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 4060 Ti Founders Edition did surprisingly well here, not only going much better than the 3060 Ti and the 3070 but it is also well out in front of the RTX 3070 Ti as well with its score of 14899, getting close to the 6800 XT which is the next card ahead of it.
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 4060 Ti Founders Edition once again outperformed the RTX 3070 Ti in the combined scores. It did better in the Monster and Classroom tests but was slower than the 3070 Ti and the 3070 in the Junkshop test.
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 4060 Ti Founders Edition is close but just ahead of the RTX 3070 in both the RTX and non-RTX benchmarks.
For 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 4060 Ti Founders Edition comes in ahead of the RTX 370 by 128 points on the RTX version of the test but without RTX on the CUDA-based test the 3070 trades places with it and comes out just slightly ahead by 13 points.
