Hello all, hope everyone is well.
I’m having an issue with my GPU. I’m on Blender 2.91.0/Windows 10 Home 64 bit. The machine has a GeForce RTX 2080 Ti with 12gb of memory, and now whenever I render with GPU I get this somewhat scary sound like a bomb is about to go off.
In the video it’s rendering a 1200px x 900px image with volumetrics at 1000 samples. It had been rendering for about a minute before the whine really kicked in.
I always stop it before it can complete because it sounds bad. Rendering with the CPU works just fine, obviously much slower. Rendering the same image but at half size (or half samples) works fine too. This machine hadn’t got a lot of use in the last few months, so not a lot of rendering had been done.
I checked the connection and seating and it’s firmly in there. Beyond that I can’t diagnose it.
Does anyone have any experience with this?
