Blender

Blender is an open-source 3D creation software project. This test is of Blender's Cycles benchmark with various sample files. GPU computing is supported. This system/blender test profile makes use of the system-supplied Blender. Use pts/blender if wishing to stick to a fixed version of Blender.

To run this test with the Phoronix Test Suite, the basic command is: phoronix-test-suite benchmark system/blender.

Performance Metrics

Analyze Test Configuration:

Blender 2.83.5

Blend File: Classroom - Compute: CPU-Only

OpenBenchmarking.org metrics for this test profile configuration based on 55 public results since 20 November 2020 with the latest data as of 1 May 2023.

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 2.83.5 - Blend File: Classroom - Compute: CPU-Only) has an average run-time of 17 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.
