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 3070 Ti SUPRIM X gained 185 points over the 3070 Ti Founders Edition which was enough to overtake the weird overclocked RTX 3070 result but still a drop in the bucket between the RTX 3070 Ti SUPRIM X and the RTX 3080.
In Basemark I test with the DirectX12 setting and again with OpenGL. The RTX 3070 Ti SUPRIM X gained 340 points over the Founders Edition in the DirectX 12 tests but came in lower in the OpenGL test making it a wash overall.
Blender is always my favorite compute benchmark because the open-source 3D rendering software is very popular and it isn’t a synthetic benchmark. Here I render two scenes and combine the total time it takes. The RTX 3070 Ti SUPRIM X improved on the RTX 3070 Ti Founders Editions Blender score by 1 second which wasn’t a huge jump but better than nothing. The same goes for its Optix results which were also one second faster. Optix itself though is a huge improvement over the normal CUDA performance in Blender with it being less than half of the time to render the same tasks.
