Hi, no single (Lowend) GTX 760 but I fixed all issues with performance copying preset settings to Linux. Not all settings are reachable on Linux atm. but I am not in hurry.
I know you are a speed fan but may you remember a patch to add some wait states to the GPU to don´t block your system completely during render?
I cant find it yet at developer.blender.org.
I can render in Octane and surf the internet with some limitations without slow down render time. May a few % less.
It would be nice to have a switch for it, may GPU load High/Low or something.
At least on windows, the experience is smooth connecting. What I do is to connect my screen to the iGPU to have the discrete GPU completely free for rendering. But I’ll have a look to this switch. If you find the exact differential number, it would be helpful to get it faster.
I have reproduced the interior rendering demonstration that @bliblubli already posted a few times, but this time without screen recording overhead - 720p, 100 spp, 0.02 scrambling distance —> 5 sec render time with 2080Ti
I’m on it. You provided the file 13 hours ago, I do my best. It can even take some days to get fixed. Look at this bug for example which affects many archviz scenes https://developer.blender.org/T54486. reported more than a year ago, still no fix although the BF has many devs and now very good funding. You found a scene which has problem, I’m sorry for that, but I think it’s normal to give some time to people to react. Did you ever made a bug report to Microsoft or Autodesk?
If I can’t fix it in a reasonable time, I refund you. But I used to bug fixing, most bugs I got reported got fixed in a day or two. Look here for a bug report and here for the solution and here what the same customer who experienced bugs says. A bit of patience please
So I did several test and couldn’t reproduce your noise bug. I used both the march version and the latest beta, both render with the same noise level. The noise is different (normal as E-Cycles uses a new sampler), but not higher:
Master takes 80 secs to do the path tracing and outputs this image (time is written on the line "time without synchronisation):
Thanks a lot for showing the true speed of E-Cycles with external recording I should get such a setup too. But the slowdown of live screen recording helps some to believe.
5 seconds for archviz
