Pro W6800X "single" versus other GPUs
August 17th, 2021 by rob-ART morgan, mad scientist
August 20th, added Pro W6900X MPX
We tested Pro W6800X Duo in single GPU mode versus other GPUs.
RX 6900 XT = Sapphire Nitro+ Radeon RX 6900 XT
Pro W6900X = Apple Radeon Pro W6900X MPX Module
RX 6800 XT = Sapphire Nitro+ Radeon RX 6800 XT
Pro W6800 = AMD Radeon Pro W6800
Pro W6800X = Apple Radeon Pro W6800X MPX Module
Pro Vega II = Apple Radeon Pro Vega II MPX Module
RX 5700 XT = Asus Radeon RX 5700 XT
VII = AMD Radeon VII
Testing Platform: 2019 Mac Pro, 3.3GHz 12-Core Xeon W CPU, 96GB RAM, macOS Big Sur 11.5.
Lightroom Classic - Enhance
Enhance 12 images. (LOWER time in Seconds = FASTER)
Octane X - Metal
Render Benchmark Trench. (LOWER time in Seconds = FASTER)
Using AMD's ProRender with BMW sample image. (LOWER time in Seconds = FASTER)
BasemarkGPU - Metal
Official Test at 4K resolution and HIGH Content Quality. (HIGHER Frames per Second = FASTER)
GFXBench - Metal
Aztec Ruins High Tier 1440p Offscreen. (HIGHER Frames per Second = FASTER)
TW: Warhammer II - Metal
Ran Skaven built-in benchmark at 3840x2160 High. (HIGHER Frames per Second = FASTER)
WHAT DID WE LEARN?
The Radeon Pro W6800X MPX Module is as fast or faster than the Pro Vega II MPX Module, RX 5700 XT, and VII, but slower than the Pro W6800, RX 6800 XT, Pro W6900X, and RX 6900 XT.
NOTE: We chose the Sapphire Nitro+ Radeon RX 6800 XT and Sapphire Nitro+ Radeon RX 6900 XT because they were both 12.2 inches long. Versions longer than that will not fit in the 2019 Mac Pro.
