LuxMark is a OpenCL cross-platform benchmark tool that has been around since 2009. It was intended as a promotional tool for LuxCoreRender and remains a popular benchmark for those interested in OpenCL performance. LuxMark is now based on LuxCore, the LuxRender v2.x API available under Apache Licence 2.0 and freely usable in open source and commercial applications.

Benchmark Results: The XFX Radeon RX 590 Fatboy does really well in this OpenCL benchmark for a sub $300 graphics card. 

SiSoftware Sandra GPGPU Testing

We fired up SiSoftware Sandra Titanium 2018 SP2b (version 28.31) to look at GPGPU performance. This benchmark isn’t really aimed at gamers, but some will likely find the results interesting.

The GPGPU Processing test shows the Radeon RX 580 has 8.66 GFLOPS of half-float shading performance and that was bumped up to 9.90 GFLOPS on the Radeon RX 590. This is a 14% gain and about where we expected with the higher clock speeds.
