We have finally release an updated Corona Benchmark. It features automatic upload and verification of results, new scene, and Corona 1.3 core. Download the benchmark and view results here: https://corona-renderer.com/benchmark

In addition you can use this thread to share and discuss results, and report any problems.

edit: I am attaching the high-res version of the scene used here as a bonus

Can confirm, Corona benchmark tries to install 64bit VS++ redist, but fails.
The official 64bit VS++ exits with the following in the log:
Code: [Select]

Know bullshit with the 2015 installer, this is Computer specific, I'll post a workaround in this thread in couple of minutes.

It's a 1.3 benchmark, not 1.4.
I thought that was the Trello entry submited earlier then 1.4 release...

Title: Re: Corona 1.3 Benchmark
Post by: Ondra on 2016-03-08, 16:33:06
it was originally planned for 1.3, but it got postponed. We decided to name it 1.3 benchmark, as it does not use the 1.4 features - adaptivity (which currently causes non-determinism), denoising (which is not fully debugged yet), and new VFB.

I can easily make up to 20% difference in render time on my machine depending on various factor, like how fresh OS install is, how many programs are running in the background, how buisy they are and so on. Nothing surprising here.

The first run was at 1:16. After it finished rendering it just kept going for about half a minute, but reported the results with the time it actually finished rendering.

Title: Re: Corona 1.3 Benchmark

Would be also great to increase the resolution to get higher render times. All high-end xeons get about the same result with the current test.
Title: Re: Corona 1.3 Benchmark
Post by: romullus on 2016-03-09, 09:15:43
I have feature request for benchmark score table - make it able to sort records by other columns, not only render time. Ability to sort by CPU would be most welcome as it would allow to estimate average performance of particular CPU.

I saw i7 4771 entry with 7:16 time, while mine does it in about 5 minutes. Without sorting list by CPU, it's impossible to hunt down all entries of certain PC configuration and thus it makes this benchmark less effective than it could be.

heh - thanks.
I have 3 systems, all three for some awesome reason post VS++ 2015 install errors. Win7 64bit, 2x 8.1 64bit
all updated windows.
I found the culprit on one system, but not the other 2.

All redists of c++ 2015 fail to install, culprit on one being a broken security update, that you have to force install through Deployment Image Servicing and Management. I can't get that update installed on the other two, every fix for this is PC specific and can have a multitude of reasons, ranging from too small reserved system partition (deleted it on one PC for programming reasons on my part) to random shit like Cisco VPN clients conflicting.
There are pages upon pages of this update's clusterfuck and it forbidding to install vs c++ 2015, whilst posting awesome and very descriptive "unspecified error" messages.
Basicly an exeption in the code, with no explanation or debug messages to help.

One system is freshly installed, 100% empty - no idea why there.

Those are E5-2xxx cpus, they don't work in 4-cpu configs. So probably some kind of bug. (ES cpus, too many cores, etc.)

 I wonder, why is a 2680v2 lower that the 2650v3. The 2650v3 doesnt even come close to the base clock of the 2680v2 with turbo boost on. When on full load I get close to 2.6ghz per core.
Title: Re: Corona 1.3 Benchmark
Post by: Juraj Talcik on 2016-03-09, 16:14:40
Might be perhaps because Corona is more memory bandwidth taxing that most multithreaded applications.

2680v2 is still stronger in all other benchmarks than 2650v3 (3.05Ghz all-core turbo vs 2.6Ghz all-core turbo cannot be nullified by Haswell vs Ivy Bridge improvement, which isn't so drastic).
On other hand, Haswell-E is on DDR4, most builds usually at 2166mhz, while most Ivy-Bridge-E are 1600Mhz (my board for some example won't even accept to run at such clock, so I am forced to run at 1333).

