2x RX480 v GTX 1070 – Compute – Premiere Pro / DaVinci Resolve / Photoshop Benchmarks

So given the RX 480’s performance against one GTX 1070 we wanted to see how it compete against the GTX 1080 if we had 2x RX 480’s in our system,


6700k – 32gb DDR4 – SM961 SSD

We ran some Playback tests below; Blackmagic’s Davinci Resolve and Adobe Premiere Pro

We see no real change in either of the cards, The only performance we see is in Premiere Pro where we can playback smoothly at 1/2 quality.

Now to some more “Real World” test; Blackmagic’s Davinci Resolve and Adobe Premiere Pro and Photoshop

On short exports we dont see vast improvements, While the 2x RX 480’s beat the 1070 it only just beats it and is nothing worth truly talking about. On the long export in Davinci Resolve we see the gap extend and the true force of the GTX 1080 is shown.

Now to the “Candle Light” test; Blackmagic’s Davinci Resolve

Here we see the Dual RX 480’s a clear winners and the case of 2 is better than 1. I actually thought before running the tests the GTX 1080 would out do the RX 480’s but that wasn’t the case and at a much lower price point, Below we can see how much cheaper it is per dollar.

Now to the Price to Performance ratios; this is calculated by totalling the number of frames achieved in the Candle Light test in Davinci Resolve then divided by the cost.

We see the Dual RX 480’s coming in a $8 a frame while the 1080 is at $13 a frame, Clear winner here are the Dual AMD cards.


Theres no doubt the RX 480’s are the clear winner in price to performance in the Candle Light test, On long exports and with Premiere we see the GTX 1080 take the lead. I think AMD has done a great job and I’m looking forward to there VEGA series of GPU’s until then my pick would be a single RX 480 for my workstation to tie me over until we see what AMD bring to the table.

As always thanks for reading & watching
