AMD Ryzen 5 1600X & 1500X Performance Review
Blender is a free-to-use 3D content creation program that also features an extremely robust rendering back-end. It boasts extremely good multi core scaling and even incorporates a good amount of GPU acceleration for various higher level tasks. In this benchmark we take a custom 1440P 3D image and render it out using the built-in tool. The results you see below list how long it took each processor to complete the test.
3ds MAX Corona Renderer
Autodesk’s 3ds MAX is currently one of the most-used 3D modeling, animation and rendering programs on the market, providing a creative platform for architects to industrial designers alike. Unfortunately its rendering algorithms leave much to be desired and third party rendering add-ons are quite popular. One of the newest ones is called Corona.
In this test we take a custom 3D scene of a room with global illumination enabled and render it out in 720P using Corona’s built-in renderer.
As you can see, both Blender and Corona are heavily multi threaded applications which allows AMD’s Ryzen 5 to compete quite well against its Intel opposites but once again Kaby Lake’s higher frequencies keeps things close.
