Hi all! We’ve received quite a lot of questions about the new NVIDIA 3080 and 3090 and the performance in Notch, and I thought I’d just let it be known that we’ve now collected enough data to have an official score for the 3090: 52552 Notchmarks.
We’ve also made a few changes to the Notchmarks page so it works better on mobile, and cleaned it up a bit. We are still interested in getting an official score for the 3080 as well, so if you have one of those cards, go ahead and go to “Benchmarking” in Notch Builder, run it, and submit the score, thanks!
Nothing on the new AMD card; we can only look at Notchmarks tests done in the field, and so far there has been zero on that card (understandably, since it’s not available yet).
Notch is GPU vendor agnostic with the exception of specific features that rely on vendor SDKs, such as the NVIDIA OptiX denoiser and the new NVIDIA AR Broadcast SDK.
As for AMD cards, I’m sure this new one will be their best one yet, though history tells us AMD has had driver and performance trouble with every generation. If you’re looking for great Notch performance today, get an NVIDIA card.
Actually using the 5700XT since launch, I can confirm some driver issues during the first 3-4 months. After that, I can’t say I’ve noticed it. Performance has otherwise been good. Notchmarks on my home-computer (which then is unconfirmed) gives a score of around 30 000+/-.
For upcoming cards, wait for reviews - and maybe a price drop/super cards! If AMD follows through and drivers are good at launch, this will probably lead to better pricing and products overall.
Yes, I was surprised at that as well, especially since the 2080 Super clocks in at about 28 000. I’m not sure how the score is evaluated though, and if other parts of the system makes for a better score. It’s not very good for pathtracing in realtime, and there isn’t a HW denoiser - but it should be interesting to see how the upcoming cards will handle Notch.
researching a bit more it seems the mobile 3080 (version around 130w) is on par with a desktop 3060ti. Not sure how that stacks up in the Notch-marks but it surely must be below 2080ti?
Although I have seen bechmarks where a mobile 3080 outperformed the RTX Titan in vray…
Still waiting for my 3090 to arrive. Although it seems to be quite a wait…
I used a 6900xt for a couple of projects and although I was getting about 70.000 in the bench it just didn’t feel smoother or faster than the 3090 with 4k+ resolutions.The vram easily got saturated whereas the 3090 still has margin. it might be it.
