As the RTX 3090 has significant potential for use by professionals and content creators, here we run a few extra productivity benchmarks to assess its relative performance for these workloads.
Starting off with Blender Classroom, first of all using CUDA. RTX 3090 completes this render in 62 seconds, down from 73 seconds for the RTX 3080 – a 15% reduction in total render time.
Running the same test, but with Optix instead of CUDA, drops render time to 40 seconds for the RTX 3090. However, RTX 3080 also benefits from Optix, and can render the scene in 47 seconds. This means RTX 3090 is still reducing the overall render time by the same 15% compared to RTX 3080.
