This page provides answers to some frequently asked questions about V-Ray Benchmark.

How do I get V-Ray Benchmark?

You can download V-Ray Benchmark from the download section of the Chaos Group website.

Do I need to have V-Ray licensed and installed? 

No. V-Ray Benchmark runs standalone and does not require an installation or license of V-Ray.

Can I use my own scene?

No. You will not be able to provide your own .vrscene for benchmarking so that the benchmark scores are comparable across all users; therefore we have locked in the scenes and conditions for this benchmark.

Does it work with non-CUDA enabled GPUs?

No. V-Ray Benchmark will only work on CUDA-enabled devices for testing GPU rendering, as GPU rendering in V-Ray only works on CUDA.

Can I select/disable specific GPU devices?

Yes. You can use checkboxes under the V-Ray GPU section in the Benchmark menu. Alternatively, for command-line usage, the --w/--with-devices flag can be used.

 

 

You can select devices by ticking the checkbox in the GUI application

vray-benchmark-4.10.03-cli.exe --quiet --mode vray-gpu --with-devices 0,1

Command-line usage

 

Why can't I select my GPU device?

A GPU device may appear grayed out if there is a problem with its driver.

 

If you try to enable the grayed out device, you will get a message about the current driver version and a suggestion to update it in order to proceed with the benchmark process.

 

 

The same message will appear the first time you start a test with a disabled GPU device. You will have the option to run the test anyway, excluding the disabled driver.

Why is my Operating System slow during GPU tests?

This is normal. By default V-Ray Benchmark will use all available GPU devices to run the GPU test (if not specified otherwise).

Where can I compare results?

You can compare results from other user's benchmarks on the Benchmark website here. Any scores you run and submit through the V-Ray Benchmark will appear on this site as well. Any updates to your scores when you run the benchmarks again will update your existing scores on that site.

Can I submit my results being in a proxy server network?

Yes, but you will need to enable the Bypass proxy server for local addresses option from the LAN Settings window.
