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 RX 7700 XT Pulse scored a 15812. This put it in behind the 7800 XT and in front of the 4060 Ti 8GB.


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 RX 7700 XT Pulse sits behind the 7800 XT in both 3.5 and 3.6. In the 3.5 results the RX 7700 XT Pulse is ahead of the RTX 3050 and way down in the chart with Nvidia pretty much dominating things. All of the AMD cards really struggle in Blender and that isn’t any different for the RX 7700 XT Pulse.
