GPU, having a platform with PCI-E 4.0 can make a measurable impact on performance. However, AMD’s Ryzen 5000 Series processors are here, touting major increases in performance in per-core performance which should allow AMD to take a solid lead over Intel in DaVinci Resolve.
AMD and Intel have both released small revisions to their latest-gen consumer CPU lines, in the form of the Ryzen XT models and Core i9 10850K. On paper these appear to be identical to current products except for very slight adjustments in clock speed, but how do they stack up in real-world photogrammetry applications?
AMD and Intel have both added new CPUs to their existing product lines. AMD launched the Ryzen 3600XT/3800XT/3900XT and Intel launched the core i9 10850K. There are only minor differences in these new CPUs, but what impact does that have on 3ds Max?

Both AMD and Intel have recently released a number of minor updates to their CPUs with AMD launching the Ryzen 3600XT, 3800XT, and 3900XT while Intel has launched the Core i9 10850K. These new models are only slightly different than others that are already on the market, but do they provide any performance benefit?
The release of 3ds Max 2021, as well as new CPUs from Intel and AMD, it was time for a new round of hardware testing. This was also a great opportunity to begin building a new benchmark suite to test many of the common actions within 3ds Max such as modeling, simulations and rendering. There has been a lot of changes within 3ds Max as well as with CPUs in the years since our last pass, so let’s see how Max handles now.
We’ve observed that some photogrammetry applications seem to perform better with lower core count processors, so we wanted to look at whether Hyperthreading and Simultaneous Multithreading could be negatively impacting performance in these programs. Next up is RealityCapture.
