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 Radeon RX 7800 XT scored a 16158. This put it right in between AMD's last generation cards with it ahead of the RX 6800 XT and behind the 6950 XT. All of the 4070s were ahead here but the Radeon RX 7800 XT was well out in front of the RTX 4060 Ti.


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. I tested the Radeon RX 7800 XT in both Blender 3.5 and the newer Blender 3.6. In 3.5 we get a good look at how it stands against the competition and the Radeon RX 7800 XT is sitting behind the 6800 XT. Comparing against Nvidia is a lot harder because the Radeon RX 7800 XT’s closest Nvidia card is the RTX 3060 which is ahead of the 6800 XT. This is an area where Nvidia is way ahead because of the performance of Optix.
