3DMark is the go-to benchmark for gamers because of the ability to share and compare results online. We tested the Inno3D RTX 3080 Ti iChill X4 both in Fire Strike and Time Spy to get a good gauge of DX 11 and DX 12 API performance. We also tested the GPUs in Port Royal, 3DMark’s DX12 Ray Tracing benchmark.
Geekbench is a multi-platform benchmark that’s used to gauge CPU performance and compare them across Windows, Mac, and Mobile. Geekbench 5 is the latest version and doesn’t rely on memory as much compared to the previous Geekbench 4, making it a great tool to measure both single-core and multi-core CPU performance. For our GPU reviews, we both measure OpenCL and Vulkan performance
V-Ray Benchmark is a stand-alone version of V-Ray developed by Chaos Group. It is designed to test the CPU and GPU by rendering sample scenes at a fixed amount of time. V-Ray is a plug-in mostly utilized by 3D computer graphics software applications mainly for industrial design, product design, architecture, film, and video game production. V-Ray is not limited to 64-threads as it supports multi and mega-threading.
