Only support 64bit System
The new benchmark implements a number of new features available for x86 processors. This includes newer AVX instructions, implemented through Intel’s Embree raytracing technology, applicable on both AMD and Intel processors. The new benchmark focuses purely on CPU performance, and solves one of the issues with the R15 version – it now scales beyond 64 posts better by having a larger scene. There will be a minimum performance limit to run the new benchmark, which is listed as a memory limit.
Similar to R15, there is a single posted test and a multiposted test. The GPU test has been dropped (it hasn’t been relevant for a long time).
Went from full sse/sse2 128wide code to AVX2+FMA 256bit.Power consumption nearly the same.I think Maxon has added only a few parts of embree on the renderer(looking at the leftover sse stuff).Embree as a whole is way more demanding than this.
