OpenGL: TcVis And NX
Siemens Teamcenter Visualization Mockup (tvcis-02)
As we saw in the Pro/ENGINEER benchmark, these numbers show why it's better to use professional-class hardware and drivers for workstation-oriented software. AMD's Radeon HD 7970 GHz Edition is the only card that even comes close to being usable, and when we say it comes close, we don’t mean it actually gets there. The GeForce GTX Titan’s performance is nowhere near acceptable for this type of work.
Siemens NX (snx-01)
The same picture emerges once again. AMD's Radeon HD 7970 GHz Edition manages a frame rate that's three times as fast as the Titan.
We know from the numbers we're running for our workstation story that Nvidia's Quadro cards are highly competitive in professional applications. The same cannot be said about the company's desktop-oriented boards, though. Apart from EnSight and Maya, even a $1,000 GeForce GTX Titan just isn't usable.

Why are there not workstation cards in the graphs?Reply
Thanks for all the juicy new benchmarks!Reply
BTW, I'm hoping the OpenCL benchmarks all make it to the GPU Charts. I'd like to know how the HD 7870 stacks up, at least. Being a new owner of one, I'm pleased at the showing made by the other Radeons. I had expected Titan to better on OpenCL, based on all the hype.
k1114Why are there not workstation cards in the graphs?Because it would be pointless. They use the same GPUs, but clocked lower and with ECC memory.Reply
The whole point of Titan was to make a consumer card based on the Tesla GPU. I don't think AMD has a separate GPU for their workstation or "SKY" cards.
Theres something weird with your ratGPU gpu rendering openCL test results. you say lower is better in seconds but yet the numbers are arranged to make it look like more seconds is better.Reply
Too much data here for a proper conclusion. Here is what i conclude :Reply
In Pro applications :
1. 7970 is generally quite bad.
2. Titan has mixed performance.
3. Drivers make or break a card.
In more consumer friendly 'general' apps :
1. 7970 dominates. Completely.
2. 680 is piss poor (as expected)
3. 580 may or may not compete.
4. Titan is not worth having.
AMD needs to tie up moar with Pro app developers. Thats the market which is ever expanding, and will bring huge revenue.
Would have been interesting to see how the FirePro version of 7970 performs compared to the HD7970.

It isn't pointless, since it helps put into perspective where this non-pro video card stands in the professional world. It's like making a lot of gaming benchmarks out of professional cards with no non-pro cards. You need perspective.
Other than that, is was an interesting read.
I would honestly have liked to see a GTX 690 and 7990(or 7970 x-fire) in the mix to see how titan performs at relatively equal price points.Reply
I find the rendered scenes more interesting than the graphs.Reply
I would likd to see the Ares II in action :DReply

Show me one benchmark where AMD actually does well? the amount of fanboyism in your comment is unsettling, go back to your cave, Troll.
