Actual Benchmarks on GTX 680's in Resolve?
on Jun 14, 2012 at 5:06:12 am

About to finally pull the trigger and build a new Windows workstation for Resolve. Before I go scrape the Internet of it's leftover new GTX 580's with 3GBs of RAM, I would like to see if anyone has some actual numbers and benchmarks of the 680s in Resolve? I know the Keplers havn't been holding their own in CUDA and computational performance but by how much in real world use? Resolve, CS6, C4D,etc.. There are 4GB versions of the 680s about to hit and even a dual 680 GPU card with 8GBs from Asus later this year. Would love to hear or see any real numbers and not just Cinebench scores.

Lots of Cuda cores and big memory plus a PCIe V3 bus but does anyone outside of the celebrity gaming community even own one yet? Do you need to do allot of work at 4K in real time? I have 3 x GTX-285 and can do just about anything in 2K that anybody would ever want.

Yeah the bulk of my work is in either two extremes, 1080 or 4K these days. My main client has both a Scarlet and an Epic and several of my short film clients like to ask for 4K masters.

The 680 2GB cards are easy to come by. The 690 is near impossible and the 4GB 680s and the 8GB dual 680 have yet to be released. But rumor has it even with all those cuda cores and bandwidth they still get trounced computationally by 580s. However I would love to know how the current 680's work in Resolve before buying old 580s that are already End of Life.

Thanks Margus. I had noticed that chart but for some reason didn't catch the 680 on there at first glance. Sadly not actual Resolve numbers....but the results seem to ring true as to what I have been hearing. The 600 Keplers just can't seem to hold up to the 500 Fermis in computational tasks. Love to see any other similar results if anyone knows of any? Been watching 2 GTX 580 3GB cards that I might snag up tomorrow or Friday if I can confirm this is truly the case.

for now to me 680 seems like 4000 used to be with nice numbers but not so great performance compared to 285.

it is like cut down version of 580 despite the numbers on paper.

i may be wrong but this is the feeling i get by different posts here.

I just got a set of GTX480's for a second machine based on that chart, seems like the newer cards would only really be a necessity for the larger amounts of GPU Ram for 4k work.

Speaking of benchmarks does anyone have any idea where a GTX 570 would slot in?

I bought a "stock" new EVGA GTX570 2.5GB for use in a Mac Resolve. I had MacVidCards mod it with their firmware as it did not perform well prior to this. I replaced a GT120 + GTX285 combo... I use it as GUI + GPU as I wanted to get the PCI-e slot back. It's at least as powerful as the 120/285 and I can render out larger frame sizes. I have been too busy to benchmark it.

GTX 570 is a great balance of GPU performance and system power draw. I'm actually running with a 2-1 power cable splitter too. It's running in a 2010 12-core 2.66 Mac Pro. I use this machine for Resolve, AE, Symphony, Smoke & MC.

For Resolve I can get 24fps w/ 10-12 nodes and low NR at 1080p Pro Res. 4k Epic renders out at about 10fps at full quality (I think). DPX 4k renders out at about 200mb/s which is as fast as the storage usually likes to go.

I have the same 570 card. Did you feel that the MacVidcards upgrade was worth the extra cost. I was under the impression you would only gain boot screen advantage not a noticeable speed increase after the upgrade. Did you notice quite a change?

In tech sense there should be difference as regular pc runs had the speed of macvids one on data bus.

The results from After Effects are not representative of performance you'll get with Resolve.

We are running extensive tests with the 680 cards, and we hope to have some guidance on this soon. It's looking good so far!

Oooo, would love to see some actual number comparisons between 680s vs 580s in Resolve. Was gonna buy three 580s today but I will hold off tell I hear your numbers.

Hi Rohit. Will be soon. Building a new workstation for Resolve and Motion Graphics...so trying to find the best balance in GPUs. You may not remember me but we met at the 2011 NAB. I had tons of technical questions trying to force an old 2007 Mac Pro to use Resolve. Needless to say I gave up. I will be building a new workstation for that purpose.

Based on our initial results, on both Windows and Linux, the 680s (Gigabyte OC version), and the 580s are both running with fairly similar performance.

Rohit, thanks for that clarification/update. Very helpful.

One question the overclocked 680 is that compared to an overclocked 580 or a stock 580?

Looks like a stock 580. Thanks for posting Rohit. Interesting, so the overclocked 680 has performance similar to that of a standard 580. I'd imagine then the best or one of the best performing cards for resolve might be an overclocked 580. Like the GTX 580 3gb classified. Of course that card could never run in a MacPro, it would require too much power and produce too much heat. But for those running cubix or going to windows, looks like a good choice.

Thanks Rohit, I appreciate the info. That has me intrigued now. I may stall and wait for the 4GB 680s. Only sad thing would be the lack of being able to run them on a hackintosh config. All windows, which is truly where I am probably going.

I'm torn...I can get the new 680 4GB for $20 more than the 580 3GB. Soo 3x580 3GBs or 3x680 4GBs on Windows for Resolve, After Effects, & Premiere work? Would the 4GBs of memory each bring the performance closer to the 580s?

Very interested to hear more. Not too far back we tested the 680 in a windows resolve config and found it to be roughly on par to slightly behind the 580. So the AE results seemed to be in line with what I had seen then. Has there been any optimization in Resolve for the 680? Are you testing it on a PCIe3.0 system per chance?

So we have GTX680 drivers for OSX.

They are in 10.8 DP4 and we even have a way to move them from MBP 2012 install into Mac Pro and have some basic 680 functionality in 10.7.4.

I am in talks with a Hollywood area color facility who will be testing 680 against the Grand Poobah of 580s, the EVGA Classified 3Gb model.

Will keep you posted on results.

I would expect 680 drivers to mature in OSX in 60 days or so.

BTW, the CUDA-Z "Single Precision Float" number for 680 hovers between 1700 and 2000.

The 580 classified does same range but doesn't break 2000 usually.

The OpenGl View numbers in 10.7.4 for 680 are below 580 by quite a bit.

I don't think it is running full speed in OSX yet.

Hey Rohit. Im about to pull the trigger in my workstation. I missed my window to buy some 580s and now I have to get used or pay over $600 for the 3GB versions. I'm thinking of just buying three GTX 680s with 4GB of ram each and hoping for the best. Any new performance comparisons or benchmarks in Resolve with 680s? Hoping the 4GBs will get them a bit closer to the 580s.

If you're getting three of them I don't think the performance hit will be huge between the 580s and 680s as with that many devices you start to run into a bandwidth bottle neck on performance.

Thanks, that's what I'm hoping. Bought 3 of them today (1 for GUI and 2 for GPUs). Ended up buying the Galaxy GTX 680 4GBs due to their custom coolers reported to be quieter than the competition. Bought a board that should be able to utilize all three cards at full 16x bandwidth on PCIe 3.0 slots. Hoping for the best.

Hi Jeremiah,

I'm going in the same path, Windows + GTX 680 or 580.

So, after all, what are your impressions?

Thanks

Well I'm still in process sadly. Turns out when you buy bleeding edge cpus they are hard to cool. I'm on my fourth set of heatsinks. Here's to hoping these work. Should be another week or two before I have it all stress tested and all 3 GTX 680s in there. I will let ya know. Thx.
