Comparativa de gráficas: Geekbench 4 adds GPU Compute!



In the past, Geekbench has tested CPU (integer, floating point, memory speed). Geekbench 4 adds a GPU computation. We decided to compare a collection GPUs. Some of the featured GPUs don't yet run under Mac OS X or macOS Sierra but they ALL run under Windows. So, since Geekbench 4 is a cross platform app, we decided to use the Razer Blade Stealth laptop and Razer Core running Windows 10 for this shootout.



GTX 1080 = NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 Founders Edition (8G)

GTX 1070 = ASUS NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 Founders Edition (8G)

GTX 980 Ti = eVGA NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980 Ti (6G)

R9 Fury = Sapphire Nitro Radeon R9 Fury (4G)

RX 480 = ASUS ROG Radeon RX 480 STRIX (8G)

GTX 980 = NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980 (4G)

HD 7950 = Sapphire Radeon HD 7950 Mac Edition (3G)

GTX 680 = eVGA NVIDIA GeForce GTX 680 Mac Edition (2G)







Una pena que en la comparativa no esté la GTX 1060

Otra caja externa, Thunderbolt 3 con conexión USB-C: AKiTiO Node






The Thunderbolt™ 3 eGXF box is a low cost expansion chassis designed to house an external graphics card. Connected to the computer via Thunderbolt 3, the additional GPU power instantly upgrades a regular laptop or a mini PC and makes it possible to do things that would normally require a high-end workstation or gaming computer. For video editors and colorists, the dedicated GPU reduces the time it takes to render the footage, a computer that was not powerful enough for a VR headset is now potentially VR ready and for those that like to play games, these can now run at much higher frame rates than before.




  • Thunderbolt™ 3 for lighting fast transfer speeds up to 40 Gbps
  • 1 PCIe (x16) slot supporting full-length, full-height, double-width cards
  • Spacious enclosure for use with standard and large sized graphics cards
  • Built-in 400W SFX power supply to provide extra power to GPU
  • PCIe x16 slot supplying up to 75W of power
  • 4 lane PCI Express 3.0 compliant interface
  • Removable back panel for double-width cards
  • Carry handle to easily transport the device




Y comparativa con otras opciones: AKiTiO Introduces Node: Thunderbolt 3 eGFX Box for $299



AKiTiO Node $299

BizonTech BizonBox 3 $649

PowerColor Devil Box $379

Razer Core $499



Aún siendo 299$ un precio caro, supone una gran diferencia con el resto

Apenas se disfruta de las Polaris, AMD ya piensa en las siguientes tarjetas gráficas: The AMD Vega GPU Architecture Teaser: Higher IPC, Tiling, & More, Coming in H1’2017



As AMD was in the process of ramping up for the Polaris launch last year, one of the unexpected but much appreciated measures they took was to release a bare-bones GPU architecture roadmap for the next few years. AMD has traditionally held their cards very close to their proverbial chest on what they’re working on next, typically only announcing a new architecture weeks before it’s set to launch in retail products. Polaris itself was a departure from that, as it was announced a good 5 months in advance, but last year’s roadmap was the first honest-to-goodness look we’ve had at AMD’s long-term plans in a long time.


What did that map show us? After 2016’s Polaris would come Vega, and after that would be Navi. As a high-level roadmap it didn’t show us much – in fact other than a timeframe, the only detail attached to Vega was “HBM2” - but it was enough to help understand one of the things AMD would be doing architecturally to set Vega apart from Polaris. As for the timeframe itself, that was ambiguous at best in AMD’s roadmap. But now as we draw closer to the launch of Vega, the picture has become clearer. AMD will be hitting a yearly cadence with Vega. The first chip, which tapped out last year, will be launching in the first half of this year (H1’17).


To that end, with Vega’s launch not too far over the horizon, AMD is ready to start talking about what will be their next GPU architecture. Last year at this time we got our first real glimpse into Polaris and what would become the Radeon RX 480/470/460, and this year AMD is back again with a teaser of things to come with Vega.




AMD se centra en la potencia, las Vega estarían por encima de las GTX de Nvidia, en lugar del consumo contenido de las Polaris y en el nuevo tipo de memoria HBM2

Hacía tiempo que tarjetas gráficas PCI-E no venían con drivers para OS X de fábrica: Nvidia’s new Titan Xp will come with Mac drivers



Nvidia on Thursday released a new flagship graphics card, the Titan Xp. While Mac users probably wouldn’t normally care about graphics card announcements, there are a couple of reasons why the Titan Xp demands your attention.


