V-Ray Benchmarking Tool
Benchmarking your hardware can be quite difficult. Fortunately, the guys at Chaos Group have made it pretty easy for us to compare our hardware to other users. With their benchmarking tool, you can test both your CPU and your GPU in a couple of minutes, and quickly see the speed of both. You can then compare the two to other test results, and see if your hardware is performing on par.
In this tutorial, we don’t even need to run 3ds Max, or install anything. The benchmarking tool is a V-Ray render engine, wrapped in a stand alone piece of software, and will run directly on your PC.
You can also use the benchmark list, to figure out which processors give you the most bang for the buck in V-Ray. Fx. my Quadro M6000 isn’t really outperforming the new Pascal series. Even the GTX 1070 beats it.
In this Quick Tip you’ll learn where to download the tool, and how to use it. It is super easy, and it only takes about 10 minutes, depending on your internet connection.
