Hello guys, I wanted to ask for a suggestion for a good laptop. I won't work on Houdini everyday, so it's mainly for sometimes uses, and also be able to run it/simulate something (not too heavy). I know a workstation would be better, but I am travelling too much right now, would be impossible.. Dell 15.6'' ( this one cost 150 less) Intel® Core™ i7-8750H Processor RAM: 16 GB / Storage: 512 GB SSD Graphics: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 Ti 4 GB Razer Blade 15.6" Intel® Core™ i7-8750H Processor RAM: 16 GB / Storage: 256 GB SSD Graphics: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 6 GB I know the specs in the sidefx website says min GTX 1060, but maybe the 1050 ti will do fine as well. or not? What do you think between those two? Or do you have any suggestions for around the same price? Thanks!
eebling posted a topic in HardwareHi, Has anyone seen much information about the latest Nvidia cards that will be coming out end September in relation to GPU rendering.? I have been waiting for the specs on these cards for months, and finally they have been released, but of course all the articles so far that I have seen are still somewhat speculation on performance and "leaks" of specs that may or may not be real and all are geared towards gaming. I must say, some of these leaked tests aren't too impressive, like 5% performance increases on the new GTX2080ti over the old 1080ti, but I would have to assume that's because the software doing the tests isn't taking advantage of the RT and tensor cores. I am disappointed that on a $1200 card, they still only have the same 11GB of ram as the 1080ti has, although it is faster/newer ram, I was hoping for more ram.! Have there been any statements made by redshift or otoy about what speed improvements will come form having a card with "RT and tensor cores"..? Just wondering because I will be needing another 2 gfx cards in the next month, and the 10 series cards are having great price drops recently, some 1070ti's are as low as $399. If these new flashy RT cores are going to be a huge performance gain, then I will probably hold out for at least the 2070's. Any info would be great. Thanks. E
Hey, before messing inside my PC, I thought I'd ask here: I have a old GTX580 sitting around, and a GTX980 in my PC. Could I use it to help on GPU rendering? (I'm testing RedShift). Is there some step to follow in order to have it working as dual GPU rendering? Is that 580 too old? Is it worse it?
