Corona CPU Benchmark Released

 

We have discovered a new CPU benchmark based on the Corona 1.3 CPU renderer, providing PC enthusiasts with a potential new tool for judging your CPUs performance.  

The tool itself is very easy to use, simply save, extract, and run the downloadable file from their site and you can get started.

The benchmark itself starts automatically once you run it and it will render it's standard testing scene automatically give us results at the end that we can then use to compare performance between CPUs.

Looking at the user submitted scores on the Corona Renderer website the benchmark has been used in workstation grade systems with up to 72 CPU threads, meaning that this benchmark is made with heavy hyper threading in mind, making it suitable for testing CPUs with both small and large CPU core counts.

(Above is my results using my 4.7GHz Intel i7 6700K on Windows 10)

  

The benchmark is currently available to download on the Corona Renderer website and is 188MB in size. 

Right now I know what a lot of readers will be wondering, will this benchmark be used in future CPU reviews? Well, the answer is not as simple as a yes or a no, as at this time we will still need to conduct feasibility testing in order to see if this benchmark is fair and useful for detailed performance comparisons, but we will be looking into it. 

You can help us out by sending us your own results for this benchmark on the OC3D Forum alongside your own system specifications.

 

You can join the discussion or show us your own results for the Corona CPU benchmark on the OC3D Forums.

Ive got a little Xeon in Im working on atm so Ive just done a quick run on that.

**Single tear rolls down cheek**

Benched my dual Xeon (X79 E5-2630v2 @2.60GHz x2) workstation, will re-run my E3-1230v3 when I get home.

Also, please dont extract the assets in the file for your own use, Viz work or otherwise like a certain green coloured graphic card vendor did in order to promote their own render engine last year.

Otoy also do a good GPU benchmark tool, CUDA only for not but the next major upodate to their render engine will support AMD cards.

EDIT: OK, re-ran the benchmark again (Same dual E5-2630v2 workstation) and got a much quicker score. Going to so a few more runs to see if the results are consistant.

EDIT EDIT: Ran it a few more times till i got a consistant result - 2:26. It seems to be a tad unstable and pauses/hangs fequently. If you get a black screen on start without the render showing restart it.Quote

^Copied from the result pop-up (I corrected the CPU clock, though)

If RAM matters I have 8GB of 1600MHz

EDIT: Just noticed you wanted a screencap with CPU-Z, so I added thatQuote

Some very nice scores you have there, very interesting differences to after a few runs. That could be due to your dual CPU setup, but I will have to see how constant the score is with my CPUs.

It is a shame that I didn't see this benchmark in your old thread, but sadly the forums has to many posts to simply read them all.

Gave my daily rig a little bump and it did reasonably well, I shall have to try it with the 5960X next week.
