Performance in programs

Cinebench R15

Cinebench R15 is based on Cinema 4D software. It’s very useful to measure the performance gain obtained by the presence of several processing cores while rendering heavy 3D images. Rendering is an area where a bigger number of cores helps a lot┬ábecause usually, this kind of software recognizes several processors (Cinebench R15, for example, can use up to 256 processing cores).

We ran the CPU benchmark, which renders a complex image using all the processing cores (real and virtual) to speed up the process. The result is given as a score.

Pentium G4600

On Cinebench R15 CPU benchmark, the Pentium G4600 was 7% slower than the Core i3-7100.

Blender

Blender is an image and movie rendering software that uses all the threads of the CPU. We used the program to render a heavy image of a project named Gooseberry Benchmark. The graph below shows the time the CPU used to finish the image, so the less, the better.

Pentium G4600

On Blender, the Pentium G4600 was 9% slower than the Core i3-7100.

CPU-Z

On its current version, the well-known hardware identification software CPU-Z comes with a benchmarking tool, which measures CPU performance for one core and for all available cores.

Pentium G4600

On the single thread benchmark, the Pentium G4600 was 7% slower than the Core i3-7100.

Pentium G4600

On the multiple thread benchmark, the Pentium G4600 was 9% slower than the Core i3-7100.

Handbrake

Media Espresso is a video conversion program that uses the graphics processing unit of the video engine to speed up the conversion process. We converted a 1 GiB, 1920x1080i, 23,738 kbps, .mov video file to a smaller 320×200, H.264, .MP4 file for viewing on a smartphone.┬áThe results below are given in seconds, so the lower the better.

Pentium G4600

Here the Pentium G4600 was 13% slower than the Core i3-7100.

WinRAR

Another task where the CPU is very demanded is on file compacting. We ran a test compacting a folder with 8 GiB on 6.813 files to a file, using WinRAR 4.2. The graph below shows the time taken for each test.

Pentium G4600

In WinRAR, the Pentium G4600 was 6% slower than the Core i3-7100.

V-Ray Benchmark

V-Ray Benchmark is a tool for measuring image rendering performance using the processor and the graphics card. It renders two images, one using the processor (CPU) and one using the video engine (GPU). We ran the benchmark and compared the CPU time on the graphics below.

Pentium G4600

On V-Ray, the Pentium G4600 was 7% slower than the Core i3-7100.
