Here, we are looking at each CPU’s ability to perform rendering and encoding tasks.
Cinebench R20 Multithread
Naturally, Intel is at a disadvantage in this test. The 3900X does a lot better here due to the higher core count. Once more, the 10th generation Intel’s are neck and neck with the 9900K falling behind the rest.
Cinebench R20 Single Thread
Here we see a result of 529 overclocked and 533 stock. This is an area where the stock results are better due to the turbo boost feature going higher than the manual overclock.
This is the Blender Open Beta Benchmark version 2.04. This Blender Benchmark allows you to download multiple demos for rendering and render up to six of them in sequence. This can take an extremely long time to run all of them. You also have the option of testing different versions of Blender from the same launcher. We chose two of the tests out of the six, which seemed to have a longer run time than the others.
In the Blender test, we see slightly better results out of the GIGABYTE Z490 Aorus Master than we do out of the MSI MPG Z490.
In this test, the two Z490’s continue to trade blows, favoring MSI by the smallest margin.
V-Ray 4.10.07 was used for this test.
Again, the two Intel systems are fairly evenly matched, but again the nod goes to MSI unless your overclocking.
This is an encoding using the 1080P fast 30 preset. The only changes made to the application were disabling of GPU acceleration. The video was a 4K video at 4 minutes and 42 seconds in length.
In the Handbrake encode, the GIGABYTE Z490 Aorus Master was unusually fast, coming out well ahead of the MSI MPG Z490.
Again, the results are nearly identical. Even overclocked, the Intel 10900K still loses to AMD’s Ryzen 9 3900X.
