NVIDIA Quadro RTX 4000 Review: Turing Powered Pro Graphics

NVIDIA Quadro RTX 4000 - Setup, Cryptography, And Image Processing

How We Configured Our Test Systems: We tested the professional graphics cards in this article on an Intel X299-based motherboard powered by an Intel Core i9-9980XE 18-core processor and 32B of Corsair DDR4 RAM. The first thing we did when configuring the test system was enter the UEFI and set all values to their "high performance" or "optimal" default settings and disabled any integrated peripherals that wouldn't be put to use. The memory's X.M.P. profile was enabled to ensure optimal memory performance, the solid state drive was formatted and Windows 10 Professional x64 was installed. When the installation was complete, we fully updated the OS and installed all of the drivers, applications, and benchmark tools necessary to complete our tests.

Cryptography And Image Processing OpenCL / CUDA Performance Tests
SANDRA's GPGPU Image Processing benchmark runs through an array of filters on its reference data and offers up an aggregate score, derived from a number of individual results. Its GPGPU Cryptography benchmark churns through an assortment of workloads, and presents individual results for overall bandwidth, AES256 encryption and decryption, and SHA2-256 hashing bandwidth. CUDA and OpenCL code paths are available in these tests; we used CUDA the NVIDIA-powered cards and OpenCL on the Radeon Pro WX cards, so each could put their best foot forward.



The Quadro RX 4000 finishes well out in front of the Quadro P4000 and Radeon Pro WX7100, and even surpasses the P5000 in hashing bandwidth. It is only in the AES256 encryption / decryption test that the RX 4000 drops in behind the Radeon Pro WX 7100.

Image processing performance was relatively strong with the Quadro RX 4000. Here, the card nearly catches the Radeon Pro WX 8200 and has no trouble outpacing the Quadro P4000 or P5000.
