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 7600 Gaming OC 8G did outperform both of the other RX 7600 by a good margin. It was enough to put it right up behind the RTX 4060 but not enough to pass either 4060 tested.
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 7600 Gaming OC 8G, like with all of the AMD cards struggled here. The overclocked 7600 was right with the reference RX 7600 but for comparison with Nvidia’s card, all of the RX 7600 were well below even the older RTX 3050.
