Hi. I am having some trouble with Cycles. I bought a new laptop, and I am now setting up my rendering settings. Cycles is supposed to render much faster than CPU, but that is not the case for me.
My laptop setup is:
I have adjusted Cycles rendersettings according to this guide: http://www.blenderguru.com/articles/4-easy-ways-to-speed-up-cycles/
I tested rendertimes on a interior scene that I have been working on, and I got the following results:
CPU 16x16 tiles - 3:58
CPU 32x32 tiles - 3:59
GPU 256x256 tiles - 4:21
GPU 128x128 tiles - 4:39
What could cause this? Is my CPU just so much better in comparison to my GPU, or can I somehow improve my GPU results?
