Blender

Before getting to the games we will look at Blender. The reason is quite simple: everything points to the new Series 30-cards to be great cards for content creating, the RTX 3090 in particualr due to its 24 GB of memory.

Blender is the free and open source 3D creation suite. It supports the entirety of the 3D pipeline—modeling, rigging, animation, simulation, rendering, compositing and motion tracking, even video editing and game creation. Advanced users employ Blender’s API for Python scripting to customize the application and write specialized tools; often these are included in Blender’s future releases.

The Blender benchmark renders a bunch of scenes and displays how long it takes to render each. In the table below I’ve summed up all the different scenes rendering times in seconds. A lower score is better.

NVIDIA OptiX is a domain-specific API designed for accelerating ray tracing. It provides a complete package with programmable ray generation, intersection and shading while using RT Cores on NVIDIA RTX GPUs for accelerating Bounding Volume Hierarchy (BVH) traversal and ray/triangle intersection testing.

The biggest decrease in time comes when using CUDA for rendering where the total time of rendering all the scenes are reduced by almost 100 seconds. When switching to the Optix API we also see a similar decrease. In both cases you get around 13-16% decrease in time to render all the scenes.

ASUS ROG Zephyrus G15 – AMD and Nvidia in sweet harmony

For a long time the combination Intel/Nvidia was the norm for powerful gaming laptops.  AMD has tried to break in to the market but not had much success. The laptop I am looking at today, ASUS ROG Zephyrus G15, is another challenger to the old partnership. It comes with AMD:s latest mobile part, the Ryzen 7 4800HS combined with a Nvidia RTX2060 Max-Q, all packed into a nice slim laptop with a 15" 240 Hz 1080P IPS-screen.
