Hi guys, wonder if you can shed light on something for me.
My old PC went BOOM so I have a new PC, granted on a budget, but not too bad for me.
It’s an Intel I3-4150 with a GT730 2GB graphics card.
Now, according to the blurb, the card has 394 CUDA cores, I had, (mistakenly?), assumed that meant the number of cores it would render tiles with in Cycles. However, even though it is activated as GPU compute, it only renders one tile at a time, veerrryyy slooowwlllyy, whereas I get quite a speed from my 4 threads of the CPU.
Am I indeed mistaking cores for threads, or is the something wrong and I should be getting better performance?
I appreciate it is a “low end” card, but it is all I could afford at the moment, as finances are rather tight.
