Compute Benchmarks

I also did a few of our compute-focused tests, sadly there are a few issues to be found here. In the first test, the Passmark Performance Test compute benchmark the RTX 2070 fell on its face a bit. It was still faster than the GTX 1070, but I was expecting it to perform up in line with the GTX 1080 like in previous tests but it didn’t.


In V-Ray, however, the RTX 2070 did really welcoming in right with the RTX 2080 and the GTX 1080 Ti.


Now the Cinegy Cinescore test I added before the RTX launch has given me a few problems. Namely, it doesn’t like the AMD cards at all. But even when comparing Nvidia cards the three RTX cards have a list of Nvidia focused compression formats that fail. Because of this, the RTX cards get a lower score than expected. I still include the results though because people should be aware that there are a few issues still to be worked out.


The same goes for Blender where all three of the RTX cards fail. I spoke with Nvidia about this during the 2080 launch and they are waiting on Blender to recompile for CUDA10.

So based on your testing compared to my own in house testing with 3D Mark (I use 3D Mark as it gives a direct horse power to horse power comparative without brand specific optimizations getting in the way) the Sapphire Vega 56 is only about 3% slower but costs 20% less :-) NICE....

Just saying, you could send a Sapphire Vega 56 over and we can put those numbers down on the same system. We have been lacking the 56 for all of this testing :(
