Benchmark Suite

CPU
Cinebench Release 20 This popular cross-platform benchmark examines both single- and multi-core performance.
Blender 2.8.2 We render the 230MB Cosmos Laundromat scene in this popular open-source creation suite.
V-Ray Next Another standalone application to help test how fast hardware renders.
Memory and Storage
AIDA64 Benchmark that accurately depicts memory bandwidth and latency.
CrystalDiskMark Free-to-use storage benchmark testing both sequential and random 4K drive performance.
GPGPU
AIDA64 Measures GPGPU compute performance using various OpenCL workloads.
V-Ray Next The free test is this time used to gauge GPU rendering performance.
System
PCMark 10 A comprehensive set of tests that cover the wide variety of tasks performed in the modern workplace.
VRMark With a 5K rendering resolution, the Blue Room test thoroughly examines a system's VR credentials.
3DMark We run Time Spy Extreme, a 4K DirectX 12 benchmark to test both GPU performance and stability.

CPU Temperature Core temperature recorded when idle and when rendering via Blender.
GPU Temperature GPU temperature recorded when idle and when running the 3DMark Time Spy Extreme stress test.
Noise System noise output measured when idle and when rendering via Blender.

Notes

There is little point in comparing the Corsair One Pro i200 with the high-end gaming PCs that typically pass through the HEXUS labs. To that end, we have built our own comparison workstation using a range-topping Intel Core i9-10980XE on an X299 platform carrying 64GB of quad-channel memory and, in keeping with the Corsair, a stock-clocked Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080 Ti Founders Edition graphics card. It won't have escaped your attention that the total cost of our 18-core self-build is less than the 14-core One Pro i200, albeit presented in a larger chassis and without Corsair's warranty.

Paving the way for additional workstation reviews in the near future, we have also introduced a new suite of benchmarks encompassing a wide range of professional workloads.
