Hi all, my proposal for a new benchmark file for Cycles.
It is based on the Cornell Box.
It is boring.
It is GPU only.
My thoughts about:
I would like to test my GPU not my CPU, so low poly and no post processing to keep the CPU usage very low.
You could also use the default cube and render it 10000 samples but this is really boring.
Open file, hit F12, wrote down:
Thank you and cheers, mib.
How in the world did Eppo get such a fast score on a 560?
And I don’t understand mib2berlin about your comment with a change to 1000 samples that your test was 2 minutes on the GTX 760, so what were the samples on your first test that produced a time of 59 seconds? This is confusing.
Guys, I’ve been looking at the screen caps above and can’t help but see more noise in those images. I rendered my image with 1000 samples as the file was delivered and see a lot less noise, how many samples did Zajooo use? Please compare:
Maybe we should ask DingTo if he can help explain this anomaly as he’s fast become a Cycles expert and I believe he’s worked on the OpenGL version control stuff in trunk. Is this Blender optimization issues, or NVidia hardware crippling?
JWise, the GTX 6/700 cards are really optimized for gaming but I am ok with the Cuda performance of my GTX 760.
I bought it because of its 4GB and less power/noise.
It is not faster as my GTX 560Ti 448 Cores (Sounds like helicopter) and I know it before I buy.
If 1.28GB is ok for you I would wait for Maxwell, GTX 800?
I would love 4GB, but that addition combined with less speed for $320 seems to me to be a bad deal. Effectively I would pay over $300 for 2.8GB of RAM but would have to give up a minor amount of rendering power and have a slightly quieter room in which I work.
Regarding Maxwell, how do we know and how long will it take for us to find out if NVidia cripples the GTX 800 series? I certainly am shy about being first mover on that product, heck I might learn that it’s slower than my old GT9800 the way this is going.
I understand the Quadro line for pro’s, but there is no chance that as a developer for things running on UDK being built with Blender that a Quadro is a good solution for me. And don’t tell me I should be running a Quadro and a Titan, I’m trying to self fund my experiments in VR, hence Blender and not 3DS Max!
LordOdin, no I can´t, my mainboard is broken and I could use only one PCIe slot.
And I spend all my money for the GTX 760.
But in earlier tests it is similar to the GTX 760 and a bit slower than a GTX 570.
I think with both cards I get > 1 minute.
