Corona Renderer Benchmark Results [Updated]

CG Director Author Alex Glawionby Alex Glawion   /  Updated 

Corona has become a popular Render Engine which is available for 3ds Max, Cinema 4D and as a standalone Application.

Although many modern Render Engines have gone the route of GPU support, Corona has stayed faithful to being a full-blown CPU-based Renderer only.

The following list shows what performance modern and popular CPUs can achieve in Corona (higher is better):
