Recently the Nvidia GeForce RTX 3090 and AMD’s upcoming Radeon RX 6800 XT were paired together with the same type of CPU to run for various simulations of Vulkan Geekbench tests. The CPU that was used for testing was the beast that comes with 16 cores and 32 threads. That’s right; we are talking about the processor none other than the AMD’s Ryzen 9 5950X.
We already know that Vulkan testing is designed mainly for the developers to take full advantage of their CPU’s multithreading capacity. Hence the more threads a processor has, the better it is. It is a platform designed for beasts like Ruzen 9 5950X to shine.
The Radeon RX 6800 XT GPU, when paired with the Ryzen 9 5950X, resulted in a score of 167,622 points. The benchmark is the highest score currently available on Vulkan’s benchmark charts. Before this, the TITAN V from Nvidia was at the highest rank in Vulkan with 153,210 points. Now when GeForce RTX 3090 was paired with the Ryzen 9 5950X, it only managed to get a score of 136,182 points. It only proves that the upcoming Navi 21 graphics card is superior in all sense.
However, the Vulkan benchmark posted another exciting result that shook AMD’s AMD on the last note. The 32 threaded Ryzen 9 5950X was once again paired with the Nvidia GeForce RTX 3090 graphics card, and this time it generated a score of 188,198 points. Now this result by Nvidia has become the top-ranked on Vulkan’s benchmark website.
Coming to specifications, the RX 6800 XT comes with 4,608 stream processors and 20.74 TFLOPs. It has 16 GB of VRAM along with 512 GB/s bandwidth. It is a high performing GPU. Now speaking of its rival, the green teams RTX 3090, on the other hand, has 10,496 CUDA cores and 35.58 TFLOPs. It comes with 24 GB of VRAM and 936.2 GB/s bandwidth. No matter how you slice it, Nvidia’s card has superiority over AMD’s specs and better performance. But in the end, it matters who can make more profits with their sales.