This can make a difference if Corona can use it well.
Title: Re: Corona 1.3 Benchmark
Post by: Gtelis on 2016-03-09, 16:29:33
That looks to be the case. I am just curious about future upgrades and the difference between generation of cpus. There best benchmarks are on the software you will actually use and since corona is one in our case I was surprised to see that difference. (note: Juraj that was your test I saw).  Very nice benchmark overall and easy to test across many machines. The alpha V4 gave me the higher results for a i7 3820 than the 2650v3's.
Title: Re: Corona 1.3 Benchmark
Post by: Juraj Talcik on 2016-03-09, 16:33:23
The V4 build basically ignored second CPU in dual-setup and even than it didn't scale well across many threads.

the time reported in renderstamp is total time, including startup/cleanup. The popup and our website show only rendering time.

C++ 2015 32 and 64 bit succesfully installed.
I presume it's the windows security update, that's required to install the vs c++ 2015. I circumvented it and force installed it, worked great, but the programm still wouldn't launch.
On neither of 3 machines.

Far fetched, but German OEM licence preventing the update maybe? At this point I believe a higher power is trying to prevent me from running that piece of code.

Yesterday I decided to check how the benchmark performs on my old laptop for fun, and I am getting this super informative error while trying to submit the result. This probably isn't very important, but I will report it on mantis.
Btw, render time on this super old i3@2,4GHz is ~20min, while it's 5min on an i7-4770. That's pretty surprising. Only 4x difference. :)

The older benchmark supports it. You can check that and compare to those plattforms posted in the thread.
https://corona-renderer.com/forum/index.php/topic,559.0.html
Why a non SSE4.1 version was included is a mystery to me aswell.

SSE 4.1 was introduced only a generation later, with the bulldozer architechture, although ironically enough Phenom II to this day are faster with FPU performance, due IPS being higher, but core count lower.
You get a ~20% performance hit and do not support the embree kernel fully. Otherwise there is no difference.

edit: As far as I recall, one of my older machines, phenom II x6 1045T 2,7ghz was 1.2-1.3 mio rays/s on the old benchmark.

BTW, I know AVX didn't bring any really new improvments over SSE4.1 and using embree with AVX would screw over compatibility, but was corona ever tried out with AVX, the way embree was originally intended to be run? Was there a performance imporvement?

Post by: Ondra on 2016-03-14, 18:48:20
corona has SSE2 or SSE4.1 switch that you need to do during installation. Embree switches between SSE2, SSE4.2, AVX, and AVX2 in run time based on CPU type. It always picks the best option for you, regardless whether corona has legacy or regular build.

It is possible they disabled some cores so they have only one processor group (and legacy applications work with all cores)

Considering the fact, that you made it to 15 passes it implies a hardware failure. Faulted returns when over clocking usually make this behaviour.

Hi,

I am the developer of Corona Benchmark OS X port. First, I would like to thank you for testing the Benchmark, it is very helpful.

To find the cause of problems I created special testing build https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B7xyYS3daSJ7Z1d6UWpkZXVrMHc (https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B7xyYS3daSJ7Z1d6UWpkZXVrMHc). Please test it and let me know if there will be some error message or crash.

you must install vc_redist.x64.exe from https://www.microsoft.com/en-US/download/details.aspx?id=48145 (https://www.microsoft.com/en-US/download/details.aspx?id=48145). If it doesn't help try to restart computer after installation of redistributables.

Hello guys!!

I just got this error after few minutes running benchmark.

I already tried to re-instal Visual C++, but the error remains.

Thx!
Hi, try this solution. It may sound as stupid as "reboot your PC", but has actually helped some users:

Don't mistake overclocked results crowding the top places.
The 5960x (there is no 5950x) gets ~2:20m on full turbo @ stock freq.
The 6950x gets ~ 1:50m on full turbo @ stock freq.
Both have the same frequency, but the 6950x has two more cores.

yes, goto https://corona-renderer.com/benchmark/?all , copy table to excel, done.
You can do all Excel stuff, average across CPUs, CPU vendors and all the statistics Jazz.

The 6811 entries are probably all there is.

