We’ve previously tested the new Hybrid Mode in V-Ray RT 3.6, which combines CPUs and GPUs in order to speed up rendering, on Intel’s Skylake X processors. This time around we are going to test on AMD’s Threadripper 1950X, and use even more powerful GPUs than before. We also take a look at GeForce GTX 1080 Ti vs Titan Xp performance.
V-Ray RT 3.6 Hybrid Mode: Combining CPU and GPUs for Rendering
New in V-Ray RT 3.6, Chaos Group has added Hybrid Rendering: the option to combine CPUs and GPUs in order to render images and animations even faster. We give an overview of how this works, and then explore the impact it can have on rendering speeds.
V-Ray CPU Comparison: New 14, 16, and 18-core Skylake-X Processors
Intel has launched new, higher core count Skylake-X processors. Can they take back the performance crown from AMD’s Threadripper in V-Ray?
Core i7 7820X vs Core i9 7900X: Do PCI-E Lanes Matter For GPU Rendering?
Benchmark results demonstrating that PCI-Express x8 vs x16 speeds don’t impact GPU rendering performance.
V-Ray GPU Rendering Platform Comparison: Skylake X, Xeon W, and Threadripper
This article looks at several motherboard chipsets, including X299 and X399, comparing how well they handle performance scaling across multiple GPUs in V-Ray 3.57.01.
V-Ray CPU Comparison: Skylake-X vs Threadripper
This article looks at the performance of Intel’s Skylake-X CPUs (including the new Core i9 7920X 12-core) compared to AMD’s Threadripper 12- and 16-core CPUs in V-Ray. Several other CPU platforms are also included for reference.
