RX 6800 XT vs. RTX 3080. Part 2/2: Non-gaming tests

3D rendering 1/2 (LuxMark and Blender@Cycles)

Without application/computational tests, graphics card tests would be incomplete. Therefore, we will focus on this area outside of gaming that most hardware magazines neglect. We understand the reasons, there are several of them, but even so, it is possible with a little effort to make at least a few measurements. So hopefully they will also help multimedia creators in choosing the right graphics card.

LuxMark

Test platform benchmark; API OpenCL; no extra settings.



Blender@Cycles

Test platform render BMW and Classroom; renderer Cycles, 12 tiles; extra settings are OpenCL for Radeon and CUDA for GeForce. The way most people will use it. OpenCL with GeForce is always slow because path tracing does not support GPU acceleration and is computed by the CPU. Nvidia OptiX is tested separately on supported cards (GeForce RTX) and the results are plotted in a separate graph.

Zen 4 has a thermal boost, too. 5.85 GHz only at sub 50 °C temps

It is often commented on that Intel processors (like the upcoming Raptor Lake) have many different boost modes with various conditions, for example the temperature-dependent Thermal Velocity Boost. But it turns out that the Ryzen 7000s have something similar. According to unofficial information the top Ryzen 9 7950X model will also reach its maximum frequency only at low temperatures – impractically low, even.

Zen 4 architecture: chip parameters and IPC of AMD’s new core

AMD formally launched the Ryzen 7000 (with availability four weeks away though) and confirmed specs and pricing. The company has also disclosed a considerable amount of technical details and more has now leaked from unofficial sources. So let’s have a deeper look at Zen 4 architecture, the 5nm chiplets of the processors and finally the core’s IPC – which has actually improved more than the previously promised +8 to 10 % over Zen 3.
