Compute Performance


The rise of GPU acceleration, GPGPU and various forms of parallel computing mean that the compute performance of GPUs is a noteworthy consideration when choosing which graphics cards to buy. We run three GPU compute benchmarks to give you an idea of how much compute performance each graphics card has.

Basemark (OpenCL)

Basemark CL by Rightware is a comprehensive benchmark tool designed to measure the performance of OpenCL 1.1 implementations on various devices ranging from desktops to embedded systems. Basemark CL uses OpenGL ES 2.0 or OpenGL 2.1 for rendering, depending on the platform. From Rightware.com.

ComputeMark (DX11 Compute)

ComputeMark is first 100% DirectX 11 Compute Shader benchmark and ultimate GPU burner. From ComputeMark.com.

Luxmark (OpenCL)

LuxMark is a OpenCL benchmark tool. The idea for the program was conceived in 2009 by Jean-Francois ‘Jromang’ Romang. The idea was quite simple, wrap SLG inside an easy to use graphical user interface and use it as a benchmark for OpenCL. From LuxRender.net.

    I have to ask myself, has amd shot themselves, and the 260x by releasing the 265 ?……probably, buying an overclocked 260x for the same price as a stock 265 will never make sense, seeing as they cost the same, but the 265 is around 35% faster.

      Yes I agree, I think AMD have priced a lot of the R7 series way too close for comfort. But I guess from a consumer standpoint the more options the better right?

      Edit: also I think a lot of the problem is when AMD reduced the R7 260X MSRP down from $140 to $120 a lot of retailers didn’t drop prices in response. Then when the R7 265 came out you find a lot of R7 260Xs with a similar price. But if you can pick up a decent R7 260X for $120 then that’s 20% cheaper for a card that is 20-25% slower so in my opinion that’s a decent deal.

    Notice in the OC page that you said the GTX 750Ti was an OC card?
