Handbrake, Blender, POV-Ray, CoronaRender, 7-Zip, and WebXPRT
Handbrake is up next, and we are transcoding a 4K MKV to MP4. The 10900K takes its spot right behind the 10980XE and slightly ahead of the 3900X. The 10600K pulls ahead of the 3600X here, opening up a little space for it to stretch its legs and gain a little ground on the 9900K.
Blender shows once again the 3900X taking a spot ahead of the 10900K, while the 7900X falls far behind due to its much more limited clock speed. The 10600K shows more of the same with it slotting right in between the 3600X ahead of it and the 8700K trailing it.
POV-Ray or Persistence of View Raytracer allows users to create 3D graphics. We use it to test both 1T and nT performance of CPUs as it renders out as fixed workload.
Here we see the duo of the 10th gen parts taking top spots in the 1T test. The 9900K falls right in between them with the 10980XE trailing. This is one of the first times we have seen both of the 10th gen CPUs take a spot above the 3900X from the Ryzen team.
Expanding to the nT test, and we quickly see things reshuffle to the status quo. The 3900X steps ahead of the 10900K, while the 10600K shows more of the same as it falls in between the 3600X and the 8700K.
Corona Render is a photorealistic renderer that can be integrated into several popular 3D modeling applications. It can also be used as a standalone application, which is what we opted for to best control variables.
Corona Render gives us a more competitive result for the new 10th gen chips. Here we see the 10900K match the 3900X, while the 10600K is breathing down the neck of the 3600X, which has had a solid lead over the 10600K for most of the tests thus far.
7-Zip is an open-source and free compression application. IT works well with multi-threading and also can see gains from clock speed as well.
Here with the compression suite, we see that the flagship 109000K has a similar showing or more of the same. The 10600K, however, once again pulls a win here, bypassing the 3600X and even the 9900K for an excellent result.
WebXPRT is a browser-based test, and we like this test as this is one of the areas not many think to test. This also happens to be a real-world usage test that can be impacted by the mitigations which have recently rolled through and were patched.
WebXPRT shows us the two new 10th gen chips topping the charts, as the 10900K pulls well ahead of every other platform tested, while the 10600K takes a spot almost 18 points behind the 10900K. This is still good enough for the 10600K to outpace the 3900X and every other CPU tested.
