[Phoronix]AMD Radeon VII Linux Benchmarks - Powerful Open-Source Graphics For Compute & Gaming

AMD Radeon VII Linux Benchmarks - Powerful Open-Source Graphics For Compute & Gaming

Quote:
With the OpenGL games tested, the Radeon VII was able to outperform the GeForce RTX 2080 in many instances. With Vulkan games when using the Mesa 19.0 RADV driver, the performance of the Radeon VII competed with the RTX 2080 too but in some games came in lower albeit still generally above the RTX 2070. The slightly less competitive Vulkan performance may be due using RADV as the more common but less official AMD Vulkan Linux driver. I'll be posting some AMDVLK tests in the coming days for looking at the performance there.

When it came to the OpenCL compute performance, the Radeon VII performed very well paired with the ROCm 2.0 release. The OpenCL performance was great and generally ahead of the NVIDIA RTX 2080 OpenCL Linux performance.
This is a Blender card that also plays games. The 2080 is the other way around. Buy accordingly.

The Performance Benefits To Running AMD's Radeon VII With Linux 5.0 + Mesa 19.0

I calculated the odds of this succeeding versus the odds I was doing something incredibly stupid... and I went ahead anyway.

If it's not coming out for the PC, it's dead to me.

A GPU is a GPU, the Turing architecture was designed for deep learning and it can also play games.

Did you even read the article? That's about the most absurd thing said ever on OCN......a gpu is a gpu Wut?

Very impressed to see Vega VII within 25w average power draw of the 2080 under Linix. Clearly Vega has more compute horsepower than the 2080.

No, you're not taking me literal enough. When I say Blender I really do mean Blender. LTT's numbers showed the 2080TI losing to a Vega64 in specifically Blender, and outright getting embarrassed by one of these. And it plays games. If that appeals to you(it actually does to me) you might wanna start saving just in case AMD decides to do another run of these. But my priority this year is a Ryzen 3000 base-rig. The GPU/display is secondary.

LTT most likely didn't use a CUDA accelerated version of Blender that support the RTX cards.

Radeon VII are just chips that failed ECC verification. Vega 20 was designed for deep learning and HPC. Vega 20 support was built ground up on linux using the ROCm stack and drivers. There are a ton of task that Vega 20 surpasses nVidia but Blender isn't one.

Edit: I want to add the Radeon VII is a great value for both single precision training along with scientific research that uses double precision. Which the architecture was designed for with the instinct cards.

Actually this card was designed for prototype self-driving development.

I couldn't disagree more. The VII produces very good results for gaming. Not matching a 2080 for a 30+ game average doesn't mean it's categorically NOT a gaming card. It beats its nVidia counterpart in some games, and that's more than what previous generations managed to do.

It would make no sense for me to buy it because I have a G-sync monitor and I actually believe in DLSS, but I would consider it if that were not the case.

5-7% slower which can literally change depending on the games used to benchmark.

Also depending on the renderer used. From the article:

Quote:
This boost with 7nm Vega was enough to put its harmonic mean right behind the GeForce RTX 2080: the RTX 2080 had just a 4% lead over the Radeon VII... Certainly if just looking at OpenGL-powered games, the Radeon VII average would come out ahead of the RTX 2080 while with Vulkan it was more of mixed results around this similarly priced graphics card.
It would appear that on Linux, the OpenGL code path is more performant in the AMD drivers than in the NVIDIA drivers, where as with Vulkan they are trading blows.
