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 48 public results since 20 November 2020 with the latest data as of 26 October 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.

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 18 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.
