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 GeForce GTX 1660 Ti was found to have more raw OpenCL performance to the GeForce GTX 1060 6GB according to the results from Luxmark.
Redshift is the world’s first fully GPU-accelerated, biased renderer. Redshift renders scenes many times faster than existing CPU-based renderers. We ran the Redshift 2.6.31 benchmark, which only supports NVIDIA graphics cards.
Benchmark Results: The GeForce GTX 1660 finished with a time of 20 minutes and 33 seconds on the Age of Vultures benchark scene in Redshift. This is about 11% faster than the GeForce GTX 1060 6GB, so we found a respectable performance bump in GPU-accelerated rendering here.
