Blender Benchmark Released for Testing Hardware

Category: General News
Posted: 08:55AM

There are many ways to test the performance of our computers and components, and now another has joined that list; the Blender Benchmark. As you can safely guess, the benchmark runs Blender to test performance, and just as Blender is open source under the GNU General Public License, so is this tool. Like other benchmarks, the data collected can be uploaded, with its destination being opendata.blender.org. There are not many results there yet, but what is there you can actually take and use as you wish. What data users allow to be public is available for others to take and use as it is license-free. Its formatting was also designed to be machine processable, to make it easy to put to your own uses, but you can also just use the website to analyze the results. If you visit the link you will be greeted by some graphs already, including the fastest CPU of those tested thus far.

Blender Benchmark is available for Windows, Mac, and Linux if you want to try it out. You can find the executable at the Blender Open Data link. (For Windows at least, what you download is a ZIP, not an installer.)
