Redshift is a GPU-based rendering engine, now owned by Maxon and available bundled with Cinema 4D – as well as in the form of plug-ins for other 3D applications. It was written to use NVIDIA’s CUDA graphics programming language, and since NVIDIA recently refreshed their GeForce series with new 2060, 2070, and 2080 “SUPER” cards we thought it would be a good time to re-test the whole RTX lineup.
Metashape 1.5.1: NVIDIA GeForce, Titan, and AMD Radeon Performance Comparison
Metashape, formerly known as PhotoScan, is a photogrammetry program that takes a set of images and combines them to create a 3D model or map. Processing of those images into point clouds and 3D meshes/textures is time-consuming, heavily using a computer’s CPU and GPU. We have recently updated our benchmark tools to support Metashape, along with new image sets to test, so now we are taking a look at how different NVIDIA and AMD video cards perform in this application.
RealityCapture 1.0.3: NVIDIA GeForce and Titan Performance Comparison
RealityCapture, like other photogrammetry applications, is built to take a batch of photographs and turn them into digital, 3D models. The many steps involved in that process can take a lot of time, and utilize both the CPU and GPU at different points. We recently put together a benchmark tool for RealityCapture, and after looking at processor performance last week we are now diving into a comparison of the current NVIDIA GeForce and Titan video cards.
Premiere Pro CC 2019: AMD Radeon VII vs NVIDIA GeForce RTX
Depending on the number of GPU-accelerated effects you use, a higher-end GPU can give you a nice performance boost in Premiere Pro. But what will give you the best performance for your dollar? An NVIDIA GeForce RTX video card, or one of AMD’s Radeon cards?
DaVinci Resolve 15: AMD Radeon VII 16GB Performance
The Radeon VII is a very interesting card for DaVinci Resolve due to its 16GB of VRAM which is twice what you would get from a similarly priced NVIDIA GPU. But is it able to keep up in terms of raw performance?
After Effects CC 2019: AMD Radeon VII 16GB Performance
While After Effects is starting to utilize the GPU more and more, it currently is almost always limited by the performance of your CPU. So while AMD’s Radeon VII is an extremely robust card with twice the VRAM as a comparably priced NVIDIA GeForce card, will Ae actually be able to take advantage of its power?
Photoshop CC 2019: AMD Radeon VII 16GB Performance
AMD’s Radeon VII is an extremely robust card on paper, having twice the VRAM as a comparably priced NVIDIA GeForce card. However, while 16GB of video memory is nice, it is rarely required for Photoshop. Does the Radeon VII have a performance advantage in Photoshop as well, or is going with NVIDIA still a better option?
Lightroom Classic CC 2019: Enhanced Details GPU Performance
In the latest version of Lightroom Classic CC (8.2), Adobe has added a new featured called “Enhanced Details” which uses machine learning to improve the quality of the debayering process for RAW images. This is very GPU-intensive, so we wanted to see exactly how much faster it can be on a modern, high-end GPU.
DaVinci Resolve 15: NVIDIA Titan RTX Performance
The new NVIDIA Titan RTX has a stunning 24GB of video memory, making it very attractive for many editors and colorists working with 8K media. But is the extra VRAM all it has going for it or is it also significantly faster than something like the RTX 2080 Ti 11GB?
