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 PURE RX 7900 GRE didn’t do as well here, scoring 18341, 546 points lower than the Hellhound which is interesting. This was enough to drop it down below the RTX 4070.


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 PURE RX 7900 GRE and really all of the Radeon cards struggle with Blender when compared to where Nvidia is at right now. The PURE RX 7900 GRE did come in ahead of the Hellhound and sitting behind the RX 6950 XT but to put that into perspective, those cards are all behind the RTX 3060 Ti.
