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 rendering benchmarks?
Intel’s new 10th Gen Core processors are out now, with an increased number of cores and very high clock speeds. How do they stack up against AMD’s Ryzen chips and other current models in a heavily threaded environment like Cinema 4D’s CPU-based rendering?
When AMD launched the 64-core Threadripper 3990X, some reviewers reported that performance of this 128-thread beast was hindered by running a normal version of Windows 10 Pro – and that using Windows 10 Pro for Workstations or Windows 10 Enterprise instead gave better results. We have investigated that claim using Cinebench and V-Ray benchmarks to see if the choice of operating system could impact our customers.
AMD has launched a new top-end CPU in their Threadripper product line, equipped with a whopping 64 cores. We are putting this new 3990X chip to the test in one of the applications where its high core count should shine: CPU based rendering in Cinema 4D. See how it stacks up to the other Threadripper models as well as Intel and AMD’s various other desktop processors.
For CPU-based rendering engines, the processor is by far the most important hardware choice when building or buying a workstation. What is the best choice among all the new CPUs that were launched in 2019, though? We’ve tested a wide range of chips so that we can provide that answer to you, so read on to find out!
Intel and AMD have both launched new lines of high-end desktop processors, with different approaches to increasing value. AMD’s 3rd Gen Threadripper CPUs are based on a newer microarchitecture, bringing better performance for around the same price as previous models. Intel, on the other hand, focused on reducing price while still using the same underlying technology as their last series. We tested both to see which approach gives the best results for rendering in Cinema 4D.
AMD’s Ryzen 3rd generation processors launched a few months ago, with both more cores and higher per-core performance than previous models in that series. Now AMD has released the top-end chip in this family, the Ryzen 9 3950X, with even more cores! In this article we will take a look at how it stacks up to a few other AMD and Intel processors in this application, focusing exclusively on rendering performance measured via Cinebench R20.
Intel updated their workstation-oriented Xeon W processor line recently, using technology from the high-performance Xeon Scalable series. This means more cores in a single-socket platform than Intel has offered before, and since high core count usually translates to fast rendering speeds we are taking a look at how these new CPUs do in Cinema 4D’s native renderer.
AMD’s new Ryzen 3rd generation processors feature both an increase in core count and per-core performance, both of which directly improve rendering speeds in Cinema 4D. In this article we will take a look at how they stack up to other AMD and Intel processors in this application, focusing exclusively on rendering performance via Cinebench R20.
AMD launched their third generation of mainstream Ryzen processors today, but we were only provided with the low-end Ryzen 5 3600 ahead of time. We have ordered the Ryzen 7 3800X and Ryzen 9 3900X, and should be testing them soon, but until then we can at least look at how the overall architecture is doing with the example we do have.
