Chaos Announces V-Ray 6 Benchmark

Chaos has recently updated its V-Ray 6 Benchmark, a free standalone application designed to facilitate the evaluation of rendering speeds using the V-Ray renderer. This tool allows users to compare the performance of leading CPUs and GPUs by simulating common 3D rendering tasks involving detailed cityscapes, characters, and hard-surface models. The benchmark is tailored to measure the efficiency of hardware from top manufacturers like NVIDIA, AMD, Intel, and Apple.

Introduced in 2017, the V-Ray Benchmark has become a go-to resource for testing new hardware. It is widely utilized by professionals to determine how different systems handle V-Ray’s rendering tasks, which are critical in visual effects production and design visualization. The latest version, V-Ray 6 Benchmark, brings several new features aimed at providing deeper insights and more flexible testing options.

Key enhancements in V-Ray 6 Benchmark include looping tests, which allow users to test hardware limits by running extended render sessions. This feature helps identify how hardware performs under prolonged stress, offering a clearer view of its capabilities over time. Additionally, the benchmark now supports GPU rendering mode comparisons, enabling users to switch between RTX and CUDA modes on both GPU and CPU setups to directly compare different rendering engines and overall system performance.

A new benchmark scene featuring a roving house model has also been introduced. This model scales efficiently across multiple GPUs or CPUs, supporting configurations of up to eight GPUs or 256 CPU cores, demonstrating its utility in high-performance environments. Phillip Miller, Vice President of Product Management at Chaos, emphasized the comprehensive nature of the V-Ray 6 Benchmark. Unlike other benchmarks that focus solely on CPU or GPU performance, V-Ray 6 Benchmark is designed to test the total system performance across the most commonly used rendering platforms in the industry.

The V-Ray 6 Benchmark is now available for free, offering both amateur and professional users a robust tool for assessing and comparing the rendering capabilities of their hardware setups.
