Share your Blackmagic RAW Speed Test ! Benchmarking

PostThu Nov 16, 2023 11:18 pm

Hi editors,

I figured it'd be interesting if we all share our .BRAW Blackmagic RAW Speed Test results on our different workstations. This test software provided by Blackmagic Design is launching a lot of decoding of a sample .braw file that is the same for everyone, in different resolutions / compression ratio / CPU vs. GPU. Those benchmarks will help us :
  • see differences of performance with a benchmark more adapted to our usual workloads (compared to benchmark online who are not made for video editing but more for gaming)
  • identify if something is wrong with our current setup by comparing with others who have similar computers
  • be able to know what to expect and this could influence their next computer purchase decision

I'll start with some of my workstations and then describe the methodology to follow so we all follow the same process to try to get more consistent results :

Some benchmarks made by others are already available online, for example https://techgage.com/news/testing-out-8 ... teen-cpus/ they get on BRAW 8K 8:1 (note that the : 34 fps AMD Ryzen 3700X, 50 fps AMD Ryzen 3900X, 39 fps Intel i9-9900K.

Methodology to produce the screenshot to share here :

  1. Install latest Blackmagic RAW 3.4 from here https://www.blackmagicdesign.com/suppor ... al-cameras and update your latest GPU Drivers if you can. If you're on a laptop, make sure your battery is full and you're plugged in
  2. Restart computer, don't open your usual apps, disconnect internet, on Windows open Blackmagic RAW player, go in the About and make sure you are running version 3.4 then run BRAW Speed Test, on macOS you can directly run BRAW Speed Test and go in the About of the BRAW Speed Test and check it is version 3.4
  3. Do not touch any setting on the middle gear above the Start button (keep it at BRAW 8K 12:1, the default value)
  4. Click that big red button START !
  5. Wait that the whole test suite gets properly benchmarked (we're actually more interested in the results inside the table below !) with all the resolutions
  6. Once finished click on the gear icon above the START button to stop the tests and click Save Screenshot (it's better than using your own screenshot tool so we get consistent screenshot images, for example without macOS drop shadow)
  7. Post your screenshot here with a description of your workstation (CPU, GPU, Disk Drive, RAM, OS version etc.), if you're using CUDA, Metal or OpenCL to decode on your GPU

Waiting for your results !

Thanks for your tests Uli and Eric ! Something's def wrong with my latest Windows workstation, both my CPU and GPU underperform :( . M3 Max is insane !

This thread already is useful, it made me realize how seriously bad my computer was. I've changed my motherboard, now dual channel DDR5 2x32 GB is working, both CPU and GPU perform as they should and this BRAW Speed Test finally gives REAL results, instead of 72 / 103 fps I get 125-130 fps for the CPU and 132-141 fps with CUDA, on par with benchmark results from Eric Sorensen / MrRipfrog (Thanks Eric !) :

Dissapointing result, but improved after enabling resizable BAR.

I’d assume that the ARC is not yet showing its full potential with BM.

Edward,

Have you enabled resizable BAR? You Motherboard may or may not support this, but I gained about a 60 to 70 percent jump in GPU performance across the board after I did. It might not help the CPU scores, but I bet it will drastically improve the GPU side of things.

Thanks Nico for the benchmark. Thanks Cpuraider / Paul Eaton for mentioning BAR, actually it's the opposite for me, disabling BAR in my BIOS gives me a boost, once I disable it go from 132-141 fps with CUDA to 162 - 171 fps (see results below). Note that others CPU and GPU benchmarks stay the same whether I have BAR or not. Maybe there's something special about how the .braw frame is uploaded to the GPU for further decoding.

It would be interesting to link results of those tests to performance of DaVinci Resolve / Adobe Premiere Pro with BMD Blackmagic RAW plugin and BRAW Studio

It seems that the BMRAW SPEED test is currently utilizing the Ryzen Integrated graphics instead of the Intel GPU. Nevertheless, the Ryzen 3200G is considered a relatively underpowered processor, largely due to its significantly limited memory bandwidth. Temporarily disable the R3 3200G GPU from the Devices List to ensure that the test runs using the correct GPU.

Wow it's insane that a RX6800 XT beats my 4090 on a hackintosh ! Would be interesting to know what results you get on Linux or Windows using the same hardware. Maybe the Metal parts of the BRAW SDK are very well optimized also

Hi

My contribution, running Blackmagic RAW Speed Test Ver 3.6.1

Workstation APY: Intel i9 14900K / 64 GB RAM - DDR5 / Nvidia RTX A4000 (Ampere Architecture) / Windows 11 Pro

Just for fun ;)

Of course, we like to see the numbers on the "tachometers"
So there are the results, for the 4 tests respectively: 8K 3:1 / 6K 3:1 / 4K 3:1 / HD 3:1
