Content creators are looking at what’s new AMD Radeon RX 7900 XTX can be a disappointment.
benchmarking GPU in popular content creation applications, Puget systems (opens in a new tab) it turned out that the latest AMD offer lags behind the standards set by the competing Nvidia.
The results agree with our own tests, where the graphics card remains a great option gaming computersbut the creative performance can best be described as “just ok”.
AMD Radeon RX 7900 XTX: Benchmarks
The Puget team tested the GPU by running a series video editing software, VFX softwareand 3D modeling software on Team Red’s most powerful graphics card.
DaVinci Resolve he was first. The free video editing software it is well-equipped to take advantage of high-end GPUs, and this is where the graphics card shined.
According to Puget, the 7900 XTX showed an overall performance increase of more than 30% over the older version Radeon 6900XT. It even overtook Nvidia GeForce RTX 4090 get to the top spot.
It also scored high in the H.264/HEVC and RAW debayer tests, outperforming the 6900 XT and roughly matching the RTX 4090.
Then a custom PC builder was tried Adobe Premiere Pro, which does not make much use of GPUs as a whole. Overall, it has increased performance by 22% over previous AMD GPUs. However, it failed to beat the RTX 4090 or 4080, with Puget noting that it was “more in line with the RTX 3080 and 3090 models.”
In Adobe After Effects, the 7900 XTX turned out to be a mid-range performer. As in other tests, performance was generally better than the 6900 XT but couldn’t keep up GeForce40803090 or 4090.
The card also didn’t perform well in Unreal Engine with mixed results when used alongside the best game development tool. The team found that “in rasterized workloads, the 7900 XTX performs quite well, nearly matching the slightly more expensive RTX 4080 in one test. But in another rasterized test, the 7900 XTX scored the lowest score of any card tested.”
Eventually, the 7900 XTX was used in the Blender 3D rendering software. And that makes for a bleak read, as the GPU “can’t match the rendering power of the NVIDIA GeForce RTX series.” While GPU rendering showed a performance increase of 70% over AMD’s RX 6900 XT, Nvidia’s RTX 4080 was found to be almost three times faster.
In the final analysis, Puget Systems suggested that while some content creation tasks would benefit from an AMD Radeon RX 7900 XTX card, Nvidia’s offering remained the top choice for creators.
