Hello everyone,

I'm planning on upgrading my pc before I head back to college in August. I will be using this computer for 3d modeling and rendering, as well as gaming on a 1440 monitor.

I have a choice between the RX 6800 and the RTX 3070, both of which will be paired with a Ryzen 5950x CPU. My question is how does the Rx 6800 perform in programs such as Maya and 3ds Max, both using Vray, as well as Zbrush?

I understand that in VRay you can't use GPU rendering with an AMD card, but would a stronger CPU compensate for this?

I mainly use CPU rendering right now, But I also make use of the active viewport rendering.
Iirc Maya supports rendering on RTX cards, but not fully on RX cards, and so do several other programs. So for GPU rendering, Invidia is likely the best choice. However, I'm not an expert on this and don't know your specific tasks, so maybe read this, it might help you deciding