That isn't really the solution.
First - data not up to date. But that could be solved by dynamic accessing html data.
Second - I have a feeling that original database is a little bit better sorted. For example, the model of the processor and number of processors should be separated.

We show the CPu name exactly as it is sent to us - just one string ;) We store some additional data not shown on the page, such as cache sizes, but they are probably not interesting to users (which is why they are not shown on the page). We could make you an API to access the data easier (json/xml), but if you dont mind I would rather first see your utility ;). We had too many people promising something and not delivering, I dont want to commit extra work to this beforehand. Hope you understand.

I understand perfectly.
So I'll try to make some mockup application based on data from the website.

My main purpose is to find easy way to compare true performance of processors. I don't find synthetic benchmarks satisfying.
My main PC uses are Max + Corona/Vray, and I just want to make good purchase decisions.
Sometimes you just get few percent more performance, for a lot more money. That's why I came up with the idea (currently building next workstation for my work).

CPU is the most important factor, and specific model should get pretty consistent results. The faster ones are probably overclocked.
Title: Re: Corona 1.3 Benchmark
Post by: azimuth on 2017-12-20, 13:31:34
Therefore, you need to display the actual frequency of the processor, the system bus, and perhaps the model of the motherboard. A lot of talk on the network about what kind of configuration should be a computer for 3DMax. This table will help at least partially solve this problem.
I also want to see the diagram on this table (possibly with grouping by processors). 30 entries on the page are few to analyze the results.
For starters, it would be enough to download the data for self-analysis.

Hi guys, I recently bought a new PC and I'm in a bit of a struggle here. When I build it I benchmarked it in Cinebench and I got a score of 1977pts which was way too low. I then went in BIOS and activated the X.M.P. and then the score went up to 2650pts. After that I overclocked it @4.0 GHz and the score was around 2950pts. So, today I decided to benckmark it in Corona 1.3 benchmark and I'm posting a screenshot with my score. I know this has something to do with my computer and I'm asking you guys for any possible solution to this problem. Thank you!

this one is less than 2 years old and already not really useable as some machines are down to 14 seconds. How about for the next one the average machine takes more like 30 mins to complete? I reckon there are still enough of us nerds willing to wait that long so that you will still get a decent amount of data.

Using cpu-z or your bios check whether your ram is running in dual or single mode.  You want dual (quad is even better but you only have 2 sticks.). If you're in single mode your sticks might be in the wrong spots.  Seems like you are RAM bottlenecked.

We are not planning to do new benchmark soon, we are currently understaffed as there is ridiculous stortage of programmers in czech republic, and we need to focus on more important projects. The benchmark is just a "nice to have" side project, compared to displacement, tonemapping, etc. improvements.

Please try installing our official version first: https://corona-renderer.com/download/
And then run the benchmark. The point is that the installer installs some additional system components which are required by Corona. It is possible that you are missing those.

Why there are pc with same processor but less ram (like 16) than can get faster result?

Post by: diffuus on 2018-06-08, 08:55:45
If the benchmark render fits into your memory, there is no difference in 16 or 32 or more RAM. More RAM doesn't result in faster render times.
The clock speed of your RAM however will have an impact on the result. (Would be nice to see the clock speed in the table as well)
Another thing is the speed of the CPU itself. Some CPU's run at stock speeds, some are overclocked.

Post by: 3DsChobo on 2018-08-06, 15:40:48
Every now and then, when new processors get released i consult the benchmark results page to see if updating our rendernodes with these new CPUs would be a good choice.

Now with the Benchmark fixed on corona core 1.3 I just wonder if the performance diffenrence between two systems still accurately transfers to the newest release of corona. And if the answer is no: will there be a corona benchmark using a newer render core in the future?
Title: Re: Corona 1.3 Benchmark
Post by: Ryuu on 2018-08-07, 09:31:32
If we released a new version of benchmark, there would certainly be some performance difference (I hope for the better), but the relative performance of 2 difrerent CPUs should be roughly still the same. We didn't do any specific CPU optimization for a long time, so anything which speeds up Corona on CPU A should (almost) equally speed it up on CPU B.

