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 and the RTX 2070 SUPER Gaming OC did really well here. The small overclock translated to a big bump in the score though it wasn’t enough to overtake the next fastest card, the Vega 64 LC.
My favorite compute test has to be Blender. It is a widely used program and there isn’t anything synthetic about the benchmark. It renders two different 3D files and times the total time. Here the extra overclock of the Gaming OC was actually able to edge past the original RTX 2080 surprisingly. Overall the Nvidia RTX cards really do well in this test and it shows with Nvidia dominating the top of the chart.
In Basemark the overclock didn’t make as much of a difference but it was still about 200 points on both DX12 and OpenGL tests keeping the Gaming OC right with the original RTX 2070 SUPER and below the RTX 2080.
Geekbench 4 was similar, with a small improvement but overall not enough to make any difference. The two RTX 2070 SUPER scores are well below the RTX 2080 and well above the 2060 SUPER results.
