GPU performance is a key component of Unreal Engine. Many Virtual Production and ArchViz users require features only found in Nvidia’s professional line of video cards. With the release of the new Nvidia RTX A6000, we can finally see what the latest professional hardware can offer.
AMD Radeon RX 6800 (XT) Review Roundup
The Radeon RX 6800 cards are here, with AMD boasting significant performance gains over the previous generation. We have looked at how the 6800 16GB and 6800 XT 16GB perform in a range of professional applications to help you decide whether they are worth using in a new workstation, or as an upgrade in your current system.
DaVinci Resolve Studio – AMD Radeon RX 6800 (XT) Performance
DaVinci Resolve has long been known for how well it utilizes the power of your GPU, with NVIDIA being the top performer for several years. However, with the recently released Radeon RX 6800 and 6800 XT, will AMD be able to match or beat NVIDIA in DaVinci Resolve?
Adobe Premiere Pro – AMD Radeon RX 6800 (XT) Performance
Adobe has been focusing fairly heavily on GPU performance in the latest versions of Premiere Pro, adding more GPU accelerated effects as well as GPU-based hardware encoding. While NVIDIA has help a strong performance lead in the past, AMD’s new Radeon 6800 cards are touted to have significant performance gains. Is this enough for AMD to take the performance crown in Premiere Pro?
Adobe After Effects – AMD Radeon RX 6800 (XT) Performance
The number of GPU accelerated effects in After Effects has increased in recent years, but it continues to be an application that is primarily CPU bottlenecked. However, AMD cards have in the past been slightly slower than their NVIDIA counterparts. Will the new Radeon RX 6800 and 6800 XT GPUs allow AMD to match or beat NVIDIA in After Effects?
Adobe Photoshop – AMD Radeon RX 6800 (XT) Performance
AMD recently launched their new Radeon RX 6800 and 6800 XT GPUs, but while Photoshop does have a number of effects that can utilize the GPU, there generally isn’t much of a performance difference between various cards. Will this hold true with the 6800 (XT), or will AMD take a lead in Photoshop?
PCI-Express 4.0 vs 3.0 Video Card Performance
PCI-Express has been the standard for connecting video cards and other expansion devices inside of computers for many years now, and several generations of the technology have now passed. With each of those generations, the amount of data that can be transferred over the PCIe connection has increased. How much impact does that have on modern video cards? Is there any benefit to running a PCIe 3.0 card in a 4.0 slot, or loss if using a 4.0 card in a 3.0 slot?
