NVIDIA says that its flagship GeForce RTX 3090 graphics card saves an hour against AMD’s Threadripper 3990X CPU in rendering performance.

In its latest Studio Driver suite (April), NVIDIA has brought a range of options for optimizations for the most popular 3D applications such as Unreal Engine 5, Cinema 4D, and Chaos Vantage. According to NVIDIA, the new driver is said to support the new NVIDIA Omniverse connectors from Blender and Redshift.

To showcase the rendering performance progress, NVIDIA used its flagship GeForce RTX 3090 graphics card and compared it to the AMD’s 64-core CPU based on the Zen 2 core architecture Ryzen Threadripper 3990X. According to NVIDIA, Maxon’s Cinema 4D version S26 is accelerated by NVIDIA RTX GPUs which contain all-new cloth and rope dynamics. To render ‘The City’ scene, GeForce RTX 3090 took just around 7 minutes to complete, on the other hand, the AMD Ryzen Threadripper took more than an hour (65 minutes to be precise).

NVIDIA has collaborated with Epic Games to integrate a host of key RTX technologies with Unreal Engine 5. These plugins are also available on the Unreal Engine Marketplace. RTX-accelerated ray tracing and NVIDIA DLSS in the viewport make iterating on and refining new ideas simpler and faster. For the finished product, those same technologies power beautifully ray-traced graphics while AI enables higher frame rates.

With NVIDIA Reflex — a standard feature in UE5 that does not require a separate plugin or download — PC games running on RTX GPUs experience unimaginably low latency.

NVIDIA real-time denoisers offer real-time performance, increasing the efficiency of art pipelines. RTX global illumination produces realistic bounce lighting in real time, giving artists instant feedback in the Unreal Editor viewport. With the processing power of RTX GPUs, suite of high-quality RTX UE plugins, and the next-generation UE5, there’s no limit to creation.


AMD Ryzen Threadripper 3990X is a content creation powerhouse, in rendering a scene a CPU definitely can not match a GPU, specifically when NVIDIA has drivers and apps that have been mainly optimized to take benefit of RTX technologies. This comparison is created by NVIDIA and has been prepared to prove that for rendering applications GPUs are still the way to go and there is no doubt that a card such as a powerhouse GeForce RTX 3090 is a beast in such applications to function smoothly. An NVIDIA flagship GeForce RTX 3090 paired up with an AMD Ryzen Threadripper CPU is indeed a content creator’s dream setup.
