Chaos Releases V-Ray 6 Benchmark

Popular Rendering Benchmark Brings Back CPU/GPU Stats in a Minute; New Benchmark Scene for Direct NVIDIA CUDA/RTX Evaluations

Chaos releases V-Ray 6 Benchmark, updating the free standalone application to help users quickly evaluate V-Ray rendering speeds and compare the capabilities of leading CPUs and GPUs. V-Ray 6 Benchmark adds new looping capabilities and GPU mode comparison, giving users even more control over their findings.

Since launching in 2017, V-Ray Benchmark has become a standard for new hardware testing, helping countless users and reviewers assess the rendering performance of laptops, workstations, graphics cards and more. By benchmarking against one of the most popular renderers in the world, professionals can quickly gauge how hardware from NVIDIA, AMD, Intel and Apple handle common 3D assets like cities, characters and hard-surface models.

What’s New in V-Ray 6 Benchmark:

  • Looping Tests — Users can now push hardware limits, letting Benchmark loop their tests for as long as desired. This provides even more insights into the current capabilities of any hardware.
  • GPU Rendering Mode Comparisons — Users can now run either RTX or CUDA on GPU and/or CPU with the same test scene, allowing for direct comparisons between the engines on GPUs and total system performance. 
  • New Benchmark Scene — V-Ray 6’s roving house model is now provided as the Benchmark test scene for both V-Ray and V-Ray GPU, and is shown to scale well on up to eight GPUs or multiple CPUs with up to 256 cores.
  • New Apple Chip Support — V-Ray Benchmark can now return results for Apple M2 and M3 chips, helping artists see how V-Ray will respond on various Macs.

“Most rendering benchmarks are only tailored for one type of hardware — either CPU or GPU,” says Phillip Miller, VP of Product Management at Chaos. “In contrast, the V-Ray 6 Benchmark effectively pushes either CPUs and/or GPUs, giving users a real-world test of their total system with the most highly used renderers in both visual effects production and design visualization.”

The free V-Ray 6 Benchmark app is available now.
