Workstation & Productivity Testing
Blender Benchmark 2.82 – BMW27
A new platform to collect and display the results of hardware and software performance tests. Aimed at an optimal comparison between system hardware and installations using open source software and testing content in the public domain.
In something a little more real-world, the Core i9-10900K smokes through the BMW benchmark render in a touch over 2 minutes, nearly matching the 12-core Ryzen 9 3900X, dusting the 10-core HEDT segmented i9-7900X and laying waste to every other lower core count chip from both teams.
POV-Ray 3.7 Standard Benchmark – CPU
The POV-Ray standard benchmark shows similar results with the i9-10900K more than able to hold its own in workstation tasks
x265 HD Benchmark
A benchmark that measures how fast your computer can encode HD (1080p) video in the new H.265 / HEVC format.
Encoding video to HEVC is not that uncommon these days, and the i9-10900K just screams through it, even whipping the 12-core 3900X by a fair margin.
The benchmark shows a rating in MIPS (million instructions per second). The rating value is calculated from the measured speed, and it is normalized with the results of the Intel Core 2 CPU with a multi-threading option switched off. So if you have modern CPU from Intel or AMD, rating values in single-thread mode must be close to real CPU frequency. There are two tests, compression with the LZMA method and decompression with the LZMA method. Once the total passes reach 50, the score is taken
Zipping and unzipping files to send is another frequent task that is even more common in this ‘work-from-home’ world this year. The 10900K handles this readily and leaves even last-gen HEDT chips in the dust.