To start, Nvidia will release Mac drivers for the Titan Xp. On its company blog, Nvidia says that, “this gives Mac users access to the immense horsepower delivered by our award-winning Pascal-powered GPUs.”




Desde hacía un tiempo, era Apple la que incluía algunos drivers compatibles en OS X

Nvidia va a volver a hacer drivers para MacOS con la arquitectura Pascal:



NVIDIA recognizes the desire Mac users have for the greatest functionality and highest performance. Next week, we’ll be posting a new driver that enables Pascal-based graphics cards and allows these users to have a significant increase in both.

Nvidia quiere potenciar los ultrabooks y ha lanzado sus gráficas más potentes para este formato bajo la denominación Max-Q: GEFORCE® GTX WITH MAX-Q DESIGN



For the first time ever, all GeForce GTX GPUs are available in laptops as thin as 18mm. It’s all made possible by Max-Q, an innovative approach to designing the world’s thinnest, fastest, and quietest gaming laptops. Everything’s engineered for the ultimate thin gaming laptop experience, including the laptop, chip, drivers, thermal and electrical components, and more.

HP ha sido de los primeros fabricantes en lanzar portátiles con Nvidia Max-Q, pero lo más interesante es que también se apuntan a las cajas externas con Thunderbolt 3: HP Omen Accelerator



HP’s $299 Omen Accelerator takes the external-GPU dock to its logical conclusion. While most current models seem to stop at the GPU part—they let you run an external graphics card with your laptop, but they do little else—the Omen Accelerator also supports storage and ethernet over a Thunderbolt 3 connection.


The Omen Accelerator features a 500-watt PSU, Gigabit ethernet and a 2.5-inch drive bay. You can dock your laptop and immediately have access to more storage, a wired ethernet connection and, of course, your GPU. HP says the Omen Accelerator will support GPUs that draw up to 300 watts.


The price of the bare cabinet, whose propped-up profile somewhat resembles that of the hulking Omen X, is $299, which is pretty reasonable compared to the competition. GPU options include Nvidia’s GeForce GTX 1060 or 1070, or AMD’s Radeon RX 580. Storage options include 1TB hard drives and a 256GB SSD.


The Omen Accelerator is certified to work with the company’s Spectre 13, Spectre x360 13, Spectre x360 15, EliteBook x360 1030 G2, and Envy 27 All-in-One and Envy Curved All-in-One. In theory, other laptops that support external graphics over Thunderbolt 3 should also work.


The only real snag: If you want the Omen Accelerator, you can’t buy one until August.

Una de las primeras AMD con arquitectura Vega: AMD Radeon Vega Frontier Edition



After what appears to be a very unusual false start, AMD has now formally launched their new Radeon Vega Frontier Edition card. First announced back in mid-May, the unusual card, which AMD is all but going out of their way to dissuade their usual consumer base from buying, will be available today for $999. Meanwhile its liquid cooled counterpart, which was also announced at the time, will be available later on in Q3 for $1499.


Feeding the GPU is AMD’s previously announced dual stack HBM2 configuration, which is now confirmed to be a pair of 8 layer, 8GB “8-Hi” stacks. AMD has the Vega FE’s memory clocked at just under 1.9Gbps, which gives the card a total memory bandwidth of 483GB/sec. And for anyone paying close attention to AMD’s naming scheme here, they are officially calling this “HBC” memory – a callback to Vega’s High Bandwidth Cache design.


For display outputs, the Vega FE devotes its entire second slot to airflow, so all of the display connectors are found on the first slot. Typical for AMD cards of the past couple of years, we’re looking at 3x DP 1.4 ports along with 1x HDMI port. AMD is also throwing in a passive DP to SL-DVI adapter in the box.





Después llegarán más modelos de la arquitectura Vega:

Por la maldita Apple y su mania de hacer portátiles planos y ligeros, no podremos ver cosas como el MSI GT83 con el símbolo de la manzana






O el ASUS ROG GX800 con su discreto dock de refrigeración líquida





Bueno también tienes los Steath Pro de MSI con 1,8 kg y la 1060... o los Razerblade...
