Hello all, I am having problems with rendering times. I’ve been told that GPUs can render an exact scene up to several times as fast, at least according to Andrew Price.
While following Andrew’s Tutorial his rendering time at 1400 by 1024 at 10 samples was about 2.5-5 seconds, mines was roughly 30-50 seconds. According to the guide, he claims cycles render is much faster using a GPU oppose to CPU. I decided I wanted to go for a shot, I went File-User Preferences Compute Divice but came across this…
according to Andrew “Note: GPU rendering is currently only possibile on Nvidia Graphics card. Support for AMD cards has been put on hold due to driver and hardware limitations”.
So here’s my current computer, and how will I go about upgrading my computer, or enabling the GPU settings? For a touchsmart computer, would it be possible to place in a nividir graphics card?
