    Phoronix: Initial Linux Benchmarks Of The NVIDIA TITAN RTX Graphics Card For Compute & Gaming

    Yesterday I unexpectedly found my hands on a NVIDIA TITAN RTX graphics card as the company's newest Titan graphics card built upon the Turing architecture and is now available via retail channels at $2499 USD. Here is an initial look at the NVIDIA TITAN RTX performance under Ubuntu Linux with a variety of compute workloads (including TensorFlow) as well as for entertainment are some Vulkan gaming benchmarks.

    Ok, found it. In Firefox, right-click on any of the benchmark graphs > This Frame > Show Only This Frame. Look at the URL. The ID is in there, after the "i=".

    Alternatively, right-click on the frame > Inspect Element. The URL is there in the <object> tag, for example:
    Code:
    <object data="//openbenchmarking.org/embed.php?i=1812224-SP-GPUCOMPUT75&amp;sha=e09c2b9&amp;p=2" type="image/svg+xml"></object>

    Thanks for the fast reply! This allowed me to run the benchmarks. For the future: Where do I find the OpenBenchmarking.org ID in the figures? I looked for it, but I am probably not looking in the right place (or else I'm blind...).

    FWIW, to compile the shoc benchmark, I had to search around a little. Turns out, I have gcc-7 and gcc-8 installed. nvcc only likes gcc-7. So I had to run "export CC=gcc-7 CXX=g++-7 NVCCFLAGS="-ccbin g++-7"; phoronix-test-suite benchmark 1812224-SP-GPUCOMPUT75"

    Is there an environment variable to tell luxmark to only use one GPU? It defaults to using all GPUs in my system, and so the results are not really comparable.

    Thanks again and merry Christmas, happy Holidays, seasons greetings to everyone (pick the one you like)!

    It's always available by looking at the OpenBenchmarking.org ID from the graphs embedded in the article. In this case phoronix-test-suite benchmark 1812224-SP-GPUCOMPUT75. The tests are available but do note for the NGC TensorFlow test profile you do need to have a NVIDIA GPU Cloud account where you are signed in with Docker in order to be able to download the images.

    probably will

    Thank you for your invaluable contribution to this discussion. And I thought people subscribe to Phoronix for articles and benchmarks, not forums. How little I knew.

Prime money grab from NVidia for those 24GiB of GDDR6. Unless you think of it as Quadro replacement (for its vram capacity which might be useful in certain workloads). This card makes zero sense for consumers though it doesn't stop NVidia from sampling it to youtube PC gaming influencers hoping to find idiots who will buy it for gaming. And idiots it will find.
