RLGuy, back in January I asked about GPU acceleration, and you had said it had been removed. Is there nothing on RTX GPUs (especially multiple RTX) that could accelerate FF?
And to my fellow hardware geeks, since FF may be in my near future: I have an i7-5820k and 32GB quad-channel RAM. For the most part, I’m able to work pretty comfortably, since I have three GPUs (1x 2070 Super + 2x 980Ti - for now - will be 3x 2070 Super soon) and whether in Blender, Resolve/Fusion, AE, Painter, etc, my workstation never feels sluggish… But after discovering yesterday that used i7-5960X CPUs can now be had on ebay for about $250 (huge drop from the last time I looked), I am seriously considering upgrading. I spend a lot more of my time thinking about GPUs, and don’t research CPUs stuff that much, since rendering is my bread-and-butter. So would I see a truly significant difference in FLIP FLuids solving with a 5960X over a 5820K, and thus would be a no-brainer to upgrade?.. I know that I would gain 12 lanes, more cores, more cache, etc, and that is obviously desirable and nice and all, but I’m talking specifically about performance in fluid solving… Anyone have any good guidance on this?
