Performance Metrics

Analyze Test Configuration:

Blender 2.90

Blend File: Pabellon Barcelona - Compute: CPU-Only

OpenBenchmarking.org metrics for this test profile configuration based on 382 public results since 31 August 2020 with the latest data as of 8 January 2021.

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.

Does It Scale Well With Increasing Cores?

Yes, based on the automated analysis of the collected public benchmark data, this test / test settings does generally scale well with increasing CPU core counts. Data based on publicly available results for this test / test settings, separated by vendor, result divided by the reference CPU clock speed, grouped by matching physical CPU core count, and normalized against the smallest core count tested from each vendor for each CPU having a sufficient number of test samples and statistically significant data.

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.