For this reason we don't have any immediate plans for releasing a new version of benchmark, unless we do some optimization targeting specific CPUs (or specific instruction sets) or we port Corona to a new platform.

Hi! I'm doing some test and I'd like to know if this render times are alligned with my specs.

I own a laptop Dell Inspiron 7559 (Intel Core i7 6700HQ, Nvidia GeForce GTX 960M, 16GB/1600Mhz, SSD 850EVO) and from benchmark tool I got 00:06:48.45, which is one of the worst results (first result was 00:04:51.49)

I've also converted an old scene done with V-Ray 2.x, where I used at the end almost only materials from the Corona Library and for one image of ~2K my laptop took 4 hours to clean up to 5%(+denoiser) at ~700K rays/s without "low on ram" alert.
Maybe is a conflictive scene because of GI and DOF, but I had read that normal values will be within 1,5M and 4M.

Thanks for reading

Laptops will be generally slow, and your result does seem to be within the range available for that processor. Mine uses the same processor (reports a clock speed of 3.13 on the Freq column of the benchmark which is not that different from yours; does report a higher rays/s at 1,532,620 though) and came in at 5m 17s. There are some at the 7 or 8 minute mark for that processor too.

So the same CPU in desktop workstation can perform up to 2X better?
They are the first times with a (slightly) biased solution, so to reduce render times I've to necessarily buy a dedicated workstation.

Thanks

I'm not sure you can get the same CPU in a desktop version - laptop CPUs are generally made specifically to be laptop CPUs (lower power consumption and other things to optimize them for that particular use). This means that in general laptops are not good rendering machines, compared to what you will get for the same price as a desktop.

I've used corona benchmark a lot recently to test some workstations with OC that would be used as rendernode, I've noticed a big difference in watt consumption and temperature of cores between the benchmark and the actual render with v2/3, to the point that I dropped the benchmark completely. I assume it's because the latter uses the new AVX instrunction and a more recent version of embree, among other changes. Are there any plans to release an updated version of the benchmark? I believe it would be helpful also to show the difference between the newer CPUs.

Hello there guys!

Right now I work with 5 pcs for render, using it in DR! I was wondering if it will ever be a Benchmark so see how well the network rendering perform.
Now I'm using an old Dual XEON + 3 i7 4790K + 1 i7 3820 and I'd love to know if it was worth upgrading all the machines or just sell everthing and by the best one on the market (in terms of Brazilian market of course... over here a XEON is worth at least two livers!)

Thanks in advance!

Hi, I also think update to Corona Benchmark would be good. In our case overclocked i9 machines tested with Benchmark 1.3 were completely fine (while running Corona 2.0 on daily basis), but they all started to overheat once we updated renderers to Corona 3.0. (temperatures over 105C). I believe new benchmark could prevent such incidents, adjusting overclocking settings would be easier knowing Corona's behaviour in latest updates.

Hello all,
I remember I saw this around but can't find the right answer, so sorry for asking again. Why in the benchmark results many Ryzen Threadripper are x4? As long as I know you can't have double processors, but maybe I'm not well informed.
Anyone knows about this and can explain? Thanks

If you mean in general, multi socket boards have existed since forever.
In case of threadripper you are correct, there are no multi socket boards for thread ripper, only for the epyc line up.

The Corona benchmark accidentally counts the multiple dies as multiple CPUs. Whilst you could make the argument, that the way thread ripper is set up it's not too far away from that idea, it's a bug.

yes, the benchmark was released before ryzens/threadrippers, so we didnt know the detection will give incorrect results.

Just one question.
I have a Ryzen 7 2700.
Searching on the benchamark results this kind of cpu gives 1:40 min to rendering, in my pc instead is 2.40.
Why?
