Is your CPU performing as it should? Was that GPU upgrade really worth it? Can your machine even handle V-Ray? It can be hard to know if your hardware is
performing as intended, especially when you don’t have a reference point. And that’s where benchmarking comes in handy. Today I’m gonna show you how to benchmark
your hardware with V-Ray for free. That’s coming up. Hello YouTube. I am Kevin The Dane, and on this channel I’m
giving you tips, tricks and tutorials, to help you master V-Ray and 3ds Max. Today I have a quick tip for you, on how to
benchmark your CPU and GPU with V-Ray. And the best part is, it’s free, and you
don’t even need a copy of V-Ray for this to work. All we really need is a webbrowser. So jump over into your favorite browser and
get ready – unless ofcourse your favorite browser is Internet Explorer, then go download
Google Chrome first. Pst.. It was just a joke. Just start by following the link in the description
to V-Rays benchmark tool. If you are not logged in to your ChaosGroup
account, you will be prompted to do so. If you don’t have an account, you can just
create one. You don’t have to be a customer to do this. When you are logged in, click the download
button, and just wait for the download to finish. Run the file, and it will pop up with some
terms. It looks just like the V-Ray installer, but
it won’t install anything, so just speed-read all this stuff and click “I Agree”. The application will now run, and you will
see a couple of timers and two checkbuttons. You can choose to benchmark only your CPU,
or just the GPU, or run both in sequence. Hit the Start button, and the Benchmark begins. It’s a good idea to refrain from using the
computer while the benchmark is running – to not put unnecessary strain on the system. When the first scene is done rendering on
the CPU, then the next scene will render on the GPU – and when both are done you have
your results. I’d like to think that the scenes are similar
in complexity, and that we can compare the CPU to the GPU directly – but I can’t
find any info on that, so this is just conjecture on my part. Now, you can choose to share the results,
and then you are taken to the benchmark page on the ChaosGroup’s website. Here you can see your scores, contra scores
from other people. It’s sorted after CPU speed pr. default. But you can just switch to GPU if you are
more interested in that. We see here, that the Quadro M6000 is performing
similarly to a GTX 1070. If we wanna compare it to other cards of the
same type, we just use the search field to filter the results. Bear in mind, that some entries have multiple
GPUs in the system, so you need to look for test results with the same amount of Cards
as your own system, if you wanna compare the two. We see here, that the other M6000s are ever
so slightly faster than mine. Perhaps this is due my card being used for
capture at the same time… If you haven’t tried out V-Ray yet, you
can go ahead and get a free trial right here on the chaos groups website. I really hope that you learned something today. And if you did, why not pay it forward and
share this video with your struggling artist friends, that we may lift each other up and… Arhh, you know what I mean. And as always, don’t forget to like, subscribe,
share, tweet, whatever floats your boat. Aaaaaaand cut!

    awesome!! I have to try this right now. Btw when using vray 3.6 RT on GPU, the matte shadow material doesn't go fully transparent and give a clean alpha. Instead I get a dark shadow like thing throughout. Am I doing something wrong? Help? Thx

    I currently have a gtx 1070 8gb, I was wondering if I add another 1070 will it increase my gpu rendering performance?

    Very helpful. Here have a thumbs up!

    5930 k : 01: 55 time
    980ti : 01 :16 time

    why nothing's changed ;?

    Hi sir… im an undergraduate architecture student.. i would like to keep learning about vray rendering using sketchup… i dont have a very good idea what computer parts should i get.. can i have a little help form you.. for fast and easy rendering.. thank you

    Hi Kevin, great videos man !!Just a quick one, I have planned to purchase a new hardware for work (Revit, 3ds max with Vray or Corona, Lumion, …) This is the one I have in mind would like to have your opinions please.

    Hey Kevin! Great Video. I have a question, though: So I tried the V-Ray Benchmark online app you suggest in this video, and my CPU seems to be rendering pretty good (04:48), but when rendering with my GPU it crashes every time giving me the "Display driver stopped responding and has recovered" error message at 00:02. My gear is: Dell Precision M3800 Workstation – Windows 7 64-bit – Haswell HM87 – mSATA 128GB Internal SSD – Intel Core i7 4850HQ processor – NVIDIA Quadro K1100M 2GB GDDR5 – 16GB DDR3L 1600MHz RAM. So is my Quadro card broken or is my rig not compatible with or strong enough for V-Ray? Thanks!
