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.
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.
Intel has launched new, higher core count Skylake-X processors. Can they take back the performance crown from AMD’s Threadripper in Cinebench?
Benchmark results demonstrating that PCI-Express x8 vs x16 speeds don’t impact GPU rendering performance.
