Lenovo ThinkStation P920 Tower hashcat64
hashcat64 is a password cracking benchmarks that can run an impressive number of different algorithms. We used the windows version and a simple command of hashcat64 -b. Out of these results, we used five results in the graph. Users who are interested in hashcat can find the download here.
Hashcat can put a heavy load on GPUs, and here we see the dual-fan graphics cards have the edge in our results. Dual GPU’s in NVLINK simply outperform any other configurations.
Security research is another potential use case for such a large machine, so we wanted to see how these types of applications run on such a high-end system.
Lenovo ThinkStation P920 Tower Rendering Related Benchmarks
Next, we wanted to get a sense of the rendering performance of the Lenovo ThinkStation P920 Tower.
Arion Benchmark is a standalone render benchmark based on the commercially available Arion render software from RandomControl. The benchmark is GPU-accelerated using NVIDIA CUDA. However, it is unique in that it can run on both NVIDIA GPUs and CPUs.
Download the Arion Benchmark from here. First-time users will have to register to download the benchmark.
Like our first set of benchmarks, there is but a slight difference between the Quadro RTX 8000 NVLINK and Titan RTX NVLINK.
MAXON Cinema4D 3D
ProRender is an OpenCL based GPU renderer which is available in MAXON’s Cinema4D 3D animation software. A fully functional 42-day trial version is available for downloaded from the MAXON website here. Note: Even after expiration, the trial can still be used to measure render times.
With a two-second difference, the Quadro RTX 8000 NVLINK ranks ahead of the Titan RTX NVLINK.
OctaneRender from Otoy is an unbiased GPU renderer using the CUDA API. The latest release, OctaneRender 4, introduces support for out of core geometry. Octane is available as a standalone rendering application, and a demo version is available for downloaded from the OTOY website here.
Again, we see a one-second difference, and the Quadro RTX 8000 NVLINK ranks ahead of the Titan RTX NVLINK.
Redshift is a GPU-accelerated renderer with production-quality. A demo version of this benchmark can be found here.
NVIDIA Quadro RTX 8000 NVLINK finishes 5 seconds behind the Titan RTX NVLINK, which has better cooling.
Next, we will have power consumption, thermals, and our final thoughts.
