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 ROG Strix RTX 4080 SUPER came in right behind the Founders Edition here as well but still well out in front of the original RTX 4080.


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 ROG Strix RTX 4080 SUPER did really well here compared to the RTX 4080 SUPER Founders Edition with a big lead on it in both of the combined results.



For CUDA-based cards, I also check out OctaneRender performance using their OctaneBench 2060.1 benchmark which allows me to check out both RTX and non-RTX rendering performance. Here the ROG Strix RTX 4080 SUPER outperformed the Founders Edition by 8 points which comes out to just under 1% on both the total score and total score with RTX. Both were way ahead of the original RTX 4080 and still miles behind the RTX 4090.


For an additional CUDA-based test I also ran V-Ray Benchmark 5 to check out CUDA and RTX performance in the 3D rendering and simulation software. The ROG Strix RTX 4080 SUPER is sitting out in front of the Founders Edition here with a .8% improvement in both results. Both cards are still right up on but still in front of the original RTX 4080 here.
