After looking around the web for a while, I've gathered that GPU rendering in Blender is supposed to be much faster than CPU rendering, but on my machine, the CPU is actually slightly faster? My GPU is a GTX 1070ti with a 200mhz OC and my CPU is an i5-8400. Rendering a simple image takes around 45 seconds on the CPU and 50 seconds on the GPU even with the 200mhz OC. Is there something I messed up in the settings? Or is it supposed to be like this?
use the CPU she will be faster, leave the video card just for video, blender works best with CPU
