Performance Metrics

Analyze Test Configuration:

Blender 2.90

Blend File: BMW27 - Compute: CPU-Only

OpenBenchmarking.org metrics for this test profile configuration based on 607 public samples since 31 August 2020 with the latest data as of 30 November 2020.

Below is an overview of the generalized performance for components where there is sufficient statistically significant data based upon user-uploaded results. It is important to keep in mind particularly in the Linux/open-source space there can be vastly different OS configurations, with this overview intended to offer just general guidance as to the performance expectations.

Based on OpenBenchmarking.org data, the selected test / test configuration (Blender 2.90 - Blend File: BMW27 - Compute: CPU-Only) has an average run-time of 8 minutes. By default this test profile is set to run at least 3 times but may increase if the standard deviation exceeds pre-defined defaults or other calculations deem additional runs necessary for greater statistical accuracy of the result.

Download problem

I tried to install this test (#28 on the interactive list), and downloading of cycles_benchmark_20160228.zip was impossible. The first 200MB arrived in seconds, then it took over an hour to reach 425MB, where it finally stalled. This behaviour is repeatable; I have checked my broadband speed at 100Mbps.
