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!

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.

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.
