We will now take a look at how rendering performance compares.
In Cinebench R23 multi-core performance there doesn’t seem to be any difference between DDR4 or DDR5.
The same is true in single-core performance, there is no difference between DDR4 or DDR5.
Blender Open Data Benchmark
In Blender, we also do not see any major differences between DDR4 or DDR5. The difference shown above is literally just 2 seconds, so well within the margin of error.
In V-Ray 5 there is also no difference between DDR4 or DDR5.
This one surprised us. There actually was a slight difference, with DDR5 producing faster transcoding times rendering video. We had a reduction of 15 seconds off the render time on the DDR5 platform. It isn’t huge, it isn’t major, but it was repeatable and consistent. Not really sure why it would be 15 seconds faster on DDR5, but there you go, it is possible if you are doing long video exports, DDR5 could potentially speed that up just a little bit over DDR4.
