SPECviewperf 13

SPECviewperf 13 measures the 3D graphics performance of systems running under the OpenGL and Direct X application programming interfaces. We have now broken down our SPECviewperf graphs into separate categories for ease of viewing performance results.

As drivers improve, we should see continued performance increases in this benchmark. In the first chart for SPECviewperf, we find the AMD Radeon RX 6800 performance is generally good with performance levels at, or above the RTX 3000 series in many tests. In others, NVIDIA was significantly ahead.

Charting everything on the same graphic became too busy. Where that distinction would have been lost. Hopefully, this helps a bit with making the charts more readable.

Next, we will have 3DMark results before moving on to power consumption, thermals, and our final thoughts.

  1. Will you include video encoding benchmarks? Given how popular Plex is in the home lab space, I would expect video encoding to be very relevant.

  2. Wanna know the real dirty little secret woth your new card, William? ROCm does not support RDNA GPUs. The last AMD consumer cards that ROCm supported was the Vega 56/64 and it’s 7nM die shrink the VII.

    You got a RX5000 or RX6000 series card or any version of APU, well you get to use OpenCL. Aren’t you lucky?

    nVidia supported CUDA on every GPU since at least the 8800GT. I can’t imagine how AMD expects to get ROCm out of the upcoming national labs when the only modern card it will work on is the mi100. Ever try to buy an mi100 (or mi50)? It is basically possible to find an AMD reseller that will even condescend to speak to a small ISV.

  3. I find all these reviews and release news for both AMD and Nvidia card a joke at the moment, as an end user I can’t ever find any in stock no matter how deep my pockets!!

    I’m not just talking about STH

  4. Pure junk selling, USA warranty evading, AMD still owes me a video board since I did not even get a 1/2 year of performance from the 3 very poorly designed and QA, Vega Frontier Editions.
    AMD wanting all the selfish benefits of consumer sales, but none of the mature responsibilities.

  5. The replacement warranty boards from AMD all junk. The first not lasting more than 2 days without crashing (BSD), the second, having waited ~1 mth, just 1 day then crashing. I having the impression, no one watching AMD, hey simply return “defective boards” as replacements, then wash their foul hands, not honoring anything, their word to then not respecting customer.
    Worst, this company then sought to abuse USA Consumer Protection Laws by expecting their customers in the USA to send the defective product OUT OF COUNTRY, having no USA depot.
