Compute Benchmarks

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 10 and the RTX 4070 Amp Airo didn’t hit the full 1% improvement this time around with .8% over the 4070 FE this time around. This didn’t change anything on the charts overall with the 7900 XTX still above the 4070s and the 3080 sitting down below them.


Blender is always my favorite compute benchmark because the open-source 3D rendering software is very popular and it isn’t a synthetic benchmark. With the latest version of Blender, they redid the benchmark so we now have a new test that runs three different renderings and gives each a score. I have all three stacked together so we can see the overall performance. The RTX 4070 Amp Airo continued its 1% performance improvement over the 4070 Founders Edition in all three Blender renderings which put it up at the top of the 4070s but not far from the Ventus that did well here as well.


For CUDA-based cards, I also check out OctaneRender performance using their OctaneBench 2060.1 benchmark which allows me to check out both RTX and non-RTX rendering performance. Here the RTX 4070 Amp Airo improves on the Founder Editions scores by 1.1% for the RTX score and 1.7% on the base test.


An additional CUDA-based test I also ran V-Ray Benchmark 5 to check out CUDA and RTX performance in the 3D rendering and simulation software. The RTX 4070 Amp Airo once again tops the three RTX 4070s with both the V-Ray CUDA and RTX results. This wasn’t enough to catch up to the next card up which is the 3090 Ti, but it did pull away from the 3080 slightly.
