Now some people don’t need a video card for gaming, they need the processing power for rendering or 2D/3D production or in some cases people who game also do work on the side. So it is also important to check out the compute performance on all of the video cards that come in. That includes doing a few different tests. My first test was a simple GPU Compute benchmark using Passmark’s Performance Test 9. No big surprises if you have been paying attention to the other results. The 2060 SUPER came in a little behind the overclocked and FE RTX 2070s but ahead of the overclocked RTX 2060 and the reference clocked RTX 2070. This was still behind the GTX 1080 and the 1070 Ti as well as the Vega 64 though.
Blender is the most important of our tests here as it is an extremely popular 3D rendering program and all of the RTX cards do extremely well in Blender and this was no different, as you can see the 2060 SUPER is right up near the top of the charts just behind the 2070 FE.
With Basemark I ran their Compute benchmarks in both DX12 and OpenGL, the 2060 SUPER is up near the top of the charts here once again with all of the RTX cards with of course the 2070 FE ahead of it and the overclocked 2060 well behind.
I feel like I’m repeating myself over and over, but once again the 2060 SUPER was right up with the RTX 2070 FE with a big gap between it and even the overclocked RTX 2060 in the Geekbench OpenCL benchmark.
