    Wanted to submit a score for a Microsoft Surface Pro 4 Tablet

    Surface Pro 4
    i7 6650U 2.20Ghz
    16GB Ram

    Windows 10 x64
    ZBrush 4R7 Patch3 x64

    Single Thread Timer = 2.731
    Multi Thread Timer = 1.189987
    Multithreading performance = 229%
    Multithreaded IS recommended for this system

    Default Double xeon - Multithreading

    build a new workstation and it looks like Zbrush doesn't work with double CPU's (Xeon e5 v4) ? or is it just me ?
    loads only one of them and I get 50% load in the task manager on heavy loads
    Max threads I can set in preferences is 40 as well


    We just encountered something like this with another user who had an incredible number of cores. He set ZBrush to use a max of 16 cores per CPU and said it then worked like a champ.

    I'm looking to upgrade from my laptop to a proper desktop.
    Anyway here are my current (old) machine's specs and score:

    Medion x7817
    intel i7 3610 QM @2,3 Ghz (3,3 Ghz on turbo)
    12GB RAM 1333Mhz
    500GB hdd @7200 RPM

    I get
    Single Thread Timer 3.35
    Multi Thread Timer 1.05

    I'd love to see any Ryzen rigs score while waiting for Threadripper

    From what I remember, doesn't ZBrush only use about 8 threads effectively, and after that, it's a sharp falloff? That is probably why you don't see ZBrush saturating your entire system.

    Hiya!

    Just finished building a new Workstation Rig.

    AMD Ryzen7 1800x
    64GB DDR4
    AMD FirePro W9100 (32gb)

    I get....

    Single = 2.742
    Multi = 0.617982
    Multithreading = 443%

    @pming

    Strange... your single thread performance is on the same level as CarterTG's Surface Pro 4 i7 6650U 2.20Ghz (16GB Ram, Windows 10 x64, ZBrush 4R7 Patch3 x64)

    Multi is much better but that's to be expected.

    Your scores are also pretty much in-line with what Invertex posts here about his i7 5820k at stock speeds.
    That's not bad but I was expecting better.

    Anyway, thanks for the numbers!

    I wonder how this benchmark reflects real performance when sculpting.
    Maybe we should share a ZPR (that would make sure we had the same project settings) and test some common taxing operations like zremeshing, dynameshing etc.
    Is there a way to accuratemy measure fps in ZBrush? That would be useful - knowing how laggy it gets at what point count...

    cheers

    I built this workstation about a year ago. Thought I'd post results with zbrush 4r8p1
    Windows 7 x64
    Dual Xeon E5-2690 @ 2.9Ghz (3.8GHz Turbo Boost) - 8 hyper threaded cores per CPU = 32 cores total
    64 GB ram quad channel ram

    single thread - 3.519
    multi thread - 0.4429
    multi thread performance - 794%

    For me, zbrush uses all cores on both of my CPUs when doing intensive things like dynamesh (only if project is turned on), project all and rotating around a multi million poly model.

    Hmm..

    On a core i980x/24GB RAM I get pretty decent scores

    Single Threaded Timer = 3.1
    Multi Threaded Timer = 0.68
    Multithreading = 452%

    Considered upgrading (after almost 8 years) to a Ryzen 1800x but seeing ZBrush performance on it is only like a few percent better on it I'm not so sure any more.
    Not even sure though what this benchmark exactly does measure. To me brush performance would be the most important part.

    Yeah this is a lot worse than I was expecting.. The 5820k came out in 2014 and is cheaper, yet beats the 1800X which just came out.

    Given such results, I would highly recommend anyone coming across this thread to consider an Intel i7 8700k which is around 20% faster than a Ryzen 1800x in general work, and around $90 cheaper. But, if ZBrush performance is your primary focus, then go with the Intel i7 7800X, which has quad channel memory for higher memory bandwidth which ZBrush needs as much as it can get (use 4 or 8 memory sticks to utilize quad channel) and is more than $100 cheaper than the AMD 1800X.

    Thats very interesting seems like the ryzen really aren't performing well in zbrush, thats disappointing. Does anyone know what tasks uses single thread and what uses multi thread. im looking to build a new rig that could handle as much tris in a ztool as possible. i have the 5820 right now, if i can find something that can improve the performnce of zbrush by at least 50% id be happy.

    Hiya!

    My new Maingear system is awesome. Expensive as a new car...but awesome!

    Ran several checks on different days. Average is about...

    Single = 2.4
    Multi = .3
    MT Performance = 770%

    One thing interesting...I can't up the "Max Threads" past 44. Oh well...still rocks on toast!

    Dual Xeon E5-2699 v4, 3600 MHz (36 x 100)
    128gb ECC DDR4-2400
    AMD FirePro W9100 (32gb)

    So far I've found Keyshot, MODO, Maya, Houdini and Blender utilize all 88 threads to render. And, I must admit, I do get a little bit har...."excited"
    Now my Ryzen build, with an 11gb 1080Ti I use for gaming on my 65" QEHD 4k TV. Sweeeeeet!

    ^_^

    Stick to the 5820k for now, no current upgrades will give you the performance boost you want unless you're willing to pay thousands. If you haven't overclocked your 5820k though, there is a lot of performance to gain there without you paying more money.

    hi all,

    I was for awile looking for information to decide between 7900x and a threadripper.
    Seems that Zbrush likes INTEL cores better than AMD. at leas for now or there is some kind problem with AMD XFR. (hyperthread)


    end up with a I9 7900X

    and here are the Zbench redsults @ 4.3ghz.



    Single Thread Timer= 1.934999
    Multi Thread Timer= 0.31

    Multithreading performance= 624%

    also found some:

    AMD Threadripper 1950x result to compare:

    Single Thread Timer= 2.624
    Multi Thread Timer= 0.490997

    Multithreading performance= 534%
