3D Rendering; let's compare 8150 to 2600k!

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Saw some posts over at Anand from some guy that is surely a shill or a snake oil salseman, however, in the spirit of wanting the best information and testing chips on real world workloads, I'd like to do the following with someone running an 8150.

If you're a 3D guy and have Maya installed (preferably with VRay as well) then I can send you over a fairly heavy and complex scene to render head to head against one of my 2600k render nodes.

The AMD chip is probably too power hungry for my needs regardless, but I'd still like to see what I'm missing out on without relying 100% on synthetic benchmarks (which really aren't that synthetic, especially in the case of CineBench 11.5).

I have the same interest in 3D rendering. I use rhino with VRay and 3dsmax. I will get my 8150 soon, then I will run a few tests on it.

About Cinebench:
So far I have experience with several systems. The are basically on-par with each in VRay in my tests: (I usually run 3 times and take average.)

i7 960@4GHz X6@4GHz Dual Xeon E5520 2.26GHz
Cinebench score:
6.91 7.14 8.19
Rhino (w/ VRay) rendering time:
test1:
65.4s 71s 64.5s
test2:
N/A 162.2s 127.2s
3dsmax rendering test:
N/A 171s 160s

I would say Cinebench is OK in accuracy It's understandable different rendering engin perfromance varies on different platforms.

anand(i think) did a test with mental ray, it sucked there too.

Anand did it on a CHV, I wouldn' rely on those much, if you're looking for the absolute maximum performance.

From my testing as well, CineBench proves to come very close to showing real world rendering speeds as well.

I don't have much hopes for BD based on it's sub 6 score.

cinebench is a bit biased towards single thread performance compared to MR but i guess it also depends on what kinds of renders you do. geometry spawning and light maps for example are still single threaded in MR and in 1 minute production renders could easily take up third of the render time

I'm looking to test something more along the lines of a nice, 30-90 minute render per frame.

Something with heavy geometry load outs as well as large texture directories with GI calculations and all that good stuff. That way it's as balanced a test as possible.

I agree with you that CineBench isn't a perfect test. The render is too fast and too light to be truly 100% meaningful.

Ideally a benchmark uses a scene with 10+ million polygons (before smoothing) and >1GB of textures in addition to running global illum, maybe some sub surface stuff, motion blur and possibly depth of field as well.

Clock for clock the 2600K will be faster.

8150 @ 5ghz - 7.94 in R115
2600K @ 5Ghz - 10.04 in R115
post #9 of 9
Even my i7-870 @ 4.2 gets a 7.20 .. the FX-8150 only gets 7.94 @ 5Ghz ? so clock for clock my 2 year old cpu would also be faster , only advantage BD has is higher clocks and ill never clock that high to beat it out unfortunatly .

the 2600k is the best cpu for $$ .. only true amd fanboys will go out and buy bulldozer .. because countless reviews prove that BD is a flop .

But for gaming , its a good cpu .. nothing better than what intel already has though .. its not a leap in technology or anything , which it should have been .
