2018 MacBook Pro + Pro Vega 20
versus Pro 560X GPU

November 22nd, 2018, by rob-ART morgan, mad scientist
November 24th added LuxMark OpenCL and Valley OpenGL benchmarks

Here is an appetizer for Thanksgiving: the 2018 MacBook Pro with Pro Vega 20 GPU versus Pro 560X GPU running GFXBench Metal animations.

GFXBENCH METAL

The Aztec Ruins High Tier animation was run off-screen at 1440p. (HIGHER frames per second = FASTER)

GRAPH LEGEND
MacBook Pro Vega 20 = 2.9GHz 6-Core i9, 32G RAM, Pro Vega 20 GPU
MacBook Pro 560X = 2.9GHz 6-Core i9, 32G RAM, Pro 560X GPU

The GFXBench Metal Aztec Ruins Normal Tier animation was run off-screen at 1080p. (HIGHER score = FASTER)

The GFXBench Metal Car Chase animation was run off-screen at 1080p. (HIGHER score = FASTER)

LUXMARK OPENCL

LuxMark is a OpenCL cross-platform benchmark tool that offers three increasingly complex scenes that you can use to measure the render speed of your CPU or GPU in Samples per Second . (HIGHER KSamples per Second = FASTER)

VALLEY OPENGL

Unigine's Valley benchmark flys over 64 million square meters of extremely detailed seamless terrain. It makes 18 passes over different areas. (HIGHER Frames per Second = FASTER)

CONCLUSIONS

The 'silent' upgrade option of the Pro Vega 20 GPU for the 2018 MacBook Pro is clearly a winner. We will post more comparison graphs as we work through our test suite.
