Content creation: FryRender
FryRender is a benchmarking framework for everyone, not just for 3D users; anyone out there, from hardware integrators or hardware reviewers to die-hard gamers. Since its conception, FryRender has been designed with the aim of being the most muscled engine in its category. As a result, and after several years of intense development, FryRender's core doesn't let a single CPU cycle be wasted. Its routines have been written to be cache efficient, and to take the maximum advantage possible of the new multi-threading capabilities present in modern CPU architectures. Being a highly-optimized and extremely math-intensive application (mostly in floating-point) which makes a very efficient use of the system's cache, we think that FryRender is the near perfect tool for measuring "how much brute computational power" a computer is able to deliver.
If you are wondering what is up with the latest FryBench results, well I mention already that it will be hard to find software that can actually support more than 32 threads. FryBench supports precisely that, 32 threads (and not anything higher). Ergo, a 16-core /32-thread processor should offer fairly close to similar performance compared to even the 32c/64t 2990WX. Yep, welcome to the year 2018.
Count them - Fryrender utilizes 32 threads - above, an example screenshot we performed with the 64-thread 2990WX.
