Chaos Group has announced an update to its V-Ray 5 benchmarking application. The program has a new look and now includes 3 tests

New look and new tests

The new benchmark includes three rendering engine tests, each with a unique scene and unit of measurement:

  1. V-Ray — CPU compatible, measured in vsamples
  2. V-Ray GPU CUDA — GPU and CPU compatible, measured in vpaths
  3. New! V-Ray GPU RTX — NVIDIA RTX GPU compatible, measured in vrays

Compared to the previous benchmark, the new test scenes are more complex, making them a much better test for the new super-fast hardware that’s now available.

Test 1: V-Ray

This test benchmarks V-Ray rendering on the CPU. It takes just a minute and gives you a result in vsamples. Higher numbers are better.

Test 2: V-Ray GPU CUDA

This test benchmarks rendering with V-Ray GPU CUDA, which can render on both GPUs and CPUs. Here, you have several options. By default, it will test the rendering speed using your GPU(s). But you can turn on and off any device to try different combinations, including turning on everything — both GPUs and CPUs — to see the results. The results of the V-Ray GPU CUDA tests are measured in vpaths. 

Test 3: V-Ray GPU RTX

New to the V-Ray 5 Benchmark suite is a third test that renders using our V-Ray GPU RTX engine. This GPU renderer takes advantage of the ray tracing (RT) cores in NVIDIA RTX GPUs. If you have more than one GPU, you can test individual cards or multiple cards together. V-Ray GPU RTX scores are measured in vrays.
