Rendering Performance

We will now take a look at how rendering performance compares.

Cinebench R23

AMD Ryzen 7 5800X3D Cinebench R23 CPU Multi-Core Graph

In the ever-popular Cinebench R23 Multi-Core test, the AMD Ryzen 7 5800X is 4% faster than the Ryzen 7 5800X3D. The L3 cache capacity is doing nothing here for rendering, and it is the CPU with the higher clock speed that produces the best result.

The difference is only exaggerated in Single-Core testing where the Ryzen 7 5800X is 7% faster than the Ryzen 7 5800X3D due to the higher clock speed.

Blender Open Data Benchmark

Take note, the Blender Open Data Benchmark has changed, it now runs 3 scenes and spits out a “Samples per Minute” number, where higher samples are better.

Across the board, the AMD Ryzen 7 5800X is faster than the Ryzen 7 5800X3D in all blender rendering scenes, monster, junkshop, and classroom. In monster the 5800X is 3% faster, in junkshop it is 1% faster, and in classroom it is 2% faster. That L3 cache ain’t doing a thing for Blender with that clock speed difference.

V-Ray 5 Benchmark

In V-Ray 5 Benchmark the Ryzen 7 5800X is 2% faster than the Ryzen 7 5800X3D.


AMD Ryzen 7 5800X3D HandBrake Graph

In HandBrake there was no difference in encoding time, both CPUs provided the same rendering time. This is perhaps a testament to the L3 Cache though, as it is able to overcome the frequency difference in video encoding and provide the exact same performance as the 5800X. Though it is the same performance, and no CPU is different here, so really the 5800X3D provides no benefit over the 5800X for this test.
