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 Radeon RX 7600 scored 10746 in Passmark’s GPU Compute test. This put it above the RTX 3060 by 305 points, a 2.9% improvement.
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 Radeon RX 7600 didn’t do as well here in comparison to the Nvidia cards with the RTX 3050 being faster even.
