Chaos Group recently released version 1.0.7 of V-Ray Benchmark, a free stand-alone application for testing hardware rendering speed. Now it supports not just Windows but also Mac OS and Linux. Moreover, new command-line interface was introduced. It allows running tests without a GUI. This is helpful for benchmarking render farms and cloud rendering hardware.

The benchmark includes two test scenes, one for GPUs and another for CPUs, depending on the processor type you’d like to measure. Then, simply launch the application and run the tests. After your tests are complete, you can see online how your hardware compares to others. It’s a good idea to note any special hardware modifications you’ve made like water cooling or overclocking.

V-Ray Benchmark application does not require a V-Ray license to run and can be downloaded from the Chaos Group website here.
