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 XFX Qick319 RX 7600 XT Black scored a 11348. This put it out in front of the RTX 4060 and a health gap between it and even the overclocked RX 7600.
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. For these tests I did have to switch to the launch driver, there was an issue with the pre-launch driver with Blender. AMD cards aren’t really known for their Blender performance and that hasn’t changed at all here. The XFX Qick319 RX 7600 XT Black is actually just behind the stock-clocked RX 7600, all of the overclocked RX 7600 did worse as well and all of those cards including the 6650 XT are down at the bottom of the chart for Blender 3.5 and 3.6.
