LuxMark & RedShift

LuxMark v3.1 Benchmark

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 RTX 2060 FE shows that raw OpenCL performance is impressive on yet another Turing GPU based card. We saw almost a 77% performance improvement over the EVGA GeForce GTX 1060 SC Gaming in the hotel scene!

Redshift Renderer

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 RTX 2060 FE renders the Age of Vultures benchark scene in 15 minutes and 4 seconds. That makes it about 4% faster than the GeForce GTX 1070 Ti or about 35% faster than the GeForce GTX 1060 6GB. There is a pretty big performance gap (roughly 25%) between the RTX 2060 and the RTX 2070, so if rendering time matters the answer is clear what GeForce card will get your work done quicker.
