Review | Revealing the Performance of NVIDIA RTX 5000 Ada

  By : Leadtek AI Expert     539

The NVIDIA RTX™ 5000 Ada Generation GPU is supported by the NVIDIA Ada Lovelace architecture and features a 4nm manufacturing process. It belongs to the high-end products within the Ada Lovelace architecture. The NVIDIA RTX 5000 Ada Generation maintains the same exterior design as the NVIDIA RTX A5000, boasting 12,800 CUDA cores, 400 4th generation Tensor Cores, 100 3rd generation RT Cores, and a massive 32GB of ECC memory. In this test, our primary focus is the performance comparison of the RTX 5000 Ada against the RTX A5000 in graphical interaction and rendering.

Single-precision floating-point operation performance is a crucial indicator for GPUs, used in many calculations. From the test results, the RTX 5000 Ada achieves a performance of 63.1T, while the RTX A5000 only reaches 30.5T. Thus, the single-precision floating-point operation performance of the RTX 5000 Ada is 2.07 times that of the RTX A5000.


2. Graphics Performance: SPECviewperf 2020 v3

SPECviewperf 2020 v3 primarily evaluates professional graphics performance of graphics cards, including common software like 3ds Max, Maya, Catia, SNX, SolidWorks, Creo, and medical and energy simulation performance tests. It scores by analogizing the speed of software scene interaction, ultimately determining the relative graphics interaction performance of the graphics card.

From the SPECviewperf 2020 v3 test results, it's evident that the RTX 5000 Ada shows a noticeable improvement in graphics interaction performance compared to the RTX A5000. The most improved project is in SNX, where the RTX 5000 Ada's performance reaches 2.06 times that of the RTX A5000.



3. Real-time Rendering Performance

Superposition

Superposition is a Benchmark for testing GPU real-time rendering performance. The camera roams through 3D scenes, rendering movements, lighting, and textures in real-time. This test contrasts 4K resolution real-time rendering using DirectX and OpenGL graphics APIs.

In NVIDIA Omniverse USD Composer's real-time ray tracing rendering, owing to its support for DLSS Frame Generation, the RTX 5000 Ada demonstrates higher frame rates. In 4K resolution, it achieves 47 frames of real-time rendering, which is 3.36 times that of the RTX A5000 in the same scene; in FHD resolution, it achieves 110 frames, 3.67 times that of the RTX A5000.



Unreal Engine 5.3

In the test of UE's real-time rendering performance, the RTX 5000 Ada exhibits 1.71 times the performance of the RTX A5000, showing significant improvement over the previous generation product.



4. Offline Rendering Performance

Offline rendering finds broad applications in media entertainment, design manufacturing, and architectural industries. Many renderers support GPU rendering, where rendering speed depends on the GPU's computational speed.


V-Ray Benchmark

In FHD video rendering, the RTX 5000 Ada's offline rendering performance is 2.32 times that of the RTX A5000. In 2K image rendering, the RTX 5000 Ada surpasses the RTX A5000 by 1.45 times.


Conclusion

This test primarily compares the graphics and rendering performance of the graphics card.

In Graphics Performance

The all-new NVIDIA RTX 5000 Ada Generation graphics card boasts more CUDA cores, thus providing more robust support for CAD graphic interaction modeling and 3D scene rendering. Notably, there's a significant improvement in software like Siemens NX.


In Rendering

Based on the new NVIDIA Ada Lovelace architecture, the RTX 5000 Ada graphics card can support DLSS Frame Generation. This enables a nearly 2-fold increase in frame rate when using RTX-Realtime rendering in Omniverse USD Composer, providing close to 4 times the support of the RTX A5000. It's foreseeable that in future 3D visualization projects, DLSS will be an efficient solution for rendering frame rate issues. The NVIDIA Ada Lovelace architecture-supported professional graphics card with DLSS support will become the rendering mainstay. Additionally, for renderers using CUDA or RTX rendering technology, the RTX 5000 Ada provides significantly enhanced rendering performance.
