The new NVIDIA Titan RTX has a stunning 24GB of video memory, making it very attractive for many editors and colorists working with 8K media. But is the extra VRAM all it has going for it or is it also significantly faster than something like the RTX 2080 Ti 11GB?
Pix4D is an advanced photogrammetry application, suited to a wide range of uses, with a focus on handling images captured by drone cameras. Processing of those images into point clouds and 3D meshes / textures is time-consuming, heavily using a computer’s CPU and GPU. A new version, 4.3, was released recently – so we have tested multiple projects across the new GeForce RTX series of video cards, as well as the previous generation, to see which graphics card performs the best.
Now that OctaneRender has been updated to support the Volta GPU architecture, how well does its performance scale when using multiple Titan Vs? And how does that compare to other popular rendering cards like the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti?
As of version 3.08, the Volta GPU architecture is now supported in OctaneRender. How does it stack up compared to other Titan and GeForce series graphics cards – in terms of both performance and value?
Blackmagic’s DaVinci Resolve is known for how well it utilizes multiple GPUs to improve performance, but is this still true with cards like the new NVIDIA Titan V? And do you really need a Xeon or Dual Xeon setup to get the best performance possible?
If your workflow depends on having 10-bit color support on your primary display, using a workstation graphics card is typically the only way to do so since most consumer cards do not support displaying 10-bit color. But do you really need a Quadro P6000 or can you use a much less expensive card like the Quadro P4000 or Radeon Pro WX 9100 without sacrificing very much performance?
The NVIDIA Titan V has many the features that are not useful in DaVinci Resolve, but it’s raw power allows it to give the highest single GPU playback performance of any GPU we have every tested.
The NVIDIA Titan V is an interesting and powerful card with a mix of features that should improve performance and features that are completely unused by Premiere Pro. The raw power of this card makes it the fastest GPU we’ve testing for Exporting, but it unfortunately is not quite as impressive when it comes to Live Playback performance.
Pix4D is an advanced photogrammetry application, suited to wide range of uses, with a focus on handling images captured by drone cameras. Processing of those images into point clouds and 3D meshes / textures utilizes the video card (GPU) in a workstation, but how much impact do different cards make on overall performance?
