OctaneBench – Benchmark results

I use primarily Nvidia GPU cards for rendering, some ML, Cuda projects etc – and occasionally run benchmarks on the cards l have on different workstations for comparison.

Using OctaneBench – click here to download – here are some results. I used OctaneBench 4.00c

GTX970 4GB Desktop PC     94.16











GTX1060 6GB – on Alienware 17R5 Laptop   91.31










GTX 1080 8GB – Desktop PC – 147.30











Seems a bit odd to me that a GTX1060 is beat by a GTX970, but that might be because of the mobile vs desktop version? , l am pretty sure l have ran other tests posted on this website showign a GTX1060 exceeding a GTX970


QuadQuadro M600M 2GB   21.23




Machine Learning & Links

“Machine learning is a subfield of computer science that evolved from the study of pattern recognition and computational learning theory in artificial intelligence. In 1959, Arthur Samuel defined machine learning as a “Field of study that gives computers the ability to learn without being explicitly programmed”.” ..Wikipedia
