Houdini Benchmark Cores vs Clockspeed (updated)

Something that's gonna face every artist building a new rig, which is better a fast cpu or more cores. Well let's find out, I'll focus more on simulation tasks (Pyro,Grain,ocean).

This chart is going to be up to date, so I'll really appreciate it if you ran the tests as well and shared your results, I'll list them asap with your name ;)

You can download the three test files here.

One small favor to ask from you, if you like what you find here and wanna me keep going please do consider supporting me on Patreon, and it wont be for free since you will be rewarded with access to alot of setup and tools I create, and the library is growing larger ;)

Back to the tests and all you have to do is:

  • Open the Hip file.

  • Dial in the resolution numbers as in the chart.

  • Go the performance monitor tab and hit record.

  • Hit go to the last frame.

  • Wait until the simulation is finished and grab the result from the performance monitor.

  • Done.

  • Note: Opencl is off in the files so leave it as is.

  • i7 6800K .
